Abstract: This paper focuses on adult education provision in the micro island state of Malta. In focusing most of the discussion in terms of the scale factor, we attempt to shed some light on the dynamics of adult education in a small and island state environment. This remains our main concern as we discuss such issues as emigration, multifunctionalism, the high dependency on foreign aid, the enhancement of a "rentier status" and the ease with which one assumes expertise. All these, we argue, can impinge on the nature of adult education provision in a micro island state, as our discussion on Malta will show.
