Enrolment for applicants with overseas qualifications

We believe that international students make a valuable contribution to the cultural and academic experience of a University. The University of Malta encourages applications from such students with suitable qualifications. Currently there are around 1000 international students reading for undergraduate or postgraduate courses in Malta.

Processing of Applications

An acknowledgment email will be sent upon receipt of the application.  This will also indicate any further documentation or information required to process the application.  After the evaluation process, applicants are informed of acceptance, or advised of alternative programmes available.

In the acceptance letter, applicants requiring visas will be duly informed and supplied with the necessary information they require in connection with the visa application process. Applicants may also refer here for Visa information.


Conditional Acceptance

In case that an applicant still has to sit for examinations or is awaiting results, s/he may proceed with the application, clearly stating exactly which examinations and subjects are still to be taken or which results still have to be received.  In such cases applicants are to send the latest available results of previous examinations and/or their latest school report.  The University of Malta will evaluate the information submitted and, where appropriate, will issue a conditional acceptance, indicating the results that need to be obtained prior to the 1st September.


A large number of overseas qualifications are accepted as satisfying the entry requirements to the University of Malta. Each application is treated on its own merits. As a general rule applicants in possession of qualifications that give access to universities in their home country are accepted provided that their qualifications are of comparable standard to those required by the University of Malta and the course applied for does not require Special Course Requirements. In some instances, applicants may be advised to follow a one year Foundation Studies Course.

The University of Malta accepts GCE Advanced and Advanced Subsidiary Level certificates and the International Baccalaureate. For comparability of GCE Advanced Level Grades with the Advanced Matriculation Level Grades awarded by the MATSEC Board please click here.


Language of instruction 

The language of instruction at the University of Malta is English. Applicants who have completed their secondary education overseas are obliged to satisfy the University’s English Language requirement by presenting a Secure English Language Test (SELT) result at the required levels.
