Middlesex University, School of LawBy Asian Correspondent Feb 21, 2013 6:19PM UTC
Middlesex University is based in London, where it presides over an international network of more than 40,000 students. This is a highly diverse campus, with one out of three students hailing from one 140 different countries, setting the tone for a dynamic and enriching postgraduate experience.
The Middlesex School of Law operates through two departments – one devoted strictly to the study of law and a second that extends to cover criminology and sociology. The school’s commitment to research attracts a great deal of funding from prominent organisations including the British Academy, the EU, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
There is plenty motivating international students to seek postgraduate law credentials at Middlesex University, not least the high average salary commanded by MDX graduates. Furthermore, London is one of the world’s true international hubs. The networks developed and experience gained here serve as powerful career-starters.
The Middlesex University School of Law includes modules in Law, Criminology, Social Policy, International Relations and Politics. An extensive selection of postgraduate and research programmes is on offer, with 85 per cent of the school’s research deemed nationally or internationally significant by the latest research assessment exercise.
These are the main areas of study offered through the Middlesex School of Law:
Middlesex Law division emphasises practical skills development, which is delivered through a combination of exceptional student care, high-quality teaching and one-on-one mentoring. Students can pursue a graduate diploma in law or seek specialisation in areas such as Employment Law; International Business Law; Minorities, Rights and the Law; or Human Rights and Business.
An LLM at Middlesex University is one of the most prestigious law degrees in the world. Teaching staff are internationally well-regarded and published, and their collective range of expertise opens pathways to a variety of specialisations, including Employment Law; Minorities, Rights and the Law; International Business Law; and Legal Research.
All of the academic staff in Middlesex’s Criminology department are members of the Crime and Conflict Research Centre, through which they pursue pioneering research. Postgraduate students can pursue an MA in Criminology or specialise in Public Protection; Youth Justice, Community Safety and Applied Criminology; or Serious Crime Investigation. An MSc in Criminology with Forensic Psychology is also on offer.
Political and International Studies
Students pursuing credentials through this department can major in either International Relations or Global Governance and Public Policy. Postgraduate students are actively involved in research through the Social Policy and Flood Hazard research centres.
