Bishopsgate Institute is so much more than a venue that runs courses. We are a lively community of learners. Our passion for knowledge is written into our history and runs through the fabric of our building.
Though our building may currently be closed, our motto is “I never stop learning” and you can continue to develop your skills with us. As part of our autumn term, we’ve launched a selection of online courses, as well as in-person sessions. Browse these courses in our What's On section.

Our promise to you
Our programme offers students a high-quality learning experience at a reasonable price, delivered by skilled, knowledgeable tutors. Our Wellbeing and Fitness courses help you build your physical and mental resilience – but the Institute is nothing like a gym. We offer Performing Arts classes designed for beginners, but led by professional performers. A number of our courses give students the chance to explore our Special Collections and Archives, and interact with a wealth of material that is simply not available elsewhere. In general, and on our Languages courses in particular, our students learn in small classes, allowing genuine interaction between students and tutors.
Due to the nature of our historic building, some of our teaching spaces are only accessible via stairs. We always endeavour to make all reasonable adjustments, so everyone can attend and enjoy our courses and events. If you have particular requirements, email firstname.lastname@example.org
