The Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries at Middlesex University is an innovative, inclusive, and dynamic community of creative practitioners, impacting our students and communities for the better. We inspire and challenge our students in a friendly, inclusive, and practice-led environment. Our staff, both academic and technical, are experts in their fields. As scholars, researchers and practitioners they play a key role in transforming the lives of students and impacting our local and global communities through innovation and collaboration.

Arts and Creative Industries at Middlesex University has been enriching the creative, cultural and intellectual life of London and communities around the world for over 130 years, beginning life as Hornsey College of Art, founded in 1880 – an iconic British art institution, renowned for its experimental and progressive approach to art and design education. Today, the Faculty is made up of four academic departments; Design, Performing Arts, Media, and Visual Arts. Collaboration and interdisciplinary practice is at the heart of what we do, and our industry-standard facilities enable students and researchers to shape their fields using the most up-to-date equipment and technology, with full technical support.
