Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where is Middlesex?
A: Middlesex is one of the 39 historic counties of England and historically covered a large portion of what is today London. The county contained the City of London and was dominated by it from a very early time until ultimately the county was entirely absorbed by the city. So in fact one could say that Middlesex is London. Today Middlesex is used informally as an area name and a few institutions, including Middlesex University, retain the name.

Q: Is Middlesex University a "new" university?
A: Yes and no. Middlesex University obtained its university status in 1992, before which time it was referred to as a Polytechnic. The history of the university can however be traced back to 1878 with the creation of St Katherine's College. Over a period of over 100 years several colleges and technical institutes have subsequently been absorbed into the university. So although the university is considered "new", it is in fact an institution with a long history.

Q: Is Middlesex University an official/public university?
A: Yes. Middlesex University is a public institution with no shareholders or owner directors, incorporated under the Education Reform Act of 1988.

Q: Is the MBA in Shipping & Logistics a recognised degree?
A: The MBA in Shipping & Logistics is a fully validated programme of Middlesex University and as such follows all relevant guidelines and regulations governing MBA degrees in the UK and Europe.

In 2011 the MBA in Shipping & Logistics was a finalist for a Times Higher Education Award, and the programme is recognised by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

Q: Will a degree from Middlesex University add value to me?
A: Absolutely! Past participants tell us that the degree has had a real impact on their lives. In a 2011 study by the Panthenon Group, Middlesex University was ranked 8th among UK universities for adding value for students, by consistently helping them to get well-paid jobs. Although that study focused on students in the UK, the university applies the same principles of focusing on employability, impact and real-world skills on all its programmes.

Q: Is Middlesex University accredited or verified by independent quality agencies?
A: Yes. Middlesex University is regularly inspected by the QAA - Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education. The most recent audit of collaborative programmes took place in 2011 and included the MBA in Shipping & Logistics. The outcome, whereby QAA put full confidence in the university, can be consulted online on www.qaa.org.uk. It is noteworthy that the audit report declared that: "The audit team regarded the care given to the validation of distance education programmes, which contributes significantly to the assurance of quality in such programmes, as a feature of good practice.

The Business School and the MBA in Shipping & Logistics are also recognized by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), and participants on the MBA qualify for student membership during their studies. Graduates of our MBA qualify for full membership.

Q: How big is Middlesex University?
A: Big. Middlesex University Business School is one of the largest Business Schools in the UK with over 6,500 students: 4,500 Undergraduates, 2,000 Postgraduates and 60 doctoral students with over 120 countries represented. The university as a whole serves over 31,000 students in London and through its campuses and partners abroad, including almost 1,000 students at its Dubai campus, opened in 2005.

Q: How is Middlesex University ranked in global university rankings?
A: It depends. Ranking tables are unofficial documents ususally prepared by journalists (not official accreditation bodies), have changing methodology and vary their criteria from year to year. It is not uncommon to see big differences in different rankings and even in the ranking from one year to another. Rankings are typically not a very good indicator of the quality of higher and executive education programs. Middlesex University has been ranked better in some rankings than other. Among the very positive results are:

  • The Social Science Research Network (SSRN) ranks Middlesex University Business School among the top 20 international business schools in the world, ahead of Oxford and Cambridge.
  • In The Times Higher Education Supplement of 17 November 2006, the University was ranked 2nd in an assessment of teaching quality in all English universities.
  • The latest institutional audit by the Quality Assurance Agency gave Middlesex the highest rating possible.

It is also worth noting that Middlesex University has been awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize three times and has also won the Queen's Award for Enterprise, most recently in 2010/11 – all very prestigious awards.
