Campus Guide


Welcome to Middlesex University Dubai! It’s a great pleasure to welcome you to our campus. Making the decision to start university is an important milestone in your life, and we hope you’re excited to explore all the opportunities our incredible student experience has to offer you.

I hope you feel that you’re not only joining Middlesex University Dubai, but the much wider Middlesex family. As a truly global University with campuses in London and Mauritius, we’re committed to meeting the needs and ambitions of a culturally and internationally diverse range of students. I am proud that Middlesex University Dubai is a leading university of choice for students like you because we strive to put students first and focus our research on real-world challenges.

You’re joining Middlesex University’s oldest and largest overseas campus. Middlesex University Dubai was opened in 2005 with just 28 students. There are now over 4,000 students from over 118 countries studying in Dubai across two thriving campuses. I am proud to report that Middlesex University Dubai has been awarded a 5 Star rating in the 2022 KHDA Higher Education Classification developed in partnership with QS™.

Throughout your time here and even after you graduate, we’ll empower you to seize the opportunities you need to transform your potential into success! By offering a variety of extracurricular opportunities for you to engage with your chosen industry, we will help you improve your employability skills and ensure that you succeed in today’s highly competitive job market.

Your faculty will endeavour to ensure that you benefit from top-class academic delivery, discover your passions, take advantage of our outstanding student experience, build your industry network, and hone your talents inside and outside the classroom. 

Many of you may have come from other curricula or need to speak to someone about settling into university life. I encourage you to reach out to all your Student Support teams, such as the Centre for Academic Success and Careers and Employability Services, to get advice that is personal to you about how you can launch your dream career and develop your academic skills. 

Welcome to Team Middlesex. I wish you a fantastic year ahead, and we can’t wait to see all you achieve! We’re cheering you on every step of the way.
