Strategic Plan 2020-2025

As a dynamic tertiary education institution, the University of Malta has developed a strategy that will chart its course for the years to come.

The Strategic Plan 2020-2025 sets out the goals and priorities for the University, its faculties, departments, centres, institutes and schools. The plan approved by the Senate on the 30 May 2019 and by the Council on the 21 June 2019, reflects the evolving state of higher education, society, industry and the economy. It focuses on students’ experience, resources, contribution of the academic community and the University's impact on the nation as well as the insights of the wider University community and social partners.

During the academic year 2018-19 the entire University community of 15,000 students and staff, as well as its external stakeholders were invited to actively participate in the strategic planning process through strategy conferences, working groups, advisory committees and surveys. 

The Strategic Plan will be supported by a more comprehensive implementation plan which will be endorsed by the University Senate and Council and overseen by the Steering Committee for Strategic Planning, chaired by the Rector. The University's internal and external stakeholders will remain vital to the implementation of the plan.
