    About Us

    For nearly 140 years Middlesex University London and its predecessor institutions have been home to innovators and change-makers. We are a progressive London university that puts our students first and provides expert teaching informed by inspiring research and practice.

    We boast one of the most diverse, multinational and multicultural communities of students and staff of any university in the UK, with almost 19,400 students and 1,900 staff from 140 different countries based at our modern north London campus in Hendon alone. Middlesex University London generates more than £280 million a year for the Barnet economy, supporting some 3,800 local jobs.

    We work with employers to make sure that what our students learn is what employers need, and we strive to transform the lives of our students so that they have an excellent experience while they are with us, and a solid foundation for inspiring careers when they leave us.

    Recent achievements

    We are pleased to announce that we have moved up five places to 73rd in The Complete University Guide's annual ranking of UK universities which was published earlier this year. We are now ranked as the second highest modern university in London for the second year in a row after enjoying an 11 place climb in last year’s league table.

    This consistent rise has been aided by a further improvement in employability statistics for our recent graduates as we have also risen 11 places in this year’s Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide, from 85th to 74th. We are now the highest-ranked modern university in London and have seen an improvement in almost all measures this year, with a particularly strong performance in the Graduate Prospects measure.

    The number of Middlesex University graduates in employment/further study has risen for the third consecutive year to 91.1%. The results of the DLHE Survey 2015 further indicate that 74% of Middlesex graduates achieved a graduate level employment/further study outcome which is a very positive increase of 8% on the 2014 achievement (66%).
