Chosen the course or courses you'd like to apply for? Made sure you understand our general entry requirements as well as any subject-specific requirements? Then congratulations: you're ready to apply to Middlesex University.
Most undergraduate applications are made via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). This also relates to mature students and applications to transfer to Middlesex University. You'll need our UCAS institution code to complete the form: M80. Each course also has its own UCAS code – you'll find these on our course pages or on the UCAS website.
The first deadline for applications for September 2015 is 6pm on 15th January 2015. There's a later deadline for art and design courses at Middlesex University: 6pm on 24th March 2015. You can still apply to us after these deadlines, but please note that popular courses may not have any spaces left.
If you are a student from outside the UK you can choose to either:
Our experienced regional teams have experience working with students in your country, and can guide you through the application process and answer any questions you may have. Contact your nearest regional office.
Academic credit for previous study
If you have achieved a Foundation Degree, CertHE, DipHE, HNC, HND or a number of modules of an undergraduate degree course at another university, Middlesex University may be able to offer you the opportunity to enter directly into the second or third year of one of our undergraduate degree courses.

Exceptions to UCAS
You'll need to follow a different process if you're:
We usually make offers on the basis of application forms. An unconditional offer means we'll take you with your current qualifications; a conditional offer means your place depends on certain conditions, such as getting particular exam grades or English language results. UCAS will let you know exactly what these conditions are.
In some cases, we'll ask you to submit a portfolio, or attend a test, interview or audition in addition to your application form. These include:
We reserve the right to request more information in relation to an application and may refuse to consider candidates if this request is not complied with.
If you are an international student not based in the UK, you can submit your portfolio or audition digitally and we can conduct interviews via Skype.
All applicants who have received offers without having visited us for a test, interview or audition are invited to an 'Applicant Day' to meet staff and students at their base campus.
Checking your progress
You can track your application on the UCAS website. If you can't find the information you need there, or if you've applied directly to us, our admissions office will be happy to help. Please call 020 8411 5555 and have your Middlesex student ID to hand.
If you're an international student who has applied directly to a regional office, please contact them with any queries.
