Middlesex University Dubai is the first overseas campus of the internationally renowned Middlesex University in London. The campus, which opened in January 2005, has over 2,500 students from over 90 nationalities and offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in a wide variety of subject areas. Middlesex University is a global university committed to meeting the needs and ambitions of a culturally and internationally diverse range of students, by providing challenging academic programmes underpinned by innovative research, scholarship and professional practice. We prepare our students to be professional, skilled individuals fitted for the modern world, committed to lifelong learning and able to contribute to the communities in which they live and work.
As well as having all the advantages associated with being a British university, Dubai campus students can benefit from all the opportunities afforded by a rapidly developing modern city in the heart of the Middle East, while experiencing the diverse nationalities and cultures that make up the population of Dubai. The Campus is located in Dubai Knowledge Village, occupying spacious classrooms and study areas within four buildings. Dubai Knowledge Village itself was set up in 2003 for international institutions that promote learning. Middlesex University Dubai students therefore have the opportunity to participate in a much wider student community.

The teachers were good and understanding the work rate was easy to understand Made friends quickly with the course Health and social science has the best teachers within criminology and sociology and the best Dean of that school who is very kind and understandable
The teachers on my course were very friendly, informed and generally great people. The relationship between the teaching staff and students was very relaxed and casual, and as a result I always felt comfortable discussing any problems or difficulties I was facing. The staff really are the saving grace of this uni, it’s a shame they work there. They could easily set up their own school with the knowledge they have.Chynna November, 2015

I went to Middlesex for my third year having studied at another University for the first two years of my degree .. On reflection My previous Uni had good facilities but well the teaching staff were rude, un-approachable and very generally not very nice..On starting uni I was very confident on leaving my first uni my confidence and self esteem had been badly affected. My previous uni may of been higher in the uni league tables but in my opinion Middlesex should be higher by far. So different to Middlesex.. The staff at middlesex are approachable, helpful, extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Without there expertise I would not have finished the degree. The uni help desk does what it says `Helps` and is excellent. Middlesex has helped me succeed, rebuilt my confidence, self-esteem and belief in human nature. I would highly recommend Middlesex University… Well done and Thank-you to all the staffJohn Right November, 2015
