Middlesex University Dubai: Unlock your potential and transform it into success


Middlesex University Dubai offers quality UK education alongside an unparalleled student experience in the heart of Dubai

The UAE is fast developing into an international education hub for students from across the globe, who are keen to shape their futures. Dubai, renowned for being at the forefront of pioneering business and economic growth, allows students to take advantage of increasing job opportunities in a range of dynamic areas.

When Middlesex University Dubai opened its doors over a decade ago, it had a key objective - to transform the education sector and offer outstanding academic programmes combined with a student experience unlike any other. In line with the country's strong leadership vision of the 'Education and Vision 2021', Middlesex University Dubai ?is a proud contributor, ?boasting a strong legacy of academic expertise.

The University delivers quality UK education to over 3,200 students from more than 100 different countries worldwide. In addition to its excellent academic curriculum, students are able to benefit from extra-curricular development through industry networking and partnerships with leading companies within the UAE, real-life work projects, field trips, placement opportunities, and a platform to discover, hone, and present their talent and passion. It also provides the option to transfer to the University's home campus in London (UK), to gain a real international student experience.

Through the University's diverse departments, students who choose to study at Middlesex University Dubai are able to choose from a broad spectrum of Undergraduate programmes including Business Management, Marketing, Accounting and Finance, Hospitality, Tourism, Law, Psychology, Journalism, Media, Graphic Design, Film, Computer Engineering, IT, and many more.

The University also offers Postgraduate programmes across areas such as Robotics, Hospitality and Events Management, Digital Marketing, Law, Banking and Finance, Applied Psychology, along with 11 MBA pathways. A strong emphasis is placed on practicality within all of these programmes - ensuring that graduates are 100 per cent employable and able to succeed in an ever-evolving and competitive job market.

The University has also launched nine new programmes available for those students enrolling for September 2019. Undergraduate programmes have been launched across Digital Media, Fashion Design, Education Studies, and Business Management with Supply Chain and Logistics. Graphic Design, Data Science, and MA Education focusing on Special Education Needs and Disability, are among the new Postgraduate programmes launched, along with two new MBA pathways: Project Management, and Healthcare Management.

"We strive to present a curriculum that will not only equip our students with knowledge, but also allow them to implement it in real life, making them an indispensable asset to any organisation, no matter what sector," said Dr. Cedwyn Fernandes, Pro Vice-Chancellor and Director of Middlesex University Dubai.

Middlesex University Dubai's quality credentials are continuously checked and audited by governing bodies in the UK and the UAE alike.

The UK's Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) subjects the University to the same quality assurance procedures that have earned Middlesex University London the highest possible advocacy from the QAA. It is also licensed by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).

Choosing a higher education destination can be both a nerve-wracking and life-changing experience. Students who are currently contemplating on selecting the perfect University for them can find Middlesex University Dubai at the Gulf Education and Training Exhibition (GETEX) between April 17 to 19 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) at Stand E300.

Kelven Shihai Zhang, a graduate of the Middlesex MBA and Vice-President of Far East Heng Fai Fašade (Zhuhai) Limited, reflected on his time at Middlesex University Dubai, stating: "It was a great journey; the programme was elaborative, interesting and practical to my work needs. Both the faculty and administrative staff ?were welcoming and helpful, and I gained so much more than I expected."

"After deciding that media was my choice of career, I wanted to seek out the best University in Dubai. The University provided me with the opportunity to meet and study alongside people of many different nationalities, cultures and beliefs, which in turn shaped my professional expertise and outlook," said Media alumna Dona Sebastian.
