    Basically, I'm thinking of applying to Birkbeck University for it's Journalism and media course. The modules look great, and I love the idea of the classes being in the night as well, because this gives me a chance to go out and get a job as I'm aware of how expensive it is to study in London.
    However, one thing that concerns me is the fact that there will be a lot more mature students there. I know this makes the university great for networking, but I do want to meet people around my age also. Can anyone, maybe someone who's attended/attending Birkbeck give me some advice?

    Aren't there any other university options you have? Birkbeck is a really low ranked university and i'm sure you can find a much better university?

    I agree with you! i am appyling for birkbeck as a back up and hopefully get into UCL or Kings, as my main aim is to be in central london. I THINK birkbeck is included in intercollegiate halls, so i am hoping that it would be possible to make friends with people of similar age there, as some of these halls are actually in really good locations.
    You are aware that Birkbeck is amongst the worlds premier research intensive Universities and part of UoL? http://www.topuniversities.com/unive...versity-london

    I have considered Birkbeck for Law, I found it to be okay. It is a good university for students who want to undertake a part-time work during the day.
    As to ranking, it is in the 1% of top Universities as far as I remember. However, I must say that University rankings are so wrong and people should not pay much attention to it, unless you are striving to apply to Oxbridge.
