MDX Life Skills

What is MDX Life Skills?

MDX Life Skills is a series of virtual events for students aged 14-18. The events are focussed on topics that aren’t typically included in traditional educational contexts but are often equally as important throughout life.

We want participants to join us for a variety of sessions focussed on mental fitness and wellbeing, how to use/save money as a student, how to de-stress, and skills to excel in a work environment.

Watch our Life Skills: Journey into Industry series of videos. These bite-size videos featuring current Middlesex students will focus on 5 students from diverse backgrounds, giving an insight into their personal journey to University, and their hopes for the next chapter.
