  • Your application

A word from our students

At Middlesex, you’ll join a truly global community with students from 122 nationalities and campuses in London, Dubai and Mauritius.

We don’t think there is anywhere better to be an international student than Middlesex University but don’t take our word for it and hear from some of our international students about their experience at Middlesex.

  • 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.

      Level of study

      Entry requirements

      Undergraduate - Year 1

      You will need to have completed one of the following:

      • High School Diploma (Bachillerato) and International Baccalaureate Diploma
      • Bachillerato and a recognised one-year foundation course
      • One year of university studies at a recognised Colombian institution
      • American High School diploma with SATs and Advanced Placement exams
      • Professional Diploma from a technical school (two years post-secondary in a specialised field of study)

      Students with just the Bachillerato can be considered for the one-year International Foundation Programme. Students who take the International Foundation Year at Middlesex University will automatically progress onto a Middlesex degree course upon successful completion of the course.


      Applicants will be expected to hold a good licenciado/bachelor degree from a recognised institution.

      You must also meet our standard English Language Requirements. If you don't meet these or one of our other accepted tests, we offer a Pre-sessional English course.

    • Fees, funding and scholarships

      Middlesex scholarships and awards
