Middlesex University

London, England


Middlesex University London is a public university in Hendon, north west London, England. It is one of the post-1992 universities and is a member of the Million+ working group. The name of the University is taken from its location within the historic county boundaries of Middlesex. The university’s history can be traced back to 1878 when its founding institute, St Katherine’s College, was established in Tottenham as a teacher training college for women. Having merged with several other institutes, the university was consolidated in its current form in 1992.

Over 140 nationalities are represented at the university’s Hendon campus alone. The university also has campuses in Malta, Dubaiand Mauritius as well as a number of local offices across the globe. In 2012, the university re-structured its academic schools to faculties to align them more closely with the needs of the industry. Courses are delivered by the Faculty of Science and Technology, Faculty of Professional and Social Sciences, and the Faculty of the Arts and Creative Industries.

Middlesex was awarded Silver in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017 for the quality of its teaching, learning and outcomes for students, and was judged to have ‘consistently exceeded the rigorous national quality requirements for UK higher education.

The university has consolidated most of its activities onto the Hendon campus in London with all teaching located at Hendon from autumn 2013. All older campuses were closed – Bounds Green (2003), Tottenham (2005), Enfield (2008), Cat Hill (2011), Trent Park (2012), and Archway and Hospitals (2013) – while Hendon received substantial investment in facilities and infrastructure to accommodate new students and programmes.

Since 2004, the university has also been operating an overseas campus in Dubai and opened another one in Mauritius in October 2009. In September 2013, Middlesex opened its third international campus in Malta.

The university has a student body of around 19,000, in London and over 37,000 globally. The university has student exchange links with over 100 universities in 22 countries across Europe, the United States, and the world.
