Abstract: This paper traces some of the most important developments in the history of University Continuing Education (UCE) at the University of Malta. It relies on material derived from relevant University files and from interviews with people who were involved, as organisers, teachers or students, in different UCE projects. The paper identifies the forces that influenced the various developments in UCE, attaching importance to the significant roles played by trade unions (including the teachers’ union), the Church, the academic body and different government administrations in this regard. The analysis, starting from the post-war period, targets UCE initiatives during the 60s and 70s and contemporary provision. The concluding part of the paper consists of an exploration of options for future policy in the area, where the focus is primarily on issues concerning student funding, status of evening degrees, access, distance education and the role of UCE in revitalizing the public sphere.
