Middlesex University

The School of Art and Design at Middlesex University is an exciting creative community, led by professional artists, designers and thinkers, who inspire and challenge our students in a friendly, inclusive and highly enjoyable artistic environment.

The facilities in the fashion and textiles workshops, housed within the School of Art and Design, attract some of the most promising clothing designers and makers to Middlesex University to study their craft. The workshops are equipped with industrial sewing machines and overlockers, state-of-the-art press and heat press equipment and a number of specialist machines for working with different fabrics using a range of techniques.

Fashion at Middlesex enjoys an international reputation for creative excellence. The programmes have strong fashion industry links and stage catwalk shows and events throughout the academic year culminating in the degree show in the centre of London. Their teaching staff are all active practitioners in the Fashion industry and cutting-edge design houses. Many of their students graduate to work for leading fashion houses or set up their own design companies in the UK and around the world.

Life in London

Middlesex London is a beautiful place to study. At its heart is the historic College building, centred around an expansive courtyard where students and staff can meet in a relaxed atmosphere. There are also many other open areas where you can socialise in exhibition spaces, cafes and parks.

And, at just a few stops on the Northern Line from the centre of town, you will have all that London has to offer at your fingertips. Middlesex also has campus in Dubai, Malta and Mauritius.

Tuition and Scholarship Information

Most UK/EU undergraduate students can get loans to cover their fees and, depending on your family's income, you might be entitled to more help from the government in the form of loans or grants. International students may also be able to access financial support from their government. The school recognises that this help is not enough for some students and we do not want anyone to be discouraged from studying with us because of their financial situation, click here to find out more about the options available.
