Think smart, study different this September 2021

Study online until travel restrictions ease

Your education and safety is our priority. With the global situation still challenging as a result of the pandemic, Middlesex University Dubai is offering the option for students to start or continue their university studies online and then transfer to on-campus classes in Dubai once the situation eases.

This applies to all incoming and current students in countries where travel to and from the UAE has been stopped, or students who do not yet wish to travel to Dubai due to health and safety concerns.

How can I study this September if I can’t travel to Dubai?

We will ensure that any student unable to travel to Dubai will be able to study virtually and experience the same amazing student experience. We will plan for our teaching to be safe, flexible and resilient, responsive to the effects of any international travel restrictions, and able to respond to any unpredictable local events (such as unexpected lockdowns).

Are your health and safety measures in line with UAE government regulations?

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has one of the most advanced vaccination programmes in the world. Our goal for 2021-22 is to provide our students with safe, in-person teaching at our Dubai Knowledge Park and Dubai International Academic City campuses and a high-quality online experience for any students studying remotely, in line with the UAE government’s latest guidance.

Can I benefit from the same student experience virtually as offered on campus?

We have been offering online and blended teaching and learning options to our students since the beginning of the pandemic, and we have all the provisions in place to meet your educational needs and help you engage and connect with your faculty and fellow students as you begin this important time in your life.

What study models can I choose from?

Choose from two study models in September 2021:


Blended Learning

Blended learning combines face-to-face instructions and online learning. Blended learning provides students and parents with the reassurance that they will have the faculty and class interactions as required yet ensuring that health and safety and student learning experience is not compromised.


Online Learning

The online learning approach enables students to enrol and continue to pursue their studies at Middlesex University Dubai without physically having to come to campus. The online learning experience is supported by our state-of-the-art online education support platforms. Online learning will be specifically available for those students who have health conditions, self-isolation and quarantine requirements, as well as overseas students who at this time are unable to travel overseas or who are concerned to travel.

Can I still join clubs and societies?

With our many virtual events and our 40+ clubs and societies currently conducting meetings online, our Student Activities team and club coordinators are ready and waiting help you feel part of the thriving Team Middlesex community before you arrive in Dubai.
