Middlesex University

Middlesex University 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, scholarship and professional practice.

Middlesex University is one of the largest universities in the UK. It teaches more international students than any other UK university. As well as offering a wide and flexible range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, it is also the world leader in Work Based Learning and has major contracts with the NHS and the TTA to train nurses, midwives and teachers.

Innovation and enterprise at Middlesex has been widely recognised. The University is the recipient of three Queen's Anniversary Prizes for Higher and Further Education for Work Based Learning, Technology Education and the Flood Hazard Research Centre. In 2003 it gained the highly prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise for international trade. In winning such an award, Middlesex was judged 'by a thorough and demanding process to be, quite simply, among the best of UK companies'.

Programmes and Modules (Courses)

Middlesex teaches most of its degree programmes via year long modules worth 30 Middlesex credits (15 ECTS). Students are entitled to take 120 Middlesex credits (60 ECTS, 32 US Credit Hours) in a year (with a limit of 60 Middlesex credits at post graduate level). The university encourages students to choose to follow one degree programme. This provides the student with a coherent programme and avoids the risk of timetable clashes.

There are a very limited number of modules available for single semester exchanges. Students may only apply for a single semester visit if they wish to study in one of the following areas:

  • Fine Art (note that applicants for Undergraduate Fine Art may ONLY apply for an exchange in Semester 2)
  • Politics
  • Development
  • Dance (open to selected partners only)
  • Nursing (open to selected partners only)

*Note: Because Middlesex has multiple campuses, courses of differing programs may not be offered at the same campus. Please check the Middlesex University webpages to see that you take modules from the same campus.

Please choose your modules very carefully as you may not be allowed to change them after the start of term.

Personal Statement:
* Make sure that this includes the name of your university and the name of the degree programme you are following there, as well as your current year of study (E.g. University of Cordoba, BA Translation, 2nd year).
*List the name of the programme you wish to follow at Middlesex, which year of that programme, and the modules that you will follow. These are listed at UG courses & PG courses.
*A student may choose modules (courses) from different programmes but students are to be advised that this may present problems. A student might not be accepted into classes outside of their subject area and there may be a timetable clash that prevents a student from taking his/her first 4 choices. For this reason, we ask students to please list two more modules than they think they need, in the event that their first choices are not approved or not available to them.
We strongly advise students to choose a single programme, and note that changing modules at the start of the year may be difficult.
