A word from our students

At Middlesex, you’ll join a truly global community with students from 122 nationalities and campuses in London, Dubai and Mauritius.

We don’t think there is anywhere better to be an international student than Middlesex University but don’t take our word for it and hear from some of our international students about their experience at Middlesex.

  • Important information

    • Academic and English language requirements

      Undergraduate entry requirements

      We require one of the following for entry to most of our undergraduate courses:

      • Ecuadorian Senior Secondary School (Bachillerato) and completion of the International Baccalaureate Diploma
      • American High School diploma with SATs and Advanced Placement exams
      • Bachillerato and a recognised one-year foundation course
      • One year of college/university-level study
      • Professional Diploma from a technical school (two years post-secondary in a specialised field of study)

      Students who only have the Bachillerato can apply for our one-year International Foundation Programme – if you complete this successfully, you'll automatically progress to a Middlesex University degree course.

      You must also satisfy our standard English language requirements.

      You may be considered for entry to years two or three of our undergraduate courses if you have completed a period of study at university. Please contact the Americas & Caribbean Regional Team for more details.

      Postgraduate entry requirements

      We usually require a good Licenciado/bachelor's degree (four years or more) from a recognised institution in a subject relevant to your proposed postgraduate study. We generally expect you to have achieved at least 3.5 out of 5.0 or 7 where graded out of 10.

      You must also satisfy our standard English language requirements.

      To find out about entry requirements for specific courses, or if you have any other postgraduate questions, please check our website or contact the Americas and Caribbean Regional Team.
