Student benefits

Being an MDX student means plenty of benefits await you.

Join one of our many societies or set up your own. We also have sports teams, liberation groups and communities for you to get involved with.

Regardless of what course you’re on, and what year of study, there’ll be a Student Voice Leader to address any concerns you may have, academic or otherwise.

We know that being a student isn't cheap. That's why you'll get a TOTUM card, providing you with tons of discounts on food, music, entertainment and books.

Come on! Let's make the most out of being #TeamMDX

  • Societies and clubs

We have over 100 student groups and societies from cultural and religious groups to academic and general interest. You're bound to meet like-minded people, develop your skills, and be part of a community on campus, all while having fun.

Join as many societies as you like or start your own. We can help you with:

  • Space on campus to hold meetings and events
  • Financial support and fundraising guidance
  • Promotional support, including a dedicated webpage on our site
  • Guidance on how to be a successful society and grow your membership

Liberation Groups

Our Liberation Groups are for students who often face discrimination and under-representation at university and in wider society.

We currently oversee four Liberation Groups:

These groups help students share their experiences, advocate for change and find their supportive networks on campus. To join, you must self-identify into a specific group.

To join a group, set up your own or for more information, please email us and visit the MDXSU website.

Student Voice Leaders

Your Student Voice Leader is an elected student who represents your year or your course, and gathers feedback from you and your fellow students on any issues you've encountered or ideas you have.

This is a chance for you to have a say in how both your course and your university is run, from timetabling to the cost of food; anything that affects you as a student.

They will address your views to the programme leaders of your course at the Boards of Studies meetings and termly campus-wide Student Voice Conferences with other Student Voice Leaders.

Five benefits to becoming a Student Voice Leader

1. You can make major policy decisions which directly improve your course and your school/faculty

2. You receive professional training that will boost your employability and confidence as a leader. You'll have access to a 'build your own leadership' programme, with compulsory Student Leader skills and additional extras that include campaigns, problem solving, persuasive writing, debating, public speaking, and assertiveness

3. You're entitled to represent your course-mates by voting on policy at termly Student Voice Conferences hosted by your Students' Union. Here, you'll receive training, and debate on wider higher education issues

4. You can build a network of people on similar courses at School Policy meetings and learn to be effective in coalition-building and leadership

5. You have power to create positive change that will make a genuine contribution to the Middlesex community.

Elections to nominate yourself to become a Student Voice Leader are held at the start of the year - either October or January, depending on when your course starts. Every student is welcome to take part in Elections, whether by standing for election or voting for their preferred choice.
