Middlesex University

1. Overview of the institution

The university grew out of merger between different schools and colleges in North London. The oldest and perhaps the most prominent was the Hornsey College of Art, founded in 1882. Other institutions included Ponders End Technical Institute (founded in 1901) and Hendon Technical Institute (founded in 1939). All three were amalgamated to form Middlesex Polytechnic in January 1973.

In 2012, the university re-structured its academic schools to align them more closely with the needs of industry. Courses at Middlesex are now delivered by the schools of Business, Law, Art and Design, Health and Education, Media and Performing Arts and Science and Technology, alongside the university Institute for Work Based Learning.

2. Location and facilities

Middlesex London offers students a first-class education in one of the world's truly great cities.

In recent years we have invested more than £200 million to transform the campus into a state-of-the-art centre for excellence, with facilities and equipment that rival those of the world's top universities.

Middlesex London is also a beautiful place to study. At its heart is the historic College building, centred around an expansive courtyard where students and staff can meet in a relaxed atmosphere. There are also many other open areas where you can socialise in exhibition spaces, cafes and parks.

And, at just a few stops on the Northern Line from the centre of town, you will have all that London has to offer at your fingertips.
