“I choose the University of Malta for a Mediterranean experience in English. Malta is known for the sun, its history, and its friendly demeanour, all of which I could experience in this country without learning a new language. The University of Malta is a wonderful place, full of hospitable people who are eager to accept those who come from a different culture. I have been able to make friends who come from all over the world and take courses that I could never have taken at home. I love hearing about history and the opinions of people who have been raised so differently for me. I am so happy that I choose the University of Malta to do my study abroad”.

 “I chose to study at the University of Malta after I first came to the island to follow some English lessons in one of the many English schools in Malta.  During this period, I started to appreciate the way of life, the weather, as well as the nightlife and the general openness of Maltese people. It motivated me to come back to Malta as a visiting student.

Once I started my studies, I was more than glad to have chosen Malta - even if I didn't know anyone - because it is very easy to meet people and to bond quickly. At the University of Malta, I got a completely different learning experience, which was interesting and interactive.  Indeed, lecturers are always trying to keep your attention and to involve you in the subject, explaining by using everyday situations, for example. I enjoyed my year as a visiting student so much, that I decided to come back again to do my Masters in Malta as a full-time student. I can say now that retrospectively, coming here was the best decision I ever made.”

 “Maltese people have been really warm and friendly, and there is no communication barrier since you can use English everywhere. What’s more the weather in Malta is mostly sunny, and one can enjoy the beautiful sea and beaches.

For me, the best thing about studying at the University of Malta is that I have the opportunity to meet students from all over the world. The teachers are all patient and responsible - if you have any question they would not hesitate to give you an enthusiastic answer.

Studying here helped me so much, because I have met new people, and learnt from different cultures. It has been pretty easy to adjust to life in Malta, and I managed to balance my free time with my studies, so that I can have some ‘holiday time’ too.”

 “I chose the University of Malta because of its quality teaching and because I wanted to study in an English learning environment in a country that is rich in culture and heritage. Malta offers a cultural and geographical experience which is unique in Europe.

The topics in Management are related to my area of studies at my home University and are valuable for my prospective career.  I consider that studying at the University of Malta puts me at a good advantage when being considered for employment opportunities.”

 “I enjoy the Music classes at the University of Malta and I met with many students from different Music background, which I find very interesting.  Life on Campus gives me an opportunity to meet with many students and make friends with from all over the world.  I wished to visit the University of Malta because in Malta the culture is completely different from Japan.  Malta is very multi-cultural and it gives me an opportunity to meet with people from different countries.  The history of Malta is fascinating and I love Malta’s natural landscape. I have attended Maltese Music Events and through my experience in Malta I gained more knowledge on Maltese music and European Classical Music”.
