What we do

We get people ready for their future

We give our students skills for the future by teaching new ways of thinking, making and doing in a personalised way. We get them ready to follow their dreams and ambitions through a changing world.

We create change

We’re a campus university in London that makes a positive impact in our local community in Barnet and throughout the city. We support everyone - from our neighbours to local businesses - to share in the opportunities that university brings and to change things for the better.

We learn through doing

Students learn in a way that’s personal to them at Middlesex. They get real-life experience to put their knowledge into practice and develop advanced skills. Then they take their skills and experience and use them to learn throughout the rest of their lives.

Our approach to learning

Our strategy: Transforming potential into success

We take our students on journeys that transform their lives. We empower them with the tools and opportunities they need to achieve success in their future careers.

3. A vibrant student experience

4. A values-driven culture

5. Research that benefits our students
