Hello everyone,

Students make up an important part of the expat population. This year again, thousands around the world will be leaving their home country to study abroad. How about giving them a hand by sharing with them information about the best universities in Malta?

What are the best universities in Malta ? What makes them the best universities? What are their international ranking?

What are the success rates of these universities?

What are the subjects taught at these universities?

What are the general requirements to get into them?

What are the tuition fees to study at those universities?

When does the academic year begin and end in Malta ?

What are the specific advantages of studying in these universities (job prospects, internships, internationally recognized degrees…) ?

Please share your experience,



Im a PhD candidate at University of Malta and former snr lecturer from London Met, UK. I also teach at UoM as a visiting lecturer. Ive also worked with students from MCAST. My discipline is multimedia and new media.

I would suggest that University of Malta and MCAST seem to be good solid institutions of study across the topic areas, they operate under EQF standards for quality and assessment, so should be very transferable internationally as qualifications. I also have good impression of St Martins local campus for their media courses, as well as Middx based at Pembroke for a variety of ICT business orientated courses.  These will also use EQF for their QA.

Personally I would try to avoid private universities who operate for profit, but it may be that you need more information on that. Try to find out who assesses these courses, and what framework they use.
