      Academic Experience

      All courses are very different, of course. Mine is one in the media department. Sometimes we have a lot of seminars and lectures but then for weeks we might have a lot of independent work. This, however, does not mean you go for weeks without seeing your tutor! At all times we can get the support we need or face-to-face tutorials. The tutors are very flexible with this. There are practically no exams included in our course as a great portion of what we do is practical works combined with essays, often self-evaluating essays as well. Each student has a blog which works as a learning diary. The facilities we need for the coursework are sometimes hard to access. The equipment loan store is operated poorly and nobody knows exactly what sort of things are available for us to take out. Middlesex has all these big, expensive equipment and facilities but they do not promote it so that you kind of stumble upon knowledge of these things every once in a while. Nonetheless overall it's a good course, and most of the media department people are very friendly and helpful.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
