Birkbeck - unique

Uniquely, Birkbeck’s full-time Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees are taught in the evening (6.00-9.00pm) enabling international students to study with local part-time students, many of whom have work experience related to their studies. This enriches the learning environment as students share real-world experience alongside theory. It also allows students to undertake part-time work during the day, within the regulations of the UK Government.

The College has been developing a wider range of scholarships in recent years. Malaysian students may apply for:

-Chevening Scholarships

-Commonwealth Scholarships

-World Citizen Talent Scholarships

-Career Experience Scholarships

-International Merit Scholarships (SE Asia)
