Birkbeck, University of London
Birkbeck, University of London (formally, the University of London, Birkbeck College; informally, Birkbeck) is a public research university located in Bloomsbury, London, England and a constituent college of the federal University of London. Established in 1823 as the London Mechanics’ Institute by its founder, Sir George Birkbeck, and its supporters, Jeremy Bentham, J. C. Hobhouse and Henry Brougham, Birkbeck has been one of the few institutions to specialise in evening higher education.
It was established as an institution to allow working-class people to get access to higher education by teaching in the evening so they could work during the day. It was named after its founder Sir George Birkbeck. In contrast to similar universities at the time which had religious connections or were part-time establishments with low academic standards and few facilities (such as those at Oxford), Birkbeck was deliberately founded as full-time secular institution with high academic standards.
The first two students enrolled were Joseph Farringdon and Edward Wright who both graduated from their medical courses in 1833. The first female student was Matilda Waring who studied chemistry for three years before marrying William Lawes FRS. It was not until after World War II that women were allowed full-time admission.[19
