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.
