Information for parents

We're happy to provide advice to parents and guardians of prospective students, so you can support your child in their university applications.

Application process

If your child would like to apply for a full-time undergraduate course at Middlesex University, they must use the online University and Colleges Application System (UCAS).

This is the central application service for all UK higher education institutions. UCAS forwards applications to the relevant institutions, who then decide whether or not to offer places. The UCAS website has a comprehensive advice section especially for parents.

Completing the UCAS form

There are several sections to fill in, including personal details, educational qualifications with predicted grades, a reference, five university and course choices and the personal statement.

The personal statement helps your son or daughter stand out from other applicants. They need to explain why they want to do their course, why they want to attend university and why they're a good candidate. The personal statement can be up to 4,000 characters or 47 lines of text.

This is an excellent opportunity to highlight the skills they've developed through their experiences, be that in employment, education, recreation or gap year activities and travels.

Making an offer

In most cases, we make offers solely based on the application forms. These can be conditional offers (subject to achieving certain exam grades) or unconditional offers (all entry criteria have already been met). However, some of our departments may ask for a portfolio, test, interview or audition in order to make their decision.

Once your son or daughter has received all their offers, they must choose one firm and one insurance option, and, as a result, decline all other offers. It's a good idea to select an insurance choice with lower entry requirements or conditions than their firm choice.
