Our Vice-Chancellor Professor Nic Beech would like to warmly welcome our new research students to Middlesex, to our MDX family and to our Research Community.
We have two induction sessions during the academic year depending when you start your course; September or January.
We highly recommend you take advantage of your induction as you'll have the opportunity to meet our support services, speak to our library team and be introduced to key faculty staff members.
The induction day for January starters was held on Thursday, 14th January 2021. This year Induction was delivered virtually and it was relevant for students studying one of the following disciplines:
MPhil/PhD, MPhil/PhD by Public Works, MA/MSc by Research, ArtsM/ArtsD, MProf/DProf (SVP)
See below for more details on the schedule and available material.
Starting a research degree is an exciting yet daunting task. We want to ensure your journey with us is a positive experience and we would like to ask you to spend a few minutes and fill in the pre-arrival survey. You will have the opportunity to let us know more about yourself and your expectations and we will use this information to assist you in your studies.
Help us improve by giving us your feedback here.
