Study in Malta

Why Study in Malta ?

This small southern European country is best known as a popular tourist destination – but if you’d like to stay longer than a two-week holiday, why not choose to study in Malta? One of the world’s smallest and most densely populated countries, Malta is a group of islands in the Mediterranean Sea to the south of Italy. The three largest of these – Malta Island, Gozo, and Comino – are inhabited, with a total resident population of roughly 420,000. Far more people than this visit each year, attracted by the beautiful beaches and lagoons, diverse watersports, vibrant nightlife, archaeological sites, and picturesque harbor towns. Malta boasts three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the historic capital city Valletta, the seven megalithic temples and the hypogeum (a prehistoric underground structure). Valletta is also preparing to take on the mantle of European Capital of Culture in 2018.

In little more than 10 years, Malta has changed remarkably from outsourcing most of its ICT requirements abroad to the current fast-increasing exports of its own excellent ICT services. With hundreds of overseas companies setting up a business and many more set to do so in the coming years, Malta is truly establishing itself as a center for international business in the region. The vision for Malta is to become one of the top 10 information societies in the world. The current development of Smart City and the thriving industry of online gaming will take the Maltese islands to the top league of ICT destinations in the world. Malta joined the European Union back in 2004 and the Eurozone in 2008. This connection has made it easier for foreign students to obtain a visa through a simple, straight forward process. Due to our graphical position and second national language (English), students can benefit from frequent direct flights to any desired location and communicate easily without the need of learning another language.
