Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We’re proud of our diversity

Middlesex is an open and welcoming community. We value difference because it allows us to explore new perspectives and experiences, learning more than we ever could alone. We believe this richness of diversity enhances the experience of every MDX student.

  • What you can expect from us

    We will provide you with a variety of new perspectives and experiences to explore.

    We will encourage you to share your story, giving you the skills and confidence to do so.

    We will acknowledge where barriers exist and act to ensure that equality, diversity, inclusion and justice are reflected within our ways of working.

    We will listen, seeking to both understand and respect the views of others.

  • What we expect from you

    We expect you to be open to learning from and with others. Treating each other with respect and supporting each other’s success is at the core of how we work together.

    We hope that you will challenge yourself to seek out new ideas, cultures and experiences.

    We hope that you will ultimately become champions for diversity; both within our #TeamMDX community and in the wider world.

Reporting >

We don't tolerate any form of discrimination, bullying, harassment, victimisation or any form of hate (including online). Find out more about how to report this kind of behaviour as well as support on your next steps.

Get involved

We have a number of different groups, networks, societies and initiatives that bring together our students around the topics of diversity, equality and inclusion.

These provide a space for students who face oppression and discrimination, whilst encouraging understanding, empathy and tolerance.

We encourage you to explore these groups:

Changing the Culture Initiative

The CCI has been collaborating with students, staff and community groups to shift attitudes, values and behaviours and help build a more inclusive, tolerant and safe university for all.

How we're championing equality

Athena SWAN Charter

We believe in the importance of equality across all protected characteristics.

That's why we have signed up to the Athena SWAN Charter to strengthen our gender equality.

In 2020/21, we will commence work on the Race Equality Charter as part of our continued commitment to advance representation, progression and success for all.

Stonewall Workplace Equality Index

The Stonewall Workplace Equality Index is the leading cross-sector benchmarking tool for employers to measure their progress on lesbian, gay, bi and trans inclusion in the workplace.

Earlier this year, Stonewall awarded MDX 95 points in its 2020 Index, which is a an encouraging improvement from our 2019 score of 93.5.

Race Equality Charter (REC)Race Equality Charter

We are a member of Advance HE's Race Equality Charter. Signing up to this charter demonstrates commitment to improving the representation, progression and success of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students within higher education.


In September 2022, Middlesex University film students produced a campaign film as part of the university’s work to tackle a rise in incidents of spiking.

  • Spiking can happen to anyone...
  • Spiking has long-lasting effects...
  • Spiking is removal of consent...
  • Spiking is illegal!

Black Lives Matter >

Now is the time to stand together. Now is the time to use our collective voices for change. We are all part of #TeamMDX and together we say #BlackLivesMatter.

How we’re supporting students’ wellbeing

We offer lots of support, activities and opportunities at MDX. If students have a specific support or wellbeing need, we can help identify the right service for them.
