According to fresh data issued by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) for the 2021–2022 academic year, Middlesex University (MDX) Dubai has been identified as the largest university for total student enrolments for a second consecutive year. Currently, at MDX Dubai, more than 4,500 students are pursuing UK degrees, an 18% rise from the academic year 2020–2021.


Every year, the KHDA releases its Open Data report, which provides a thorough overview of Dubai’s development as a successful worldwide education hub. There are now 28,100 international students living in the emirate. The study for this year includes information on 38 foreign universities.


The most recent KHDA statistics show that MDX Dubai has maintained its position as Dubai’s top-ranked international university for undergraduate business and law students for another year. MDX Dubai has also maintained its position as Dubai’s top university for humanities and tourism and hospitality bachelor’s and foundation degrees. Comparing all higher education institutions, MDX’s Humanities Postgraduate degrees continue to draw the greatest student enrollments.


Additionally, the highly regarded British LLB degree from MDX Dubai has been leading the rankings for overall student enrollment when compared to other undergraduate law schools in the emirate for the past seven years. The University’s LLB program is renowned throughout the world for producing outstanding legal professionals, with many of its graduates moving on to land graduate jobs and training contracts with multinational corporations in places like the UK and the UAE. A few former pupils have successfully succeeded on the coveted and difficult New York Bar Exam.


The most enrolled students seeking a top-notch UK university education continue to be drawn to MDX’s innovative Media & Design Undergraduate degrees because they mix strong academic theory with immersive practical study in specialized on-campus labs. This most recent KHDA report reveals the University’s Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics, which has won numerous awards, to have experienced significant growth during the 2021–2022 academic year and to be the top British provider of information technology undergraduate and graduate degrees in Dubai.


“I am incredibly pleased of our entire Middlesex community in Dubai for this wonderful success,” said Dr. Cedwyn Fernandes, Pro Vice-Chancellor of Middlesex University and Director of Middlesex University Dubai. The fact that we continue to draw the largest number of students to study with us—for both our more established programs, like Business and Law, and our more recent ones, like Media, Design, and IT—shows how our reputation for offering an immersive, engaging, careers-focused UK education and an unmatched student experience keeps growing. The success of our students and enabling them to fulfill their potential are the top priorities for our faculty. Our graduates are prepared to stand out to employers in the cutthroat global job market as they start their careers through immersive education that is modified to reflect the most recent industry teachings. This September 2022, we look forward to welcoming even more students from around the world to our talented international community.


Middlesex University Dubai keeps improving its position in the Dubai higher education sector, said Dr. Mohamad Hamade, Chief Executive Officer of Amanat Holdings. The numbers are evidence of the high caliber of the educational program and the continued assistance of all parties concerned. Over the years, MDX has established a solid reputation as a market leader and has expanded its student body, campus network, and course offerings. More significantly, the University is advancing education delivery through a number of technological developments that will benefit its students’ achievement outside of the classroom. I’d like to take this chance to express my gratitude to the University’s staff, faculty, instructors, and students for helping to get MDX where it is now and for helping to shape its future success and growth.


The announcement follows a year of unmatched success for Middlesex University Dubai, which in March 2022, in the presence of officials from KHDA, TECOM Group, Amanat Holdings, the University’s shareholder, and other significant industry stakeholders, formally opened its second campus location in Dubai International Academic City.


Throughout its illustrious 17-year existence in the UAE, MDX Dubai has grown and diversified its program portfolio across a range of subject areas in recognition of the crucial role educators play in preparing the next generation to handle the challenges of today’s complicated world. The British school is continuing to adjust its educational offering by releasing a number of creative new and better programs in September 2022 as it approaches its 18th year of providing a top-notch UK education in Dubai.


The brand-new degrees and specializations include the Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security and Digital Forensics and the ground-breaking Technology Integration and Practice pathway for the Master of Arts in Education, both of which integrate cutting-edge industry knowledge and the most recent technical skills required to pursue careers in coveted industries like technology and media. The new BA in Digital Media and Communications, MSc in Digital Marketing and Analytics, and MSc in Marketing Communications and Brand Management are just a few of the existing degrees that have been upgraded to fit the needs of companies worldwide.


The University’s graduates are equipped to pursue meaningful careers in a variety of fields that are being disrupted by globalization, sustainable development, and the digital revolution thanks to Middlesex’s dedicated Careers and Employability Services team, which helps all students find internships, build their professional networks, and participate in real-life industry projects alongside their academic studies.

On Saturday, July 16, from 11 AM to 5 PM at Dubai Knowledge Park, Middlesex will host its renowned TRANSFORM event in addition to a number of regular Campuses and Virtual Open Days that take place throughout the summer.
