Bring your passion and research expertise to join us us – as a research student, a researcher or a collaborator – and we’ll train and support you to transform the world with what you do. Your work will benefit from different perspectives and expertise that comes from being part of a lively community of researchers from across the University and beyond.
We collaborate with colleagues across our campuses in Dubai, Mauritius and Malta. Take for example Professor Richard Croucher, from our Business School, who is looking into a healthy working environment in Mauritius.
Our students visit other institutions worldwide for research exchanges, from University of Lisbon to University of Helsinki and University of Humboldt in Germany.
We welcome visiting academics like Professor Hans DeHaard, from Université de Franche-Comté, who works with our researchers on cancer immunology.
Our long-term partnerships with other higher education institutions have included 43 large funded research projects involved partnerships with more than one central London HEI since 2014 and international collaborations with researchers from 99 countries.
We collaborate on projects with industry like our long-standing partnership with Festo, who develop technology for education and helped build the Cyber Factory, a factory of the future so our students can develop skills they need for the jobs of the future.
We work with businesses and organisations in our local community too. The Centre for Enterprise and Economic Development Research supports local economic growth by consulting with Barnet Council on a strategy for developing local business.
We also work with companies large and small across the globe – from helping London technology startups to contributing fresh insights to the work of major corporations.
Middlesex academic Dr Neelam Raina leads The Value of Culture in Conflict, a research project to support female entrepreneurship in design in Pakistan. The project has enabled women to develop their craft practices to generate sustainable incomes through training, peer-to-peer learning and knowledge exchange with other practitioners. Working with a local organisation, this project takes an inclusive and locally-led approach to help alleviate poverty.
Progress your career – all early career researchers get membership of sector-wide networks such as VITAE and we’ll link you with career opportunities in the wider community.
Develop your skills – our Researcher Development Programme develops skills such as research methods, preparing a research presentation and information about intellectual property and patenting.
Build your network – our annual Research Students’ Conference is led by students and brings together people across the University to showcase their work and make connections, and we give access to other researcher career development networks in London and further afield.
Our campus in north London brings together bespoke spaces and high quality research equipment, in which we have invested significantly in recent years, across all disciplines to provide the research infrastructure you need for your work.
We’ve developed a robust set of policies that guide what we do. Your work will be governed by our Academic Board, supported by a professional central Research and Knowledge Transfer Office and specialist Faculty Research and Knowledge Transfer teams for your subject. Our Research Degrees Administration Team are there to provide support for research students and supervisors.
