We are very pleased to announce that our Part-Time Diploma in Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship shall be offered at the University Gozo Campus for the first time in October 2017. This course is aimed at individuals who would like to further their education and improve their career prospects but are not in a position to attend full-time day courses due to other commitments.

This Diploma shall develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that comprise the entrepreneurial mindset which the European Commission has identified as a key competence for life. This enables individuals to generate and implement creative ideas, to be self-confident, autonomous and proactive, to plan and execute projects, and to act in socially responsible ways. These skills are sought after by both public and private organisations that recognise the importance of key competencies, transferable skills and knowledge where creativity, innovation (including innovation management) and entrepreneurship are concerns. This Diploma shall thus enhance employability and personal development, not only for those who aspire to start up and run their own business but also for those who wish to boost their employment prospects or professional career.


Course Duration and Time Table:

The Course shall extend over a period of four semesters (i.e., two academic years) of part-time study.  Lectures shall be held at the University of Malta Gozo Campus twice a week (usually Friday evenings and Saturday Mornings). The full programme of studies is available here.

To view the study unit descriptions, please click on study unit codes (e.g., IOT 1008).


Course Fees:

The course fees for EU students are 900 Euros per annum (generally payable at the beginning of each semester - i.e., October and February).

The courses fees for non-EU Students are Eur4,250 per annum. 


Entry requirements:

Applicants must satisfy the general requirements for admission as specified in the Admissions Regulations (2016) of the University.

However if you are over 23 years of age, you may apply for this Diploma as “Adult Learners”. This means that you would not require any formal qualifications, but you would be required to attend an interview to determine your eligibility (i.e., to confirm that you are able to achieve the same academic standards as younger applicants who have the required certificates).



Applications are submitted online here.

With the application you would be required to submit a letter written in English giving your motivation for applying for the course, together with a copy of your CV and the relevant application fee.

Late applications are being received until 31st August 2017.
