Journalism & Foreign Language (Japanese), BA-Full Time 3 years course is extremely good and can recommend for everyone, although it seems that not every teacher is as good and as amazingly fun as my Journalism teachers and Japanese teacher. I hear that some friends get teachers that aren't really qualified for some of their courses and are a bit boring.
Teaching was very mixed, some excellent professors and some truly abysmal ones. Service for distance learning is very, very poor as no use of any modern technology just live videotaping of the lecture including breaks, interruptions and everything. It to some unexplained technical issue it took months for me to get access to course materials by which point I was behind in the course and, like another commentator, just sent round in circles every time I tried to fix the situation. Evening study is a great opportunity but frankly I wish more universities did it so that those who need it don't get stuck with Birkbeck!!
Overall, quite disappointing. There is a great lack of organisation and support, which can significantly affect one's performance over their first year of university. Most of the time, I felt like I was left completely alone: criteria for assessment remained mostly unclear, what lecturers actually required always changed and, of most importance, some of them were not even qualified - it is enough to mention Foundations of Modern Psychology lecturer (NB: core module!) used to start by saying "Guys, I am not familiar with the topic so I can sum it up but you'll have to look it up yourselves.... haha!". There were 2 lecturers - consequently 2 modules - who were absolutely amazing in everything they did, which allowed me to enhance my knowledge and actually learn something over the year and am thankful for this. Eventually, some of my marks were reduced due to moderators revising past exams: the sole explanation given to me was "it is an academic decision and no one can influence it".
