    Your impact

    Ever wondered what we do with your feedback?

    #SVLwins

    At the start of each academic year, all students will elect a Student Voice Leader to represent their year of their course. These elected student representatives will then attend Programme Voice Groups.

    It’s important to raise any issues or feedback that you have with your Student Voice Leader, so that they can accurately represent your views to academic staff. You can find out who your Student Voice Leader is by logging in to the MDXSU website.

    • Your ideas in action

    Changes to employability support

    Our employability service, MDXworks has increased capacity and resources within the team to provide enhanced 1:1 tailored support.

    They have also increased their presence with scheduled workshops within each programme of study and continued the development of our co-curricular menu of activities such as the introduction of the Emerging Professional Programme.

    The Employability Service are introducing flexible, work-based activities that will include short intensive internships and experience days to help those of you concerned about taking on placements with your other commitments and responsibilities.

    Changes to learning and teaching

    All undergraduate students now have a named personal tutor who will guide you through your academic studies and help you to use all of the resources within the university to reach your potential. There are scheduled meetings for you and your personal tutor which may be within a tutor group or one to one setting.

    We are currently producing a condensed and accessible guide that will provide all the resources and support available to help you with your learning.

    Changes to the Library

    Study spaces

    Over the summer, we installed more single person study spaces in the Law Wing (the Cubbis) and improved a number of the study desks on the third floor. Both types of furniture are padded with sound absorbing material to help keep the silent study areas silent.

    Wellbeing library

    There is now a special collection of books on wellbeing available on the ground floor of Sheppard Library.

    Book suggestions

    Use the book suggestion form to tell us what’s missing or what you’d like more of.

    Linkedin Learning

    Over the summer Lynda.com became Linkedin Learning. This is a collection of hundreds of courses you can take for free covering practical tasks like using Word or Excel, how to use specialist software like SPSS, programming languages like Python and advice on giving presentations, interview guidance, and business and marketing skills.

    This is free to use and you can sign up via myUniHub > My Study > My Library > Databases and then go to L for Linkedin Learning.

    Any courses you complete can be set to appear in your Linkedin profile, so potential employers can see your value added expertise.

    Accessing journals

    If we don’t have journal papers in our collection we can get them for you thanks to our Inter Library Loan service and the British Library. You get PDFs by email which normally take 2-3 working days to reach you. Please note there is a charge of £3.00 per request for taught course students.

    When you're on site at another University, you can also use Eduroam via their wifi to access My Learning and library resources at Middlesex.

    Changes to IT support and learning resources

    Many of you asked for faster computers with a better battery life and over the summer of 2019, we replaced 237 machines and upgraded the hard-drives of our current machines to improve the speed performance.

    Our new Apps Anywhere system means that you can now access 101 different packages on all campus computers and laptops for loan without having to be in certain labs or rooms on campus.

    We've also introduced a number of additional indoor and outdoor seating spaces around campus to give you more places to study in groups or relax. These include indoor benches in the College, Williams and Grove buildings, seating with tables in the College Building and Hatchcroft, and outdoor picnic and park benches, and meeting pods.

    Changes to timetabling

    We've made important changes around timetabling following on from your feedback. Your timetable is now published in advance of a new academic year so you can plan your schedule better and, once published, the timetables are changed less frequently.

    You're also able to access your timetable through both the MDXapp and myUniHub and if any changes are made you'll receive an email alert letting you know

    Changes to wellbeing support

    We've introduced HealthMatters@MDX, a wellbeing messaging platform for undergraduate students where you can receive weekly support via Facebook messenger. These messages can be tailored to you and will coincide with where you are in your student journey.

    Starting from September 2019, we've introduced Meningitis and MMR vaccinations on campus.

    In the Sheppard Library, the HealthMattersHub is now a space where you can get all the up to date leaflets and information around wellbeing and mental health

    Changes to catering on campus

    Many of you wanted more dietary variety to the options available on campus and in MDX House our vegetarian menu is now also vegan-friendly. Vegan pastries are now available in the Quad, Ritterman, the Circle Café and the Grove and four of our outlets in MDX house have Halal and Kosher options. Our smaller outlets also have Halal and Kosher sandwiches.

    We're planning to reduce your overall costs by 10% across our cafés, restaurants and hospitality provisions and are introducing pre-ordering systems to reduce queues, so you can get your food quicker.

    We're running monthly events on the benefits of healthy cooking. These events will be supported by recipe cards and helpful cooking tips to get you cooking fresh and healthy meals

    • Changes to fees and funding

      For the second year running, we're offering a five part instalment plan and a prompt payment discount to our UK/EU Undergraduate students.

      We've also upgraded our processes so you can deal with an individual adviser from the beginning to the end of your query.

    • Changes to transport links

      We're introducing a pilot shuttle bus between Allianz Park and the Hendon campus which will come into operation later this term.
