However, our expert team are still available to answer questions and offer support via online web chat.

Please use our Resources tab below for help on a range of topics such as career pathways, applying to university, and personal statement advice. We also have a number of CPD resources for teachers and careers teams.

Teachers and advisors

Our Education Liaison and Outreach team provides information, advice and activities for prospective students and their parents, guardians and teachers. We work to raise awareness of higher education, focusing in particular on life at Middlesex University.

How we can help you

We offer support to students who will soon be applying to university, as well as working to raise aspirations amongst younger students, especially those poorly represented in higher education. We also assist international students in the UK through presentations on a wide variety of subjects, including choosing a course, applying through UCAS and finance.

Our team runs events through the year on campus. We are also happy to support you on site in your own school activities. Whether that involves arranging for a student ambassador to talk to pupils or running activities in a careers or university-themed day.

Explore our sections below for a wealth of useful information on finance, applying, events, and information about Middlesex University as well as downloadable resources for your students.

Chat to us about Clearing and career choices!

If you’re a student looking ahead at your career options and want to choose the right course through Clearing, or if you’re a teacher looking for advice, our team can help. Join the Live Chat on weekdays, 9am – 3pm
