Studying with us during coronavirus in 2021

Studying Computing and IT

Learning from the cutting edge

Middlesex University is a Cisco Local Academy and we are partnered with Arm, Opnet and Xilinx University, giving you the opportunity to earn industry-recognised certifications, including Cisco's CCNA and CCNP.

You'll have the chance to work in high-quality specialist digital and wireless laboratories, equipped with industry standard software, hardware and tools so you can work with cloud computing, processing and developmental resources.

  • Learn advanced skills for your career

    Computing is a growing careers sector with many roles available from Software Engineer to Systems Analyst.

    We take a practice-based approach using a variety of innovative learning activities and assessments so that you have hands-on experience of industry-standard practices and techniques before you enter the world of work.

    We welcome guest lecturers with professional backgrounds from both academia and industry to our lectures, expanding your learning opportunities, introducing you to new career paths and giving you the chance to interact with a variety of people from this sector.

  • We're back on campus for teaching

    Your timetable will be built around teaching time using our facilities on campus with online sessions for some activities where being virtual adds value. That means it’s not going to be like 2020 over again. We've combined the best of our pre-pandemic teaching with what's worked best for students while they've been learning at home.

    We’ve planned your learning so it has most benefit for you:

    • Lectures will be online for you to join live so you can interact with your tutors and ask questions. These will be recorded and sent to you so you can reference them later

    • You will have practical sessions available on campus and we are aiming to organise these so you have to travel to campus as little as possible

    • If you aren’t able to get to campus for any reason, we’re planning a hybrid delivery so you’ll have remote access to practical sessions and keep up with your fellow students.

Confidence building placements

We encourage you to take a year-long placement between your second and third years, as this gives you the chance to develop your skills in a professional setting and explore interests you’d like to pursue once you graduate.

We work with our partners to find the best placement for you, so that you can experience putting your skills to use in a real work setting. Our supervised placements give you the chance to develop and enhance your professional skills and qualities and practice autonomous learning, that will stand you in good stead throughout your career.

As well as being a fantastic experience, work placements are proven to increase your success on the job market after you graduate.

Evolving our teaching in the pandemic

We're designing our approach to teaching and learning for 2021 using student and staff feedback from the past year and evidence of what helped students learn best. This means we can incorporate some of the most successful innovations and new practices and make the most of your study time on campus and online.

Our team has risen to the occasion over the past year – supporting not only students, but research into the pandemic. Our graduates have been working on the front line, supporting the NHS through the crisis. We’re proud of the work we have done within our community and we are taking what we have learnt forward, to continue to offer you the best education and preparation possible.
