Sometimes life can just get in the way of your studies and having fun can’t it?! We want you to have the best experience and get the best grades possible so whatever your circumstances MDXSU are, here to support you. If you’re a parent, trekking hours across London to get here, an international student living in England for the first time, starting a postgradraduate degree or returning to learning after a period away, we are here to represent you and help you find other people in the same boat, or bus, or plane (get it?)
Our community networks are here to make sure all students have the best university experience possible, helping students to find supportive and fun communities, and influence positive change on campus. We know you’re busy, so you can get involved as much or as little as you like, and throughout the year we’ll be putting on events and activities specifically for your community!
Join our communities to find other students who share your circumstances and work with MDXSU to make Middlesex University a more vibrant positive place to be, for everyone. There are five Communities Groups on campus, for International Students, Parent & Carer Students, Post-Grad Students, Commuter Students and Mature Students.
You can sign up to the any of our Student Communities Groups here to receive updates about events, campaigns & opportunities for you!

Living in a different country to study can be daunting experience.
...but it’s also a fantastic life opportunity. We at Middlesex Students’ Union (MDXSU) are here to support all international students; helping you settle in, find new friends and put on events or activities that celebrate your culture. Is there a national holiday, cultural celebration or religious festival you’d like to see on campus? Let us know and we can work with you to bring your culture to Middlesex! The international Students Network is open to any students without a British passport and/or paying international fees.

Mature students are anyone over 21 years old at the start of their Undergraduate degree and anyone over 25 years old at the start of their Postgraduate degree. The purpose of the network is to bring together mature students from all schools and courses to build relationships with one another and also to ensure your needs and concerns are represented through MDXSU.
