Rio 2016 silver medal winning boxer Joe Joyce, 31, features in the campaign and the former fine art student speaks glowingly about his time at Middlesex. He said: “When I was at Middlesex, I was juggling training to be an athlete with doing my degree and making my paintings.
“It was great having that opportunity to mix sport and art. Before I came here, I was like every other young person: struggling with what I wanted to do with my life. I was good at art and I was good at sport but Middlesex University helped me to find myself and my style".
