Student charter

We're committed to our students' success

At Middlesex, our staff, students and Students' Union work in partnership. We have a shared commitment to build a community that supports our students to transform their potential into success. This Charter sets out the characteristics of that community.

Our shared responsibilities

The Charter sets out how we work together to deliver an exceptional student experience through inspiring teaching and impactful research. You can find more comprehensive information in our policies and procedures.

We make sure the Charter stays relevant through bi-annual review – both by the University’s Academic Board and the Student Union Voice Conference.
