Middlesex University London is a public university in Hendon, north-west London, England. It is one of the post-1992 universities and is a member of the Million+ working group. The name of the University is taken from its location within the historic county boundaries of Middlesex. The university's history can be traced back to 1878 when its founding institute, St Katharine’s College, was established in Tottenham as a teacher training college for women. Having merged with several other institutes, the university was consolidated in its current form in 1992.
More than 140 nationalities are represented at the university's Hendon campus alone. The university also has campuses in Malta, Dubai and Mauritius as well as a number of local offices across the globe. In 2012, the university re-structured its academic schools to faculties to align them more closely with the needs of industry. Courses are delivered by the Faculty of Science and Technology, Faculty of Professional and Social Sciences, and the Faculty of the Arts and Creative Industries.
Middlesex University was awarded Silver in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017 for the quality of its teaching, learning and outcomes for students, and was judged to have ‘consistently exceeded the rigorous national quality requirements for UK higher education.
For 140 years, Middlesex University has been based in North London. The university grew out of mergers between different schools and colleges in the area beginning in 1878 when St. Katherine's College, a female teacher training college, was created in Tottenham. It was joined by Hornsey College of Art, founded in 1882, Ponders End Technical Institute, founded in 1901, and Hendon Technical Institute, opened in 1939.
In 1973 these colleges and further institutions around North London formed Middlesex Polytechnic. In 1992 Middlesex University was established from Middlesex Polytechnic by Royal Assent as part of the Further and Higher Education Act. More institutions joined at this time as Middlesex expanded further.
From the 1990s, the university began to develop its international presence with their first overseas regional office in Kuala Lumpur. In 1995, a network of regional offices opened across Europe. In 2005, Middlesex opened its first overseas campus in Dubai followed by a campuses in Mauritius in 2009 and Malta in 2013. The university also has partnerships with other educational institutions around the world.
The university has now consolidated its many London campuses into one Hendon campus where it now accommodates all its London-based teaching.
The university has consolidated most of its activities onto the Hendon campus in London with all teaching located at Hendon from autumn 2013. All older campuses were closed – Bounds Green (2003), Tottenham (2005), Enfield (2008), Cat Hill (2011), Trent Park (2012), and Archway and Hospitals (2013) – while Hendon received substantial investment in facilities and infrastructure to accommodate new students and programmes.
Since 2004, the university has also been operating an overseas campus in Dubai and opened another one in Mauritius in October 2009. In September 2013, Middlesex opened its third international campus in Malta.
The university has a student body of around 19,000, in London and over 37,000 globally. The university has student exchange links with over 100 universities in 22 countries across Europe, the United States, and the world.
Until recently the number of students at the university has been declining fast, hitting a four-year low of 21,350 in the academic year of 2008–2009.The number of PG students fell 20% in four years (from over 6,000 graduates in 2005 to less than 5,000 in 2009), while the number of non-EU students were down by a third over the same period.In the academic year of 2009–2010, however, the number of students across all categories increased sharply. The trend continued the following year with particularly high increase in the number of students from the EU.
The university is divided into three faculties:
Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries-
The Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries is a practice-led environment with teaching underpinned by creativity and interdisciplinary study. Student facilities are industry-standard, and staff are engaged in consultancy and collaborative research in the arts and creative industries.

The Faculty of Professional and Social Sciences groups subjects from the Business School, Institute for Work Based Learning, School of Law, and School of Health and Education. With strong links with businesses and public sector bodies, the Faculty aims to provide real-world learning that prepares students to become 'change makers', and to both create and share their knowledge between the professional and academic worlds.
