Studying in autumn 2020 during coronavirus

Student support

We've got a support network to get you through any problems during your time at Middlesex

Academic support

We'll help you to develop the academic skills that you need to do well on your course.

As an undergraduate or foundation year student, you'll be matched with a Personal Tutor for tailored support related to your course. Your tutor will meet with you regularly and answer your questions throughout the year.

You can also join one-to-one tutorials or workshops to learn:

- Academic writing, English language, and communication

- Maths and numeracy including statistics.

Support for your learning

You’ll find Student Learning Assistants - experienced students from the years above - in your seminars, workshops and small group sessions. Their personal experience means they understand some of the challenges that you might face so they can help you to learn.

You can also get support at drop-ins and online from our Graduate Academic Assistants, who also studied your subject at Middlesex, and work alongside staff.

Library and IT support

  • Get expert advice from our helpdesk about things like searching for resources or how to use specialist software
  • Book onto training sessions and one-to-one tutorials to learn skills like referencing at an advanced level.

Our libraries, IT and study spaces

Our canine teaching assistants

Dogs Maisie and Winnie are here to support you as an integral part of our teaching team. They work with your department to find ways to help reduce your stress and anxiety. They might come to your classes or there are also weekly drop-in sessions where you say hello to them.

Difficulties with your studies

Sometimes there are things happening in your life outside university that make studying more difficult. Sometimes it’s your course that you find difficult.

Whatever your personal challenge, we have a special team who work with you. They'll help you progress to the next year of your course and go on to complete your degree successfully.

English support

You must be able to write and speak English to a high standard to study at Middlesex.

If you're not at that level yet, we’ll help you to improve with English language teaching before and during your course.

English language requirements

If you weren’t educated in an English speaking school then you'll need to show that you meet our English language requirements.

Improve your English before you start

Support during your course

You can continue to improve your English skills while you study with us with free workshops and one-to-one tutorials.

Disability support

If you've got a condition that affects how you can study, then our Disability and Dyslexia team is here to put support in place so you can do your best.

Care leavers and estranged students

Education can be a challenging experience without the support of a family network.

However, we're committed to providing support to students who are in care or estranged from their families.
