Before you arrive

How to prepare for your new life as a student at Middlesex in London.

Finance and money

It's important to think about how you will pay for your time at university before you come to London.

Get financial support

We offer scholarships and awards that can help with the costs of study whatever your background and experience.

If you're a student from the EU, you can apply for a grant or loan

If you're not from the EU, you'll need to support yourself financially during your course.

Finance for international students

Uni on a budget

Costs at university in London can be different from those in your home country so we can also help you to plan a budget.

You'll need to consider:

  • Tuition fees - these depend on your course, country of nationality, and residency
  • Accommodation - costs of halls of residence or private rented accommodation
  • Living costs - for food, entertainment, travel, and more.

The costs of university


Take out travel insurance and contents insurance before you arrive. It's best to take out insurance specifically aimed at students.

Healthcare options

You can decide to take out private medical insurance or to use the National Health Service (NHS) which is the UK's state health service.

If you are from Europe you will receive free medical care from the NHS. If you are from outside Europe you will receive free medical care as long as your course is longer than six months. You may need to pay a one-off surcharge to access NHS services as part of your visa application.

What to pack

You will need clothes and shoes for all seasons as the climate in the UK varies from 14-30 degrees in summer to 1-5 degrees in winter.

Essential things to bring

  • Clothing and shoes for all seasons
  • Comfortable walking shoes
  • An umbrella
  • Medications and any notes from your doctor
  • Electrical adaptors for a British 3-pin socket
  • Important documents and a photocopy/scan of plane tickets, passport, visa, birth certificate, and driving license if possible
  • Photos of family and friends, posters and pictures to make you feel at home
  • Important school work that could be useful in your studies
  • Bi-lingual dictionary
  • Towels and toiletries
  • Bed linen (if staying in private accommodation – this will be provided in halls).

Don't pack food, pans, or crockery. There are strict rules about importing food from abroad, and you can buy bulky items like pans and crockery very cheaply once you arrive.

In your hand luggage

  • Valid passport (plus visa) or national card if from EU
  • All correspondence from Middlesex, including unconditional offer letter and accommodation contract letter (if applicable)
  • Original documents needed for enrolment (eg. qualifications)
  • Evidence of funding for tuition fees and living costs, including sponsor letter (if applicable)
  • Enough money (in pounds sterling) for the first couple of weeks at University
  • Health certificates, including vaccination records, plus X-ray reports if necessary
  • Any insurance documents.
