Originating in the late 1880s when two technical colleges opened their doors in north London, the institutitons were merged in 1973 to form the University’s predecessor Middlesex Polytechnic. Middlesex was awarded the title ‘University’ by Royal Assent in 1992. It has four campuses in London, Dubai, Malta and Mauritius.

The programmes taught in Dubai have the same validation and monitoring system as in London, with the same examinations taken simultaneously in both cities. Students are awarded their degree certificate from Middlesex University in the UK.
