Birkbeck University Student Recruitment

Birkbeck University is a unique institution. Set up nearly 200 years ago in central London it is the only university in the UK that teaches through evening classes alone.

Halo was asked to make a film to advertise the university’s postgraduate schools to prospective students. Set up originally to educate the working people of London, Birkbeck University has a special culture. Part of its attraction is the research led teaching students receive but also the diversity and range of the student body itself. A key focus is that people can undertake postgraduate study while in full time work.

The 8 minute film features lecturers and students and gives an insight into how the university operate, the way the teaching works and the value to the students who study there. We also made a 2 minute cut down film featuring only the students and showing why they chose Birkbeck in the first place.

The films are used on Birkbeck’s Youtube Page here:
