About Middlesex University Dubai

About the University

Middlesex University Dubai is the first overseas campus of the internationally renowned Middlesex University in London. The campus which opened in January 2005, has over 2,800 students from over 90 nationalities and offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in a wide variety of subject areas. The origins of Middlesex University date back to 1878 and it is one of only a handful UK universities to have been awarded three Queen's anniversary prizes

Our Future

Middlesex aims to be a global university and build on its outstanding reputation as an international provider of quality higher education.

Middlesex is a major recruiter of international students – to its London campuses and to its campus in Dubai. More than twenty permanently staffed offices all over the world help prospective students with every aspect of their higher education planning and application.

Middlesex also works in partnership with some of the most prestigious international universities and other educational providers. Middlesex programmes are taught in more than 100 institutions the world over. Middlesex also validates the quality of other institutions’ programmes.

Over the next decade the University intends to open more Middlesex campuses outside the UK and continue to develop and provide – by working in partnership – outstanding higher education.

Quality and Recognition

Middlesex University’s quality credentials are outstanding. Middlesex University is audited by the UK’s Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education and the Dubai campus is an integral part of this audit process. Our Dubai campus is subject to the same rigorous quality assurance procedures that have earned Middlesex University the highest possible endorsement from the QAA.

Middlesex University Dubai is also licensed by the Dubai government’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). Furthermore, the University Quality Assurance International Board at KHDA reviews all programmes on offer in Dubai to ensure that the quality of programmes taught in Dubai are equivalent to those at the home campus in London.

Academic programmes in Dubai have the same validation and monitoring system as in London, with the same examinations taken simultaneously in both cities. The Honours and Masters degrees awarded to Dubai campus students are therefore identical to those achieved by students at the London campuses, and students can transfer between campuses if they wish.

Whether in London or Dubai, Middlesex University students are prepared for a significant role in the global economy.
