We also offer professional short courses to boost your career.


Our ground breaking, innovative research looks for ways to make positive change in the world. Middlesex has a strong research culture and a community of academic staff who continue to strengthen our excellent platform for research.

Our academic community of active practitioners and committed researchers includes many leaders in their field.
