How to Apply
Full-time undergraduate students
You can apply online via UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). It is important that you complete all sections of the UCAS application form and provide details of all the qualifications you have completed to date, have attempted but not completed (e.g. previous study at another HE institution) and those you are currently studying. The first UCAS deadline for applications is the 15th January 2014 (6 pm). Art & Design applications for Middlesex can be submitted up to the 24th March 2014 (6 pm). You can still apply after these deadlines but please note that popular courses may not have any spaces left if you apply after the first UCAS deadlines.
Please note our UCAS institution code is M80. Each course also has its own UCAS code which you will find on our course pages or on the UCAS website.
If it is part-time study which interests you, then you should complete and send our direct application form to the Admissions Office (contact details can be found at the bottom of the form). Please remember to include copies of your transcripts and certificates.
As an international student, we encourage you to make contact 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 processes.

Academic credit for previous study
If you have achieved a Foundation Degree, CertHE, DipHE, 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.

The selection process
Many candidates are made conditional or unconditional offers on the basis of their application forms. However, you may be asked to submit a portfolio, attend a test, an interview or an audition if:
- This is a specific requirement of a particular course - click here to see the list of courses requiring a portfolio, test, interview or audition
- You are a mature, unqualified applicant not taking an access course
- You are on an access course with progression links to the University
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.
Note: The University reserves the right to request further information in relation to an application and may refuse to consider candidates if this request is not complied with.
Progress of applications
If you have applied via UCAS you can check UCAS track for progress of your application. If you can't find the information you need there, or have applied directly, you can contact our admissions office. Call 020 8411 5555 and have your Middlesex student ID to hand. If you are an international student who has applied directly to a regional office, please contact them.
In general, we welcome applications for deferred entry from candidates who wish to undertake a period of worthwhile activity before starting at Middlesex. The exceptions to this normall are:
- Dance (as applicants must retain a high level of physical fitness if they are to avoid injury while studying)
- Primary education
- Social work
