  • Your application

  • Important information

    • Academic and English language requirements

      If you have any questions about entry requirements and the suitability of your qualifications, please contact your regional team.

      As part of the current Student route (formerly tier 4) visa regime, prospective students face robust questions about their destination, limits on their ability to work and tighter rules on their English-language capability. Due to these constraints we are currently not accepting applicants from Nigeria to our Pre-Sessional and International Foundation programmes until further notice.

      Level of study

      Entry requirements

      Undergraduate - Year 1

      For entry to most undergraduate courses, you must have completed the WAEC plus a recognised university foundation year. You will need to provide originals of your WAEC and foundation results.

      If you have only completed WAEC you may be considered for our one-year International Foundation Programme. Students who successfully complete the one-year International Foundation at Middlesex will automatically progress onto a Middlesex degree.

      Undergraduate - Year 2 and 3

      If you have achieved a Foundation Degree, CertHE, DipHE, HNC, HND or a number of modules of an undergraduate degree course at another university, you may be able to enter directly into the second or third year of one of our undergraduate degree courses as a transfer student.

      We recognise qualifications from a range of awarding bodies including AptechABE and Edexcel.


      For most postgraduate courses, you must have completed a good Bachelor degree, equivalent to a British second class honours degree from a recognised university.

      Our MBA courses require at least two years of post-graduation work experience at management level, and in some cases a GMAT score of over 550 will also be required.

      You must also meet our standard English Language Requirements.
