Events for Blood Donation
Last year Middlesex University Dubai organised two successful blood donation events on campus for the Al Wasl Children’s Hospital in Dubai. The goal is to continue assisting the Al Wasl Hospital in this drive and host two more campaigns each year. Blood Donors Cards from Dubai Health Authorities are issued to all student donors.
During the Autumn term, Middlesex University Dubai hosts an International Day. It is a day full of events, with stalls representing each participating country, offering food, souvenirs, leaflets and information on each country – by MDX students to MDX students and staff! Be proud and educate your fellow students and staff members about the intricacies of your cultures and traditions! To get involved, please contact Ms. Lulu Baddar, 04-3616247, L.Baddar@mdx.ac.

Youth Festival (‘YF’)
Celebrating the Spirit of Youth!Every year, after a packed calendar of events and tournaments, the University (proudly) organises the largest student event – the Youth Festival. There is a week-long schedule of competitions in more than 20 categories, from singing, art and writing, to cricket, football, running and fashion show leading up to a grand finale and a glittering awards ceremony!
Last year more than 1,000 students participated in YF! This event is an excellent platform for students to showcase their talents. Under the guidance of Student Activities Office and other staff members, this event is entirely organised, coordinated and managed by students. Judges and referees in the competitions are leading professionals, prominent members of Dubai’s social and professional circles, magazine editors and so on.
We welcome students to propose competition categories as well to participate in various competitions. If this looks like “too much lime-light” for some of you, please join the army of much needed volunteers – the true heroes of this event. We can assure you that you will learning and practice a range of skills from leadership to teamwork and make more friends than you can ever imagine!
