Join the Department of Biological Sciences at Birkbeck and be part of our ground-breaking and world-leading research. With access to internationally-recognised teachers and state-of-the-art equipment, you can achieve a prestigious University of London qualification while developing your career in science.
Some of the country’s most distinguished scientists have worked at Birkbeck, including Rosalind Franklin, James Lovelock and JD Bernal. We’re proud of our history, and invite you to share in our future.
At postgraduate level we offer a wide range of programmes, including Masters programmes offered part time with classes between 6 pm and 9 pm in the evening, leaving you free to fill your days as you wish, programmes offered by distance learning, so you can study anywhere and at any time, in addition to programmes with the more traditional attendance patterns. If you need to work while you study, that’s no problem at Birkbeck. We can offer you a flexibility that other universities can’t –an approach that means we attract a rich and diverse student population. There’s no such thing as a ‘typical’ Birkbeck student.
The Department of Biological Sciences has been awarded an Athena SWAN silver award, in recognition of our work on equality and diversity.
