    Undergraduate application

    Start your life-changing journey to university – we've got all the information you need to apply for undergraduate and foundation courses.

    • How to apply

      • Application basics

        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.

        There is still time for you to apply for a course starting in September 2015. The deadline for art and design courses at Middlesex University is 6pm on 24th March 2015. For other undergraduate degrees and foundation courses please refer to the UCAS deadline for applications for the remainder of the year.

        If you are applying for a part-time course or to start in January, then you will need to apply directly to the University, using our PDF application form.

        If you are an international student you can choose to either apply through UCAS; apply directly to your nearest regional office using our PDF application form; or apply through one of our trusted educational consultants in your country.

      • Entry requirements

        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. Click here to see 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.

      • Academic credit for previous study (transfer students)
        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. More on transfer students.
      • Mature applicants
        Middlesex University welcomes applications from mature applicants. Mature applicants will normally have had a significant break in studies and will be considered on an individual basis. Where individuals have been out of formal education for a number of years or need to develop their subject knowledge further, we recommend studying an Access to HE Diploma. We may also invite you to an interview to assess your knowledge.
      • Deferred entry

        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)
        - Nursing
        - Midwifery
        - Primary education
        - Social work

      • International students

        If you are from outside the UK you can choose to either apply through UCAS; apply directly to your nearest regional office using our PDF application form; 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. Click here to see 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.

      • Your offer

        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.

      • 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 our regional offices directly with any queries.
