MEDAC Alumni Association

MEDAC Alumni Association was officially launched on 30th March 2006 at the German-Maltese Circle, Valletta. The purpose of this Association is to foster a network between former and current MEDAC students and to maintain links between MEDAC and its alumni. The Association organizes two annual events, being MEDAC International Cultural Night in autumn and an ambassadorial lecture in spring. It is also seeking to organize events outside Malta where MEDAC alumni are located.
