Studying at Middlesex University
Situated in the North of London, Middlesex University teaches over 40000 students at its campuses in London, Dubai and Mauritius, with around 21,000 at the London campuses. In London the two campuses are the Hendon Campus and the Archway Campus both of which are close to train and tube lines which can get you to the centre of London in around 30 minutes. All the courses at Middlesex University offer a tuition-fee free placement year in an aim to encourage work-based learning and increase employability in their students.
Hendon Campus, the busier campus of the two UK campuses, hosts the Business School, Engineering and Information Sciences, Biomedical Sciences and the Health and Social Sciences department. ‘The Fitness Pod’ is the Hendon sports club for students which also has a real tennis court, one of the few in the country. ‘The Sheppard Library’ is also found at this site. The University has spent £90 million on developing environmentally friendly buildings, including two sports science laboratories and a new art and design building. The Archway campus focuses mainly on nursing, midwifery, complementary health, sport science and social work.
The Students Union run the student radio station, MUD radio and also publish a magazine that students can receive for free six times per academic year, called MUD magazine. SWIRL is the students campaigning organisation to represent the students and Universities voice at a local and national level. The Union also provides plenty for students to get involved with in terms of clubs and societies from the film and television society to the Yoga society and other sports clubs. There are also plenty of volunteering opportunities for students to get involved with which culminates with the MUSU Star Awards Ceremony at the end of the year.
The campuses have their own selection of places to eat and drink, including pizza outlets and breakfast bars. The University holds quiz nights, nights out and end of year balls as well comedy nights and quiet nights in the bars and cafes. As well as campus life there is the opportunity to explore more of London whilst at Middlesex University. London is the place to go for shopping, including having some of the biggest stores in the world. There are plenty of sights to see including Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye and more places to eat and drink than you could fit into one academic year.

I had a great time at the uni and in classes. Staff are friendly and motivate you to work. Perhaps one thing that takes longer is getting some feedback on written coursework. Facilities and labs are second to none especially the networking labs all hands-on and lots of help provided. Food is a bit expensive but the High Road more than makes up for it. Lots of fast food restaurants about as well as nice places to sit and eat. I loved the place and if I ever want to study again I will go back, look nowhere else. james
Facilities O.k but University policy and staff attitude towards you is crippling and has had a disastrous effect on my future career. If you hand the work in late they refuse to mark it even though it's a large assignment, thereby making you fail the whole course. They outright refuse by saying its uni policy and they say the are treating you like an adult yet if any teacher or member of the staff hand in work late they still get paid either way. I have now lost a year and I am now in debt having paid the tuition fees in full, in effect I have paid their wages and yet they cannot even be bothered to mark my work, why ? because its an inconvenience to them. I had spoken to another department but they care even less quoting the uni policy.
Hello dear student and fellow on-coming students, I would like to share my experience with Middlesex university. I am at my last year here and since the beginning of my journey the teachers have been very unprofessional and the lectures are just very bad but of course there are 1 or 2 teachers whom are very good out of 10 teachers for example. Most teachers here are after their income, not to teach. Rather than helping you achieve the best they put you down and tell the students that they will fail. The education system here is rubbish, at all costs please avoid this university. I have been here for 3 years and have not learned a single thing. They expect you to know these things before hand and they will not teach you. Teachers here are not willing to teach. As they say its all about the 'MONEY'. If you are coming here to study Computer Engineering, Computer Science or Information Technology. Please choose another university and save your future.
Basically, the majority of people get accepted to some courses even without having a clue of what is going on. This results in 70 percent of people not even knowing what their course is, but they are "cool". The food place is crowded so it is not useful while rushing to another class. Especially in front of the exams, the university will hold many events that students are not invited to in the main building. Therefore they literally kick you out in front of your studies, put a security guard next to each door and not let you in - even though you pay for the school and are a student. Prices in the food stores are just insane, if you leave the campus, the prices go down about 50 percent. There are just so many people that don't have interest and they ruin the lessons for you as well.
Wifi can be pretty bad sometimes. The library is amazing; especially the timetable. The facilities for all courses are amazing ! The uni is clean and friendly and the campus is so beautiful especially at night. There are lots of great events organized by Student Union.
Not a lot I can fault the University on really, it has everything you need as a student! The student union is really helpful and offers lots of opportunities for other students to get involved and help! There is a good range of internet everywhere on campus. I think the only exception is one block of ladies toilets, however I'm sure this isn't a major problem for anyone:).
