At Middlesex University, we prepare our students for career success. That means excellence in staff, teaching and research, and world-class facilities. This is why students from around the globe choose us – 140 different nationalities are represented at our London campuses alone. We've been nurturing talent for over 130 years. And we're still growing.
We've recently welcomed students from Portugal to study film, photography, graphic design, business management, and much more. All our courses are designed to give you the skills and knowledge you need for your career in today's global jobs market. That's why we also offer opportunities for internships, part-time work experience and international exchange programmes.
We also offer a range of short term study abroad opportunities - from a semester or summer to a whole year abroad. If you're studying with one of our partner institutions and meet the requirements, you may be able to join us for the third year of a selected undergraduate course and gain a BA degree while spending the year experiencing a new culture and making new friends in London.
Our European & Mediterranean Team offers a personalised service to students from Portugal, supporting you in your application to Middlesex, and answering any questions you have about our courses, entry requirements, student life and more.
We often visit schools, colleges and education fairs in Portugal. For a schedule of all our upcoming international visits see our international fairs page.
