Birkbeck Undergraduate certificate programmes are all taught at first year undergraduate level, level 4 for students wanting to gain an award and provide excellent preparation for a wide range of BSC degrees and related professional training and careers.

Courses are held in London and can be taken over 1-2 years.

Student feedback

These are some of the comments we have received from students studying with us:

"I was accepted on the BSC in Actuarial Sciences at CASS (City University)"

"I applied to Nottingham University to do Computing and Artificial Intelligence and now start my Degree this October"

I am now studying Engineering with Management and Entrepreneurship at City University London.

I got an offer from City and Queen Mary (for a Science Engineering degree)

"I got five offers and met them all. I am currently studying MEng Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Birmingham".

"I deeply regret with the time I spent at different colleges before Birkbeck. I went to Kingston University after gaining my Certificate and am now studying for a BEng (Hons) in Aerospace Engineering, Astronautics and Space Technology and Aeronautic Engineering".

"I'm now a full time student at the University of Hertfordshire studying Aerospace Engineering. I had so many offers when I applied for Engineering courses, thanks to the course I did at Birkbeck".

"I am currently studying MEng Material Science and Engineering at the University of Birmingham".

"The subjects I learned in Physics and Mathematics at Birkbeck were really helpful and it contributed to build the background for what I am learning right now - Petroleum Engineering and I'm having good progress so far. I am really enjoying the degree".

"Birkbeck also helped me acclimatise to sustained academic pressure, with regular deadlines for coursework as well as with the need to prepare for exams and write essays. All these elements have been invaluable in preparing me for my current full time course".

Prestigious Qualifications

All certificates are evening based and studied to first year undergraduate standard.

Students gain access to fully equipped laboratories for Physics and mathematics modules. In addition to the academic teaching, students are supported through out their studies by experienced tutors enabling them to progress from pre A-level/beginners to undergraduate level standard in their studies.
