Staying safe 

We all have a responsibility to keep everyone on campus and in our local areas safe. Together with Middlesex University, we've put together a Community Agreement - puting safety measures in place to ensure that everyone's visit on campus is a safe one. 

When you are on campus, make sure you wear a face covering (unless you are exempt) and follow social distancing and one-way signage. For any other Covid-19 related issues, such as self-isloating, getting tested and what to do if you test positive, Click Here or get in touch by emailing COVID19MDX@mdx.ac.uk When you are not on campus, please follow and remain up-to-date with current government guidelines. Read the latest Government updates here

 

MDXSU Office & Welcome Desk 

Following Government guidelines, MDXSU's offices will remain closed, with all staff working remotely. Our staff team can be contacted via email from Monday to Friday 10am - 4pm, and available for calls and online meetings.  

Welcome Desk will also continue to work remotely and can be contacted by email on mdxsu@mdx.ac.uk, or put in a query on our Contact Us page.

Events 

For the time being, all of our events will take place online. Our virtual Welcome programme includes over 100 events across 4 weeks, helping you to meet new people, learn new skills and settle into student life. From meet & greets from our 80 Student Groups to virtual club nights, online cooking classes to virtual tours of London, we hope there's something for everyone! 

Browse all our events here and download our Welcome Guide to find out more about who we are and what we do. 

Student Groups 

Our societies, liberation groups and communities will continue to operate online, running both regular meetings and one-off events. Throughout Welcome, you can meet some of our student groups at Give It A Go sessions - your chance to try out as many groups as you like before you join!  

Once you’ve decided which student groups you’d like, you can join online for free! You will be added to that student group’s mailing list so you can stay up-to-date with upcoming activities. 

Can’t find a group for you? You can set up your own! All new student group leaders will receive online training, and support on running events and how to gain new members. 

For current student group leaders, full support and training is still available and you will continue to follow the online processes put in place over the Summer. For more information, visit The Committee Hub.   

Student Media 

Interested in journalism, podcasting or vlogging? MDXSU’s Student Media Newspaper (The Echo), Radio (MDX FM) and TV (SMTV) offers the training you need to create content from the comfort of your home - no previous experience or specialised equipment needed!  

Throughout Welcome, Student Media will be running regular Coffee & Create sessions where you can find out more about how you can get involved.

Advice and Support 

MDXSU's Advice Service will continue to provide appointments online via Skype or over the phone. If you wish to book an appointment, please contact studentadvice@mdx.ac.uk. Make sure to complete a consent form and Service Level Agreement ahead of your appointment.   

Student Voice Leaders

Student Voice Leaders will continue to work as normal and have become more important than ever, representing your views and presenting your feedback to those running your course. Due to the moving of teaching online 2nd and 3rd year SVLs were given the opportunity to automatically return. Training and PVGs will continue to be run online.  

Applications for vacant SVL roles are open now until 5pm on Wednesday 15th October. For more information and to apply, visit our elections page. If you have any questions regarding Student Voice Leaders, please contact studentvoice@mdx.ac.uk

Elections

To ensure all our elections continue to be fair and open to all students all our elections will be held online, with in-person activity and campaigning being suspended in our election regulations. This means that students who have access to campus do not have an unfair advantage against those who cannot access campus for various reasons.  

All our elections, along with information on how to run, vote or get involved can be found on our elections page. It’s not too late to put yourself forward to be a Student Voice Leader, NUS Delegate or member of Union Council! 

Community Placements & MDXSU Internships 

We are currently recruiting for 6 Community Placements working with organisations across Barnet and 6 Internships within MDXSU. Due to government guidelines, our Internships and most placements will be on a Work from Home basis, requiring you to interview, complete a right to work check and communicate with your supervisor online.  

Some Community Placements may take place face to face following government issued guidelines, but please check the job description for more information on the location of the role. If you have any concerns surrounding the equipment needed to complete a placement or internship, please apply but make a note of this on your application so we can ensure that you are provided with adequate support.
