Academic and learning support

As a Middlesex University student, we are committed to providing you with the necessary information, guidance and support for all aspects of your academic study, offering both personal and practical solutions to help you through your time at university.

Whether you need help with writing a piece of coursework; choosing the best database to search; or want to start thinking about life after university, there is someone to help: 

Academic Writing

The Academic Writing Team can help you develop your writing, reading and communication skills generally, for life at university and beyond. You will sometimes see them in your degree programme working alongside your subject lecturers, and/or you can book yourself an individual consultation.
Please email the Academic Enrichment Coordinator - Faiza Umar at f.umar@mdx.ac for more information.

Employability Service

One of the most important things employers look for when they're hiring is employability skills – even more than a degree or class of degree. Our Employability Support service provides a whole range of services to help you develop these skills, gain vital work experience and secure your dream job.

One-to-one employability support available by phone, email or webcam includes help with completing a job application form; writing a covering letter; creating a compelling CV; preparing for an interview; developing presentation skills; and managing your online presence. We also offer tailored support to help you set up and grow your own business.

Library Support

Our Librarians and IT specialists are available to provide expert advice on choosing the right resources or software, learning how to use it, and evaluating your search results. We also offer training sessions and one-to-one support throughout the year on using our resources and on understanding referencing and plagiarism.

Student Learning Assistants

Student Learning Assistants are experienced students who know the typical academic issues students face in their studies. You will see them in lectures, seminars, workshops and small group sessions assisting you in your learning.
