Middlesex University has risen 11 places in this year's Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide (2016), from 85th to 74th. It is now the highest-ranked modern university in London and saw an improvement in almost all measures this year, with a particularly strong performance in the Graduate Prospects measure.

To achieve this, MDXworks, delivered by the Employability Service, supports and works with students to:
Employers often look for a number of different employability skills when looking to hire someone. A positive attitude is key, as is a readiness to take part, openness to new ideas and activities, and a desire to learn and achieve results.
One-to-one employability support is available by phone, email or Skype/online. Our Employability Service provide the following services for current students and on-going support for graduates, helping to develop those invaluable skills for work experience, placements, internships or that all important graduate job.
Our School-specific Employability Business Partners offer group skills development workshops delivered in departments on behalf of academic colleagues. Topics are targeted towards particular programmes of study.
Tailored support is also available to help students set up and grow their own businesses through our Enterprise Development Hub.
The Enterprise Development Hub (EDH@MDX) is a university wide initiative for students, alumni and staff that want to become business start-ups/owners, self-employed, freelance, contractor, sole trader and those who wish to be more entrepreneurial.
Our mission is to improve positive outcomes for students and staff with regards to the development of enterprise and entrepreneurial skills. We do this by providing the collaborative support of academics, external practitioners and volunteers.
