Our Partnership with Middlesex University

In the United Kingdom, university status is conferred by Her Majesty’s Government on institutions which meet criteria laid down by the Government’s ‘Privy Council’. Middlesex University was formally accorded university status on the 29th March 1993.

The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) regulate all universities in the UK to ensure high-quality teaching, delivered to academic standards
that are recognised throughout the world. The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) is the official agency for the collection, analysis and dissemination of quantitative information about higher education.

Confirmation of the status of Middlesex University can be found on their respective websites:

— QAA       www.qaa.ac.uk
