Postgrad courses at Middlesex University
If you’re thinking about postgraduate study then you'll be considering which institutions offer the best opportunities.
Here’s an in-depth look at what’s on offer at Middlesex University, which has recently announced its new roll of postgraduate courses.
The university has designed postgraduate study subjects to suit those wanting to enter the business arena, via employment or starting their own business from scratch.

Firstly, why study a postgraduate qualification?
Those considering a public or private sector career could benefit from postgraduate study. Many businesses ask for professional qualifications on job applications. Future entrepreneurs can use the skills acquired to stand out in the competitive small-business arena.
Many Studies have shown that postgraduates can earn up to 30% more than undergraduates on average. A report by Prospects.co.uk, for example, revealed that female postgraduates earn around 34% more than females with a first degree and that males earn on average 20% more.
The postgraduate courses on offer at Middlesex include subjects that could see students become experts in specific business sectors
Is Middlesex postgraduate study for you?
Middlesex is an internationally-recognised university with excellent prospects. Campus-based but in the City of London its range of postgraduate courses can help UK graduates secure top starting salaries.
Employers recognise the talent of Middlesex graduates, with the institution beating many other universities in securing employment for its postgrads in what is a tough job market. And their tailored business postgraduate courses will help students fine-tune their expertise to secure a role in their dream sector.
The university welcomes a diverse student body with its state-of-the-art facilities, the result of a recent £180m refurbishment. Students can attend one of the three North London campuses in Hendon or Trent Park.
Postgraduate students need not have studied an undergraduate degree at Middlesex to take on Masters degree study, and can still take advantage of the cutting edge of technology on offer.
Which courses would suit future entrepreneurs?
The postgraduate courses on offer at Middlesex include traditional business subjects such as law, economics and marketing, but also more vocational disciplines such as human resources management, tourism and hospitality management – courses which could see students become experts in those sectors after qualification.
A financial management MSc is also available, offering students without prior accounting or finance qualifications the chance to gain the financial tools needed for operational and corporate affairs.
Most courses are between one and two years in duration and the university offers full- and part-time study options, allowing students to work at the same time as studying, if necessary. Some courses can also begin in January instead of the traditional September start date, enabling postgrads to save for any course prior to starting it.
Speaking of funding, this is often a worry when deciding whether to enter postgraduate education. Middlesex offers attendees flexible payment plans, so they can pay for their study in equal instalments, minimising financial anxiety.
Postgraduate courses can be funded in a variety of ways, from bursaries to bank loans. For further information on funding postgraduate study, DirectGov offers excellent advice.
How do I find out more?
Prospects.co.uk, the popular education website, says postgraduate degrees offer employees “wide access to professionals” encouraging networking opportunities. Middlesex postgrads will be able to show employers that they have time management, presentation, critical thinking and teamwork skills.
