Teaching and research excellence

During 2017 the high quality of our teaching and research has been recognised in several awards and a continued rise in our position in university rankings. That's important to us because excellent teaching and research have a positive effect on our students' experience.

Award for quality in teaching

Middlesex University has been rewarded with a Silver for our high-quality teaching in the country's first Teaching Excellence Framework awards. This new government scheme looks at how well students are taught at universities across the UK.

We were commended for how we value and support teaching at Middlesex and our commitment to engaging our students in their teaching and learning experience. This has lead to high levels of student satisfaction that were also commended by the TEF panel.

Our rankings success

In the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide we became the highest-ranked modern university in London when we rose 11 places from 85th to 74th in the table.

We saw an improvement in almost all measures in the Times and Sunday Times guide, with a particularly strong performance in the graduate prospects measure. This ranking lists 128 universities on student satisfaction, research quality, entry standards, graduate prospects, good honours, completion, student-to-staff ratio as well as services and facilities spend.

Middlesex not only gives you the resources, opportunities and support academically but they also go above and beyond to make sure that as an individual you reach your full potential. - Shelley Griffin, MA International Relations Graduate

In The Compete University Guide, Middlesex is the second highest ranked modern university in London for the second year in a row. We are 73rd overall in the guide's annual ranking of UK universities.

The table is based on ten measures: student satisfaction, research quality, research intensity, entry standards, student: staff ratio; spending on academic services; spending on student facilities; good honours degrees; graduate prospects and completion.

Strong employability statistics

We have also seen continuing improvement in the employability prospects for our recent graduates.

The number of Middlesex University graduates in employment or further study has risen 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%).

I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to take a novel, creative approach to tasks and I feel that studying at Middlesex has fostered this trait. With every assignment, we are encouraged to critique literature and go beyond merely regurgitating content. – Shayen Louice, BSc Healthcare Science
