Students are better able to realise their academic potential and fully integrate into our University system, when a socially supportive environment is provided. Students have at their disposal a wide variety of services designed to support them during their stay. Your first point of reference should be the International Office. Your key contact points will be made known to you upon arrival. 

Contact details of International Office staff are available here.  

The University of Malta has drawn up guidelines that should help students if they find themselves in distress. These guidelines are handed out during Orientation but are also available for download here. (Access to registered students only.)
