    Information for returning students

    14/08/2018

    What you need to do before returning

    Welcome back to all of our Middlesex students returning this autumn. Here is some information to make getting started again as easy as possible.

    Re-enrolment

    You can re-enrol from 3rd September 2018 via myUniHub. You must do this in order to access your teaching timetable.

    Student Funding

    If you are an undergraduate student and your fees are being paid by Student Finance England, you need to ensure you re-apply for funding online at gov.uk/studentfinance.

    Once you have completed your application, you will need to sign the declaration form and return this by post to them. It is advised you do this as soon as possible so your payment is not delayed

    More information about fees and payments can be found on UniHub.

    Improvements over the last year

    While you’ve been away…

    MDX won Fairtrade award 

    Middlesex University has been awarded for its commitment to supporting and using Fairtrade products. On 20th June 2018, Middlesex University became the first of 12 universities in the UK to receive a Fairtrade award under the new scheme criteria that was introduced in September 2017. The scheme was the result of a collaborative effort between the Fairtrade Foundation and the National Union of Students.

    Out of the 12 universities awarded, Middlesex was 1 of 5 that got the highest level award of 2 Stars, which is a fantastic achievement.

    New environmentally friendly printers 

    As part of our continued campus improvements, new printers were installed throughout July that are more environmentally friendly. These printers will continue to offer free printing for students.

    MDX International Student Advice Team launches Webinar to help International students with Tier 4 Visas 

    The International Student Advice team is excited to announce their first ever series of Tier 4 Visa Application Webinars. Their aim is to ensure you sail smoothly through your Middlesex University journey right from the initial stages. Each webinar will be wrapped up with an online Q&A session where you can chat to our friendly expert advisers who can help clear up any doubts and answer questions about your Tier 4 Visa Application.

    Exam Stress and Anxiety Sessions at Sunny Hill House gardens 

    The psychology department are pleased to announce the return of the exam stress and anxiety sessions at Sunnyhill House Garden to support students dealing with exam stress and anxiety. Full dates and times can be found here.

    Our committment to reduce plastic waste on campus 
    As part of our committement to reducing plastic waste across campus, we have added new water bottle refill stations for staff and students.

    Gradstock Festival for our final year students 

    If you are entering your final year of studies you won't want to miss our annual Gradstock Festival, an event specifically to help connect finalists with graduate employers and provide the skills you’ll need to secure future employment. 

    Chat with Us - now available on MDXapp 

    Chat with Us is now live on MDXapp - allowing you to ask questions even when you're off campus or generally on the go. With personalised features such as your timetable, grades and progress, online library account, email and MyLearning, MDXapp will help you to manage your day-to-day student life on and off campus.

    Are you interested in learning a second language in an informal, free and fun way? 

    The Language and Learning team at Middlesex University has put together an exciting new scheme based on the idea of connecting two people who speak different languages in order to enable them learn from one another. Learn more about the new Language and Culture Exchange scheme here.


    Drop-in student support sessions 

    Over the course of the last 12 months, a new daily drop-in service for students has been rolled out. Available Monday-Friday between 2pm and 3pm, it provides opportunity for students to get immediate support from a mental health advisor or counsellor. From this some students may be referred for further support and some are able to have their issues managed in one session.

    Increase in numbers of GAAs and SLAs 

    In the coming year we are increasing the numbers of our GAAs and SLAs, which will increase the peer support that you will have inside the classrooms.

    These improvements will ensure you can access the information you need where and when you want it – even when you’re off campus – to make the most of your time here at Middlesex.
