Studying in London offers fantastic cultural opportunities, but moreover, being close to London can do wonders for a graduate’s career prospects.
Middlesex University offers a phenomenal career foundation in a wide range of subjects, particularly Business, Design, Education, Law, and Health. Each of their courses have been developed to real and contemporary knowledge with a view to developing the student’s professional skills.
In addition, Middlesex’s postgraduate courses make use of industry-leading research that positively benefits society. Students here really do make a difference. This approach to learning means students develop their critical thinking, as well as industry knowledge, both necessary for a successful future career. Many of the postgraduate courses are accredited and the University works closely with potential employers to make sure the courses match their needs.
The university enjoys a strong academic pedigree and is the third highest-ranked modern university in London according to the Times and the Sunday Times Good University Guide. It is also one of the top 500 universities in the world in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
And for those that successfully graduate from Middlesex, there is no better place to begin their career. This is evidenced by the history of impressive achievements from Middlesex University’s students. Just recently, a Middlesex alumnus was announced as Artist of the Year, a national portrait competition hosted by Sky, with their art shown at the National Portrait Gallery. Another alumnus was nominated for five Olivier Awards. Graduates of Middlesex’s film courses have been showcased at the Cannes Film Festival, while Joe Joyce, former Middlesex University Fine Art student, medalled at the Olympics and is now a heavyweight champion boxer.
Further, Middlesex University has a long list of successful alumni, including politicians, artists, academics, businesspeople and journalists - many graduates have been employed with some of the world’s leading international corporations, including a Senior Marketer currently employed at Google.
Middlesex University’s primary location is its flagship north London campus in Hendon. In addition, Middlesex has campuses in Malta, Dubai and Mauritius. If the often cloudy London doesn’t necessarily appeal, then you can still achieve a British degree in a (ever so slightly) warmer locale.
The university serves over 25,000 students, with a strong international community - around 140 countries are represented.
