Your Passport to Success


Hello Adventurer!

Are you ready to explore the mysteries of Adventure Island? 

Studying is a journey, but you need not travel alone! On Adventure Island there are people to help you! And, if you get your passport stamped by all four zones, you will be entered into a draw to win an iPad!


Each zone on Adventure Island has free gifts for you - just for visiting! There will be free bags, free books and free smoothies and snacks, all for you. In addition, for everyone who gets their passport completed, they will be invited to the mysterious underwater cavern...

There is only one question you need to answer...

Are you ready to be an Adventurer?!


Competition Winners!


Student Success Festival 

Before Christmas, the Student Success Festival ran a competition to find the best student tips for success, with an iPad Air 2 as a prize. We had over fifty entries, all of which were excellent - in fact, choosing the final winner proved to be very difficult! The videos were judged by the Andrea Delaska, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Learning and Innovation, and the SSF team. In the end, the final selection was so difficult, we ended up having one winner and three runners up! Jonathan won first prize, with Ahmed, Amaris and Christina each winning a runner up prize of a £20 Amazon gift card.

Andrea and the team chose Jonathan as first prize winner due to his down-to-earth advice, which encouraged group work, peer learning, reinforcing learning and helping others. These are all values which we feel reflect Middlesex University!

“I think the study advice videos capture the wide variety of experiences, views and backgrounds in the Middlesex student population. Students from across the faculties, studying from Foundation years to PhDs shared their study experiences with us and offered advice for their friends and colleagues.  There were several standout suggestions but the panel felt that Jonathan’s reflection of how helping other students learn had also helped him develop new skills was a particularly valuable message.” - Matthew Lawson, Deputy Director, Library & Student Support.
