Facilities & Services
The University of Malta owes its origin to the Collegium Melitense set up in 1592 by the Jesuits in the capital Valletta. In 1769 Grandmaster Pinto refounded the Collegium as a University. In 1968, the university moved to a spacious new campus at Msida while maintaining its historic Valletta buildings. The University, through faculties, inter-disciplinary institutes and centres offers courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in a wide range of disciplines, whilst also conducting and supervising research. The University of Malta is an increasingly popular choice for students. At present, there are around 9,500 registered students, of whom approximately 10% are international students from some 80 different countries.
