Nominations for the Middlesex University Dubai Student Council 2021-2022 are open NOW!
What is the Student Council?
The Student Council is a student-elected committee, with one representative from each School, that represents the Middlesex University Dubai student community in areas impacted your education and the overall student 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.
