Thinking about going back to uni before those tuition fee hikes kick in? Middlesex University in London has a January intake for both undergraduate and postgraduate study.
The university enjoys a strong academic pedigree and it boasts three Queen's anniversary prizes. Comprising four campuses in north London: the flagship Campus in Hendon, one at leafy Trent Park and nearby Cat Hill and the specialist health campus at Archway four campuses it recently spent £180 million to redevelop Hendon, with a new centre for Art, Design and Media opening in September 2011.
It offers a huge range of undergraduate courses ranging from Computing to Fashion, Music to Social Work, and Psychology to Nursing. On top of this, Middlesex University also offers a host of postgraduate courses and is a leading provider of Tourism Management and Media among many. Professional bodies also accredit many of their postgraduate courses and the University ensures their courses match the needs of potential employers.
The university has a history of impressive achievements among its students. Recently, film-makers from Middlesex University had their work showcased at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival and photography students won a place to show their work at the National Portrait Gallery (pictured). The establishment prides itself as many graduates have found work with some of the leading international corporations.
And of course, Middlesex University offers its students a host of sports facilities and opportunities to socialise on campus when they are not buried in their books.
