I loved Middlesex a lot, my time here was very inspiring and there was so much to do on campus and in town. You’re not too far from London, with Camden 15 minutes away on the tube which has some great student nights on during the week. There’s also loads of amazing societies and events on campus and I found getting involved incredibly rewarding, and the university was very welcoming to all of its students. The careers service also helped me find a wide range of employment during my course, and prepared me for the real world!

I love it here, fantastic for your course and lecturers know their shit! (Plus they can teach that shit just as well) highly recommend living in platt halls first year, (the accommodation 20 mins walk away) easy to get places as colindale station is 2 mins away and it's great for student nightlife. Everyone I've met loves it here.

Didn't like it...couldn't wait to finish uni and be away from there. Lecturers were biased and never actually taught anything. No support and no future career options/portfolio was ever made. All the work was pretty pointless.
