Middlesex aims to be a global university, committed to meeting the needs and ambitions of a culturally and internationally diverse range of students by providing challenging academic programmes underpinned by innovative research and outstanding professional practice. Middlesex’s educational roots stretch back to the end of the 19th century when the first college opened its doors in 1878. Today Middlesex is one of the UK’s largest universities, with around 25,000 students located on three major London campuses and a further 5,000 students studying on Middlesex programmes in campuses around the globe.
Our academic programmes are offered within five Schools: Arts & Humanities, Health & Social Sciences; Education; Business and Computing Science. We are justly proud of our reputation and of the extensive range of our academic programmes. In 2005 Middlesex was awarded £6.5million for the creation of two national Centres for Excellence in Teaching & Learning from the Higher Education Funding Council for England. In 2003 the Quality Assurance Agency Institutional Audit gave Middlesex the highest rating possible. In the same year we won the Queen’s Award for Industry. The last 10 Quality Assurance Agency assessments resulted in ratings of ‘excellent’; and we gained top marks for Student Support & Guidance in the last 15 inspections. In addition, Middlesex University won three consecutive Queen’s Anniversary Prizes between 1996 and 2000.
Our student facilities include well-appointed study-bedrooms, most with en-suite shower and wc. All rooms have internet connection. Our lively student union offers a wide range of social activities to help students make new friends and meet others from around the world. If you take your sports seriously, our qualified instructors offer top-quality coaching. Middlesex sportspeople have competed successfully at regional, national and international levels.
We provide a learning environment in which students have the widest possible choice. You can take a “single honours” programme and study your chosen subject in depth, or you can take a “joint honours” programme which allows you to combine two subjects to meet your career needs; for example, Teaching English as a Foreign Language with Education Studies, or Sports Science with Health Studies, or Psychology with Criminology. The combinations are many and varied. Even at postgraduate level, students can take Joint Masters programmes in a range of different subject areas.
Middlesex also offers extensive exchange opportunities so that students can study their chosen subject in a different cultural context, for example Traditional Chinese Medicine in Beijing, or Management in New York. For those who prefer to remain at home, our London location promises exciting opportunities for work experience and a wide range of internships. These carefully supervised placements provide insights into the workplace and allow students to graduate with an academic degree and a semester or a year’s work experience for their resume. Postgraduate students can use a summer internship as the context for an applied research dissertation – and gain from invaluable practical experience.
Gaining maximum benefit from combining top-quality academic programmes with outstanding professional practice is our goal for every student who comes to Middlesex. We strive to graduate knowledgeable, highly skilled and motivated people who will go out into the world and really make a difference!
We look forward to hearing from you and assisting you with your study needs. Thank you for your interest in Middlesex University.
