Read about some of the aspirational individuals who have turned their career goals into reality since graduating from Middlesex.
Alex was able to take many of the things he learned at Middlesex and apply it straight after he graduated. He made use of the support available outside of standard tutorial hours, such as help with his CV, interview preparation and general guidance from tutors, which he says played a major part in helping him get to where he is professionally.
Polly always knew she wanted to work with children and has since graduating pursued a career as a primary school teacher. She says:
“The Early Childhood Studies BA course has introduced me to ideas and practices from various disciplines. The course also enabled me to take part in a nursery-based placement and I enjoyed every minute of it! The course has made my desire to become a teacher even stronger and I've already been recommending Middlesex University to others.”
Katherine studied Primary Education BA and worked alongside trainee teachers from Middlesex. She says:
“I was really impressed with the structure of the course and the amount of contact time. I really enjoyed the relationships we had with our lecturers and I personally credit the interest that the lecturers took in ensuring that we graduated as successful teachers as a contributing factor to the success of the cohort.”
At Middlesex, we understand the importance of career support for life beyond university. That is why our award-winning career support service, MDX Works, is on hand to help you during and after your studies (for life).
