Find out about our new unconditional offer scheme for 2018 applicants.
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 deadline for the majority of our courses is the 15 January 2018. For our Art & Design courses you have until the 24 March 2018 to apply.

We asked some current students to answer common questions about applying to UCAS and to share their tips on ways to make your application stand out.
If you are applying for a part-time or FDA course, the BA Learning and Teaching programmes, or wish to start in January, please use our online application system. You will be required to create an Applicant Portal account in order to use this. Once you have submitted your application you'll be able to track the progress of your application, upload supporting documents/portfolio/show-reel and make subsequent applications.
If you are an international student you can choose to either apply through UCAS; apply directly to your nearest regional office; or apply through one of our trusted educational consultants in your country.
Please make sure you understand our general entry requirements as well as any subject-specific requirements which are detailed on our course pages.
In some cases, we'll ask you to submit a portfolio, or attend a test, interview or audition in addition to your application form. View the list of courses requiring a portfolio, test, interview or audition. We may also invite you to an interview if you're a mature applicant without any formal qualifications.
Please also note that we may need to request more information in relation to your application. We will let you know if this is the case. If you do not reply to this, we may need to withdraw your application.
If you are an international student, you should visit your country information page to check the equivalent local qualifications we accept from your country. If you need to submit a portfolio or attend an audition/ interview but are not based in the UK, you can submit digitally or via Skype.
If you are not a national of a majority English speaking country and haven't completed a degree in English, you'll also need to check you meet our English language requirements. We also offer Pre-sessional English courses for students who need to improve their English level to study with us.
If you have achieved a qualification such as a foundation degree or HND, or have gained credit at another university, you may be able to enter a Middlesex University course in year two or three. For further information please visit our Transfer students page.
If you have relevant work experience, academic credit may be awarded towards your Middlesex University qualification. For further information please visit our Accreditation of Prior Learning page..
In general, we welcome applications from students who wish to apply for deferred entry or who would like to defer their existing offers to the next possible start date. The exceptions to this are:
- Dance (applicants must retain a high level of physical fitness to avoid injury while studying)
- Primary education
- Social work
If you are from outside the UK you can choose to either apply through UCAS; apply directly to your nearest regional office; or apply through one of our trusted educational consultants in your country.
We want to make your application process as easy as possible, so if you have questions at any stage please get in touch with our experienced regional teams or visit our country information pages for information specific to you, including the qualifications we accept from your country.
Please make sure you understand any subject-specific requirements which are detailed on our course pages. In some cases, we'll ask you to submit a portfolio, or attend a test, interview or audition in addition to your application form. View the list of courses requiring a portfolio, test, interview or audition.
If you are not a national of a majority English speaking country and haven't completed a degree in English, you'll also need to check you meet our English language requirements.
If you don't meet our entry/English language requirements you may be interested in one of our international preparation courses to help get you to the level needed to begin your degree.
If you have completed relevant prior study, you may be able to enter directly onto the second or third year of an undergraduate degree. This is often called a top-up or credit transfer.
Finally, visit our visas and immigration page to find out all you need to know about student visas.
If you applied via UCAS, then we will let you know via UCAS if we are able to make you an offer. 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.
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.
