First time graduands of the Confucius Institute


On Wednesday 28th November 2012, the graduation ceremony for the Diploma in Chinese students was held.  This was the first time ever that students at the University of Malta could study Chinese at tertiary level.  In addition, some of the successful Diploma in Chinese graduates proceeded directly to the 2nd year of the BA (Hons) course in Chinese.  

The Diploma in Chinese course began in October 2010, once the Confucius Institute at the University of Malta had been established, whilst the BA/BA (Hons) in Chinese was introduced at the University of Malta for the first time in 2012.

Both the Diploma in Chinese and the BA/BA (Hons) in Chinese courses are offered by the Confucius Institute through the Department of Oriental Studies (Faculty of Arts).

The Confucius Institute at the University of Malta started operating in October 2009 and held its official inaugural ceremony on 26 October 2011. This institute aims to promote the teaching of Chinese language and culture both to university students, to school children, and to the public at large.
