Welcome to Middlesex University! We are thrilled that you are considering studying with us. Studying abroad is a big decision which is why we have created this page to help you find out more about our courses, how to apply, and what student life is like in London.
We require one of the following for entry to most of our undergraduate courses:
Ecuadorian Senior Secondary School (Bachillerato) and completion of the International Baccalaureate Diploma
American High School diploma with SATs and Advanced Placement exams
Bachillerato and a recognised one-year foundation course
One year of college/university level study
Professional Diploma from a technical school (two years post-secondary in a specialised field of study)
Students who only have the Bachillerato can apply for our one-year International Foundation Programme – if you complete this successfully, you'll automatically progress to a Middlesex University degree course.
You may be considered for entry to years two or three of our undergraduate courses if you have completed a period of study at university. Please contact the Americas & Caribbean Regional Team for more details.
Postgraduate entry requirements
We usually require a good Licenciado/bachelors degree (four years or more) from a recognised institution in a subject relevant to your proposed postgraduate study. We generally expect you to have achieved at least 3.5 out of 5.0 or 7 where graded out of 10.
If you're a talented student, you may be eligible for either our Regional or International Merit Award, which rewards students with up to £2,000 towards course fees for all taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
We also have a limited number of £5,000 Academic Excellence Scholarship Awards available to North and South American students who have demonstrated high levels of academic excellence in their previous studies.
Visit our scholarships page for a list of all other Middlesex scholarships you may be eligible for.
How to apply
Students are only eligible to receive one scholarship award. The awards are for full undergraduate or postgraduate degree courses. Students must have applied to Middlesex and received an offer before they can apply for any of these scholarship awards.
At Middlesex, we want to recognize your heritage. Students from North and South America who have dual citizenship from an EU country are eligible for the EU Heritage Scholarship. This award allows students to pay EU fees rather than international fees for the full duration of the programme.
