Studying at Birkbeck

Studying at Birkbeck

This section is here to signpost you to the services available in the College, and help you to navigate the new normal on a virtual campus.


Moodle is the online hub of College and course information, materials and resources. As well as having your course details and information in one space, you can also enrol in other fun modules to learn more about Birkbeck, including the Orientation module to introduce you to all that Birkbeck has to offer, and Learning Online 2020-21 to get you equipped to deal with online teaching. 

Plus, you can collaborate and set up groups with your course mates!

Access Moodle


Got an IT issue? Unsure how to access your course materials? Need support from Student Services? 

With pretty much any question involved in studying at Birkbeck, you can submit an ASK query through your My Birkbeck profile. Your query will be sent to the relevant department within Birkbeck, and you can log in to My Birkbeck to check on the status of you query. 



As part of the switch over to online study this term, Birkbeck College have been collating information to help you understand the different aspects and tools we will all be using. You can enrol in the free module Learning Online 2020-21 on Moodle to see tutorials on how to use platforms like Moodle and Panopto.

Learning Online 2020-21


The College is taking steps to ensure campus is as safe as possible, following government guidelines during the coronavirus outbreak. You can keep up to date with any changes and updates to the situation through the College's website.
