Student Life and Surroundings
London's strength and success comes from its diversity and unique mix of cultures. The city is constantly changing - retaining a sense of tradition while also embracing the new. Middlesex University is proud to reflect these aspects of London; many of the universities students are Londoners, but we also attract students from all over the world.
While studying, you will benefit from world-class teaching facilities. In your spare time, you will have access to a wide range of modern leisure facilities including football fields, tennis courts, gym, cafes, bars and much more.
Student life in London is not just about your study – it’s about the friends you make and the time you spend exploring one of the most fascinating cities in the world. Middlesex University is only a short tube (subway) ride away from Central London with all its museums, galleries, theatres, and restaurants.
Cost of Attendance, Financial Aid, and Scholarships
As a partnership program, UW-Whitewater students are subject to Middlesex University tuition fees, which is a separate, individual expense that the student is responsible for paying directly to Middlesex University. As with all approved study abroad programs, UW-W financial aid can be used on this program. Eligible students are encouraged to apply for the Wisconsin Grant for Study Abroad, and UW-W and external study abroad scholarships are available.
Other fees for this program, such as the Global Experiences Application Fee and CISI international insurance, are billed to the student’s UW-W account. Other expenses are paid individually (e.g. living expenses) or to the host university (e.g. round trip flights, living expenses).
