Over the coming few months, Middlesex University will be making a transition to the use of a new logo. The ‘new’ logo (already in use for Degrees), will gradually replace the current logo with the infinity symbol. The new logo shows the crest of Middlesex County (now part of Greater London) with the ‘coats of arms’ which were attributed by the mediaeval heralds to the Kingdoms of the Anglo-Saxon Heptarchy. The Middlesex County crest is symbolic of Middlesex University’s heritage, dating back to the late 19th Century.
Middlesex was established as a University in 1992. It is now widely regarded as an excellent international provider of higher education with an outstanding academic credential and highly employable and successful graduates.
The history of Middlesex University began in the late 1880s, when two educational institutions opened their doors in north London – St Katherine’s College and the Hornsey School of Arts and Crafts. Both would become part of Middlesex Polytechnic, which was founded in 1973. Middlesex was awarded the title ‘University’ – by Royal Assent – in 1992.
