Explore life on Earth with courses designed to develop your analytical skills in well-equipped research laboratories, and put them to work during field trips to destinations like Mauritius. Professional placements and industrial internships provide invaluable industry insight, while postgraduate students can fast-track their careers with a broad programme blending academic theory with professional practice.
One unique quality of my course is that labs are related to the real world. This helps us understand the purpose of the laboratory, and makes it easier to discuss.
BBC presenter and environmentalist Anita Rani spent a day in a Middlesex science lab with MDX staff, Leonardo Pantoja Munoz and Alejandra Gonzalez Baez, analysing different wet wipe samples (flushable and non-flushable) in order to assess their plastic content. The results of these experiments now feature as part of the BBC series War on Plastic which started on 10 June and is presented by Anita and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. The wet wipes and plastic element will be highlighted in the second episode on Monday 17 June.
