We understand applying to university can be challenging for children and their parents, carers or guardians. On this page, you’ll find information and advice on how to help your child choose their university and course and make an application.
Things to consider:
Our campus is leafy, sustainable and safe, with unique spaces for study and socialising.

As a university graduate, your child will have brighter career prospects and greater earning potential.
At Middlesex, our career-focused courses give students the practical skills and confidence needed to stand out in the workplace. 93% of our students are in work or further study after they leave (Graduate Outcome 2022) and we are a top 20 university business leaders in the UK (Business Money 2023).
At Middlesex, we try to make studying affordable for as many people as possible through our cost of living fund and scholarships and awards, including our Excellence Scholarship worth £2000 per year.
Another important decision for your child to make is if they want to live at home, stay in university halls of residence, or rented accommodation. At Middlesex, we have student halls close to our campus in Hendon and in north west London. Your child can also search for private accommodation using Middlesexstudentpad to find local rooms, flats, and houses for rent.

A conditional offer means your child needs to achieve certain exam grades.
An unconditional offer means your child has met all entry requirements. Some courses might also ask for an interview, portfolio or audition.
If your child applies in January then they should choose their first choice or firm option and their back-up or insurance option in beginning to mid-May. Then they will decline all other offers.
It's a good idea to make an insurance choice that has lower entry requirements or conditions than their firm choice. Your child can also defer their entry to university for a year.
For data protection purposes, we must speak directly to students when they are making an application. That means you can’t talk to us on your child's behalf. There are other useful things you can do to help. Before they can make sure they have the following:
