10 Reasons Why Middlesex University Dubai

1) Study a Quality UK Degree in the Heart of Dubai

All of our programmes have the same validation and monitoring system as those offered at our home campus in London, with the same examinations taken simultaneously in both cities. This means our students have the benefit of receiving their degree from the UK whilst being able to study in one of the most dynamic, vibrant and rapidly developing cities in the world.

2) A Student Experience with a Difference

Step out of your lectures and discover a student experience with a difference. Students can get involved in a wide range of sporting activities, explore new hobbies with our Student Social Clubs, as well as take part in field-trips, and both national and international competitions.

3) Experience a Truly Global University

Middlesex University Dubai has over 3,200 students from more than 100 nationalities, and has four campuses worldwide: Dubai, London, Malta and Mauritius. Our students are able to learn to work in a multicultural environment, and benefit from the insights and viewpoints of an internationally diverse range of students and faculty – an invaluable asset for any graduate.

4) Start Your Studies in Dubai with the Option to Transfer Overseas

We provide students with the opportunity to transfer their studies to one of our overseas campuses within their second year of study, enabling them to explore a new culture and build overseas contacts whilst benefiting from the same high quality teaching they would experience here.  

5) Innovative Teaching & Learning

The University has developed a strong research culture and many of our academic faculty have been recognised internationally as leaders in their fields, and have been appointed to editorial boards, executive boards of international organisations, and received prestigious research awards. Our students are able to benefit from opportunities to attend and participate at high profile research conferences, events and panels organised both on and off campus, and gain valuable industry contacts through the University’s connections.
