We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences has been teaching part-time geology-related degrees by evening study in central London for over 70 years. We specialise in teaching students of all ages, whether straight from school or older students who are working, through to people who have retired. We have recently moved to new offices within Birkbeck main building on Malet St., but retain our research links with the Department of Earth Sciences at UCL. We share some teaching space with our UCL counterparts, who use the classrooms during the day. We also have dedicated teaching space within the Birkbeck main building.
- We offer courses at all levels, from certificates and undergraduate study right up to MPhil/PhD study.
- All of our courses are offered via part-time evening study, and many of our students work during the day and join us for our evening classes.
- In addition, we offer numerous weekend- and day-trips to locations across the UK.
