Hello Pigeon,

My name is Ludovica and I am currently studying at Middlesex!
I did my bachelor here and I am doing a Masters

I am loving my time here, there is so much to get involved in: from sports, to societies, to jobs and volunteering opportunities.
The students union is very active so there are loads of way to make friends The freshers fair is the best time of the year to make friends, so make sure you join in!
In terms of the teaching, it is a good mix between theory and practice!
You will have assessments, exams and work placements


Do you have any other question?
I am happy to help!

Have a great day
Ludovica

The uni is dead, there’s nothing to do in this area, like barely anything, the uni experience is okayish at best, the accommodations are meh unless you staying at the ones at Wembley or staying home. I’d advise you go somewhere else tbh, like literally come to the area and uni and explore the place, it’s not that great. In my first year and I’m already thinking of transferring tbh

I actually do LLB Law at Middlesex Uni and I’m currently in my 2nd year! I think it’s great, personally I prefer coursework to exams and we have a lot of coursework opportunities, especially in the first year! I really enjoyed my first year and love my second too. I lived at halls first year and now I live in a house with some friends I met at uni, but if you are living out I’d choose the halls in Wembley.

I’m doing my first year at Middlesex but I’m transferring to Queen Mary for second year entry for the Economics and Finance course. I suggest you do the same thing and transfer in the second year.Honestly the uni is terrible:- most students don’t care about education - low ranking - campus is too small - no good activities nearby Pro:- they accept you with rubbish grades- free unlimited printing and second year students who help with work - they are lenient when marking your work You want to do a law degree? I guess it is important you go to a top uni since that’s a prestigious career.

Last year I did Foundation Year here and transferred to ‘better ranked uni for my first year. Honestly I do regret my transfer a bit because middlesex was great uni. Library is huge, facilities good, people are social and most of the teachers helpful and friendly. I really did enjoy my time in middlesex. I recommend this uni.
Oh and I forgot to add that printing and ebooks are free which is amazing and can save you a lot of money.

Hi Kaushik.nagwekar,

My name is Colin and I am a former student at Middlesex.

I enjoyed my time at Middlesex completely as there is so much to do and get involved in: from sports, to societies, to jobs and volunteering opportunities. Whatever your interest, or if you want to try something new like I did, Middlesex has it.

In terms of the teaching, it is employer focused throughout each course and each year and they want you to succeed and secure your ideal job upon graduation. There is a good mixture of lecture based theory and practical seminars or lab sessions depending on what you are studying. There are some really new and modern buildings as well.

It has a 24h library, free printing and free e-textbooks for each of your modules that you study as well as access to e-books, journals and specialist software depending on your course. Most lecturers put their slides and discussions online as well so you can refer to them later.

A lot of my class got jobs within 6 months of graduating and the employability service is there from the beginning to help you and you get employability support for life from them. You get the opportunities to work or gain experience while you study as well which is what employers tend to look for now. The Alumni Association is active as well and offers events throughout the year to help network or improve skills.

Hopefully that helps you.

If you have any questions or want more information, feel free to ask and I will be happy to help.

All the best

Colin

Hi Shreya,

Is this for the 15 month course or the 24 month course as the experience may be different for each one. The 15 month course has a 3 month industry placement while the 24 month course offers a 1 year placement.

The academics and the employability service MDXworks have industry links to help you secure a placement and help you through the process from CV, cover letter and interview. These are real world comapanies and you will have to go through an application process for jobs just like you would for other jobs. Because of this, you are free to choose an industry of your choice to apply to. As mentioned, we will help you throughout the process to help you secure a placement. While you are working, you will be paid a salary.

For careers, some graduates have gone into the following however this is not an exhastive list and you can find your own path based on what you like and your placement.
- Management Analyst
- Trade Manager
- International Management Consultant
- Import/Export Agent


You may be able to get a job with your placement firm but this is not guarenteed.

I'm more than happy to discuss this further with you, just let me know.

Colin

I attended Middlesex and completed my degree there. Got a 2.1 . But it was a horrible experience. Most of the university campuses have now closed down. They have shut down Ponders end campus, Cathill Campus, Bounds Green Campus, Trent Park Campus.

When I last checked on Google Maps, I saw that the Enfield campus looked derelict and fenced off.

A sign outside heralds it now as the "One Degree Academy". A google of this "academy" reveals that on last counting it had a total of 47 students, but it has a capacity for 2000. Oh dear

What is even sadder, is that this degree academy now only teaches the age range 4 to 19 year olds.
How apt it is that the institution here has reverted or regressed to teaching a degree to 4 year olds. And looks like it is going bust with such small numbers attending.

Most of the lecture blocks have been bulldozed and are now just mud. Google maps shows that the mud is a bland pale brown colour - even the mud is dull and bland..

If you apply to Middlesex, you will get a degree on a piece of paper, but a few years later, the place that issued it may be little more than a muddy car park or an infants school....It has the lowest credibility and the worst ambience imaginable.

My opinion is that this institution is just a money-making idea . Grab an ugly building, stuff it with foreign students, charge each one £30,000, discharge them, stuff in another bunch... charge them, discharge them, sell off campus to developers....move on

The area that Middlesex was based in was a violent area anyway. It could be described as "depressed". There was nothing uplifting about it. Bordering Walthamstowe - an acid throwing, moped gang hotspot.

Regarding the people. The university was taken over by the Socialist Workers in year one, who announced an occupation and barricaded off the entrances. During the three years that I was there, the Socialist Workers would regularly place posters around the university saying "Are all men potential rapists" . The staff did nothing to discourage this at all. So the people were just nasty. I mean really nasty....and ignorant. I only got through the experience by keeping to myself.

I would NEVER advise anyone to go to this university - or have anything to do with any of the people or staff from it. In my opinion, the place is almost demonic...I would go as far as to say that I think it is under some kind of curse.

Hi craigpp, we’re really concerned to read about the experience you’ve had here at Middlesex – of course we want our students to look back happily on their time at uni. It’d be helpful if you could share more with us on this so we can look into it for you, but also for the benefit of our current and future students – therefore, we’d encourage you to make your experience known through our official complaints procedure, which can be found here https://www.mdx.ac.uk/about-us/polic...icy-statements.

Thank you,
Maddie

Maddie, you can start by kicking out the socialist workers and rad feminist groups from your university. They spread hate everywhere, and make your university a very nasty place to be.

This may be a late reply.. stay with me. Middlesex University is a good place but not better than others in London! You will find amazing lecturers in the Science and Tech department and of course, you will also find the biased and unprofessional ones. They judge you based on your grades, never on your abilities. MDX needs to fix the issues with their own staff. Some staff members are not suitable for their roles. Take for example Unitemps, is the worst place to be in. Been there myself and all I can say is, such a sh** place. Look at the recent Google reviews of Middlesex University.

Library is great compared to other institutes, although you may smell weed every now and then. Cheerio
