Newspoint, the official news portal of the University of Malta (UM), providing staff, students, alumni and the general public with information on news and activities at the University and beyond. It also includes notices that are of special interest to UM staff and students, as well as opportunities to participate in a wide range of events and research projects.
We're looking for newsworthy stories, opinion pieces, Q&As, forthcoming events, announcements, accompanied by high quality photos/images (without text). These may be sent for inclusion on Newspoint by submitting the official Marketing Request Form.
UM staff and students are reminded to look closely the Notices page on Newspoint.
Newspoint Update is sent every Wednesday, to the University of Malta staff and students mailing list. Items to be considered for the Newspoint Update are to be submitted by Tuesday afternoon. The Newspoint Update archive is available on this portal too.
Newspoint Extra is another service offered by the MCAO. You may wish to further promote your submission through a dedicated email sent to UM staff and students. Please note that due to GDPR restrictions, we cannot send any marketing-related content. As such, this medium is usually used to inform our audience of the various notices published on Newspoint.
Newspoint is also available on My UM, the official app of the University of Malta. Download My UM today.
