Overview

Birkbeck University of London was established in 1823 by Dr George Birkbeck, who made it London?s first ever Mechanics? Institution dedicated to the education of working people. The first female students were admitted in 1830, and in 1866 it changed its name to the Birkbeck Literary and Scientific Institution. It became Birkbeck College in 1907, daytime classes were phased out in 1925, and a year later it received its Royal charter formally making it a university. In 1940, Birkbeck was the only university in London to stay open during the Blitz. It is now known as Birkbeck University of London, or more informally simply as Birkbeck.
