The first phase of this new University app will support important everyday student activities currently available through myUniHub, such as reading your module notes within MyLearning, accessing your timetable, using your library account and utilising your free eTextbooks. You will also be able to view campus maps and see pc availability.
The new app will make it much easier for you to access these core student systems on the go, giving you more choice over when and where you study.
Representatives from the Students’ Union (MDXSU) have been closely involved in making the case for this app, showing how it could improve the experience for all Middlesex students. They will continue to be closely involved in its introduction and development.
An MDXSU spokesperson said:
"We are thrilled to have been working with the university to secure this new app for students. This will enhance the experience for everyone at Middlesex and is something that students have told us that they need to help improve their learning experience. Middlesex Students’ Union exists to represent student views, and the idea of having an app has been discussed by Student Voice Leaders, submitted through our Ideas for Change platform and been a key feature of Student Officer manifestos. We are therefore delighted that this app is being launched, and will continue to work with the university to help students get more out of their time at Middlesex.”
In the future, students will also be able to get involved in creating new functionality within the app for other students to enjoy; ensuring that the app stays relevant and fits Middlesex’s ‘Student first’ approach.
Vice Chancellor, Tim Blackman, said:
“Middlesex University is dedicated to its partnership with students, providing outstanding support and helping you succeed. After giving us clear feedback that you want to be able to access your key student information whenever and wherever you want, I’m proud to be able to respond to that. I hope the app will enhance your learning experience and help in achieving your potential.”
We will soon be setting up focus groups and beta testing to guide the introduction of the new app. If you are interested in supporting the introduction of the new mobile app through these upcoming sessions, please register your interest.
