Middlesex is a historic county in southeast England. It is now entirely within the wider urbanised area of London. Its area is now also mostly within the ceremonial county of Greater London, with small sections in other neighbouring ceremonial counties. 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.

Situated less than half an hour up the Northern Line from central London’s Leicester Square, Hendon is a slice of real London that we’re proud to call home. From this friendly suburb you can easily travel throughout London, the UK and internationally, while avoiding all the stress of everyday city life. Hendon is a place where eating out is authentic, pubs are full of character, living is affordable and being a student is fun.

Only a few minutes’ walk from campus you’ll find a wide variety of shops where you can stock up on groceries and household goods. You’ll also be within walking distance of some of north-west London’s best food and entertainment, including Hendon Bagel Bakery and student favourite the Claddagh Ring, a popular Irish pub with regular open mic nights and quizzes. Or you can head over to Brent Street for a taste of international flavour in the diverse range of shops and cafes.


Choose your university and course

Before you choose

  • Talk to a careers/guidance adviser.
  • Visit www.ucas.com to get more information and compare the courses and universities that interest you. When you apply, you can select up to five choices.
  • Do a keyword search on UCAS – if there’s a specific course title or course combination you want to do, type it directly into the UCAS course finder engine.
  • Do your research carefully – check out university websites, as well as UCAS, so you get a real feel for the place.
  • Consider the course content and not just its title – English at one university is not the same as English at another university.
    Check the entry requirements – will you need specific subjects (including GCSEs) or work experience? Are you on track to achieve the grades you need?
  • Attend university open days – see our handy checklist for suggestions on things you could ask about. If you’re considering Anglia Ruskin, we’d love to see you at one of our undergraduate Open Days.
  • Get advice from friends, family and school staff – but don’t forget the ultimate choice is yours.
  • Try to get to a UCAS HE Fair where you can pick up prospectuses from lots of different universities and speak with their representatives.
  • Have you chosen courses with a range of entry requirements? Try to maximise your chances by making your ‘Insurance’ option a course with lower grade requirements than your ‘Firm’ choice.
  • Think about a range of universities with different entry requirements.
  • Above all you should be comfortable with your choices: it’s all about finding the ‘best fit’ for you.
