Nominations for the Middlesex University Dubai Student Council are now OPEN!
What is the Student Council?
The Middlesex University Dubai Student Council is a student elected council with representatives from each school of the University. The Student Council is designed to represent the student body in matters affecting education and the overall university experience. It aims to establish a recognised means of communication between the student body and members of staff and faculty, as well as external organisations.
Above all, it allows students to share their ideas, interests, and concerns with lecturers and other members of staff in order to improve the student experience.
When do registrations close?
Nominations will close on Thursday 22 October.
