A five-star standard of education combined with innovation, creativity, and a student experience like no other!



Middlesex University Dubai is more than just a university. Its origins date back to 1878, when its founding institution, St Katherine's College, first opened its doors. Middlesex University was then established in 1973 - paving the way for its first overseas campus, Middlesex University Dubai, to open in 2005.

As a truly international university, students studying at Middlesex University Dubai join a worldwide student population of more than 40,000 students - with over 3,600 students and 111 nationalities represented at the Dubai campus alone. Its stellar reputation was further cemented when the university was recently awarded a 5-star rating from the KHDA, developed in partnership with QST; scoring five stars across: employability, internationalisation, research, facilities, happiness and wellbeing, and inclusiveness.

Over the years Middlesex University Dubai has received an array of awards and accolades in recognition of its outstanding programmes, teaching and learning and student experience. From being recognised as the 'Best Media Centre' at the Forbes Middle East Higher Education Awards 2019, and 'Best University 2019' at the Dubai Lynx Festival of Creativity - to 'University of the Year (UAE)' by iStudy Guide (UK), and 'Best University MENA' by The European.

The University's approach to the overall student experience is what makes it stand out from the crowd. Recognising that 'one size does not fit all', each student is treated as an individual from the moment they step onto the university's campus. Its staff and faculty are focused on ensuring that each student is able to pursue their passion in an environment that encourages them to develop their own identity both inside and outside of the classroom.

Students are provided with an abundance of opportunities to network with industry professionals, take part in off-campus learning experiences, and get involved with sports and social activities; as well as build the crucial soft-skills, theoretical and practical knowledge inside the classroom.  

Middlesex University Dubai offers an expansive portfolio of programmes, from the international foundation programme to psychology, computer engineering and IT, business management, accounting, film, digital media, graphic design and fashion design. It is also the first and only university in the region to offer a face-to-face LLB (British Qualifying Law Degree).

Students can opt to study LLB Honours Law (general) or specialise in international relations, commercial law, or the brand-new law with criminology. Those looking at postgraduate study can choose from programmes including human resource management and development, digital marketing, banking and finance, applied psychology, engineering management, data science, robotics, education, and LLM law; along with 11 MBA pathways.

Understanding that the goal of students is to pursue their dream career - Middlesex University Dubai places employability at its very core. Each programme is tailored and adapted to the demands of employers within an ever-changing and increasingly competitive job market. Students also receive career support throughout their studies - both through the dedicated Careers and Employability Service, and through significant industry exposure.

Gaining a quality UK degree is a differentiator for future success - and Middlesex University Dubai encourages students to find their place in the world - and make their mark on it.
