Welcome 202010 - Transition Programme - Ready for university

Pre-arrival survey

Starting university can be an exciting time. It can also feel challenging and be a worrying experience for learners of all ages and backgrounds.

To help us support you, we would like you to complete the following questionnaire.

Your responses will be shared with your Personal Tutor as part of our approach to understanding your needs and providing the right guidance to help you settle into university life.

Please note, you'll need your Student ID to complete the survey (this can be found in the subject line of any of the emails we send to you!).

Watch this webinar with Student Wellbeing Coordinator, Vanessa, and Lead Partner GP, Arun Notaney, from The Uni Doctor who’ll answer your questions on how you can register with a GP, why it’s so important, what vaccinations you should make sure you’re up to date with, what kinds of things your GP can support you with, and how to register for The Uni Doctor.

  • Introduction to PT scheme

    As a student of Middlesex you will have a personal tutor throughout your studies to ensure you are fully supported and help you to excel on your programme.

    Personal tutoring may be undertaken as a group tutorial or on a 1:1 basis with the intentions of guiding your study and development, highlighting opportunities available to you within the university and also signposting to necessary support and development services.

    Your role in personal tutoring is to be active in engaging with your tutor, seeking opportunities highlighted to you in order to make the most of your studies and time at Middlesex.

    Although tutoring sessions will be scheduled throughout the academic year, your personal tutor can also be your first point of call should you wish to discuss an aspect related to your programme or affecting your ability to study.

#TeamMDX - why culture and values are important to students

Being a student at MDX is so much more than your engagement in your taught degree programme. At MDX we embrace key principles of diversity, social justice, inclusion and equality. It is this very ‘community’ spirit at MDX that builds confidence, aspiration and career goal-setting – the reflection and articulation of your ‘story’ as a unique individual – capable of taking up your rightful place in the world of work.

Hear how as #TeamMDX we can support you in fully recognising your true value and worth to employers and how we are partnering with leading employers and organisations in providing pathways to graduate success for our MDX student community
