    Academic Flexibility

    MDX recognizes the difficulty that students who are competing in sport at a high level experience when it comes to balancing the needs of training and academic study.
    The University offers numerous modes of study and is generally able to offer some flexibility in the delivery of the academic programme, to enable students to continue to train on an intensive basis. Any offer of flexibility  is discussed with MDX Sport Scholarship students on a case by case basis.

    GLL Sports Foundation Scholarships

    Middlesex University is working in partnership with Greenwich Leisure Ltd and specifically their Sports Foundation to provide numerous sports scholarships to our students. The scholarships provide a differential level of support which is determined by the level of achievement of the athlete. Support covers free access to facilities for training, and may include some direct financial support. The application process is separate to the University Scholarship scheme and applicants need to apply directly to the GLL Foundation. Applications are considered annually, with applications open from December to February each year.
    Information on the awards criteria and how to apply can be found on the GLL Foundation website. You can also contact Mel Parker, Head of Sport & Recreation, on 020 8411 5893 or via email.
