The University of Malta
The University of Malta is the highest teaching institution in Malta. It is publicly funded and is open to all those who have the requisite qualifications. Conscious of its public role, the University strives to provide relevant and timely courses that are able to meet the needs of the country.
The supreme governing bodies of the University are the Council and the Senate. Over the past few years, the University has reviewed its structures in order to be in line with the Bologna Process and the European Higher Education Area.
There are some 11,000 students including over 600 international students from 80 different countries, following full-time or part-time degree and diploma courses, many of them run on the modular or credit system. The University regularly hosts a large number of Erasmus and other exchange students. A basic Foundation Studies Course enables international high school students who have completed their secondary or high school education overseas but who do not have the necessary entry requirements, to qualify for admission to an undergraduate degree course at the University of Malta.
The Valletta Campus and International Collaborative Programmes
Although the main campus is situated at Msida, the University of Malta has two other satellite campuses in Valletta and Gozo. The Valletta campus is housed in the Old University Building that dates back to the founding of the Collegium Melitense 1592. Today, the Valletta Campus serves as a prestigious setting for the hosting of international conferences, seminars, short courses and summer schools. It is also the venue of the University's International Collaborative Programmes (ICP).
Masters' Degree Programmes
The ICP offers, one year, three semesters, International Masters Programmes on a double degree or collaborative basis. These programmes seek to achieve a wide exchange of cultural viewpoints, networks and experiences that provide students with global perspectives. The Master's degrees that form part of the ICP are accredited by the University of Malta and in case of dual degrees also by participating university or universities.
