Middlesex was established as a University in 1992. It is now widely regarded as an excellent international provider of higher education with an outstanding academic credential and highly employable and successful graduates.
The history of Middlesex University began in the late 1880s, when two educational institutions opened their doors in north London - St Katherine's College and the Hornsey School of Arts and Crafts. Both would become part of Middlesex Polytechnic, which was founded in 1973. Middlesex was awarded the title 'University' - by Royal Assent - in 1992.

At Middlesex, we prioritise first-year students who have made us their first choice university, and who are travelling the furthest distance to join us. Under this system, priority goes to full-year international students (from outside the EU). After this we try to accommodate UK and EU students who are based furthest away.
Students on our International Foundation Programme are guaranteed to be offered a room in halls, as long as we have received your completed application form and deposit by the application deadline. You will stay in Usher Halls adjacent to our Hendon campus.
