Middlesex University

London, England, United Kingdom
We have invested more than £200 million in recent years to transform Middlesex into one of London's biggest and best universities. A brand-new library, state-of-the-art biomedical and technology labs, dedicated classrooms and lecture theatres for business and law, high-end TV production studios and the best art and design workshop spaces are just some of the facilities that Middlesex students have available to them.



For more than 130 years, we've been home to great minds with determined and unwavering ambition to improve our world through teaching, learning and research.

A growing community of research excellence Middlesex has a strong research culture that values and encourages research and professional practice from all parts of the academic community, including early careers researchers.

Over the past few years, Middlesex has made a major investment in its research capacity by recruiting over 200 academic staff, including many Professors and Readers; individuals who are renowned in their fields and who further strengthen the platform on which our research and professional practice capabilities are built.


At Middlesex University our specialist postgraduate courses never remain static, but are continually modified and enhanced to ensure that you are taught the very latest academic theory as well as the most current professional practice.

You will be led by academic staff whose experience spans globally recognized research and leading roles in key areas of industry; tutors who see Higher Education as a place directly connected to the real world of enterprise and endeavor.
