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 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.
Please make sure you understand our general entry requirements as well as any subject-specific requirements which are detailed on our course pages.
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.

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.
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:
If you are a student from outside the UK you can choose to either apply through UCAS, following the process outlined above, or apply directly to your nearest regional office, using our PDF application form.
We accept a wide variety of international qualifications. To find out more about the requirements from your country, visit your country support page.
We encourage you to get in touch with one of our overseas regional offices. They have a full understanding of your qualifications and years of experience of guiding students from your country through the Middlesex application process.
In addition to academic entry requirements, Middlesex also requires all international students to evidence their competence in English language. Therefore, International students, whose first language is not English will normally be asked to provide evidence of their English language ability.
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. 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.
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.
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.
