The University of Malta’s Postgraduate Prospectus for 2021 and 2022 has just been published, listing an extensive number of courses demonstrating UM’s responsiveness to industry demands.
Whilst for some, following a postgraduate course is a natural next step in their professional and personal development, and for others it might be more of a challenge, the possibilities of deepening the knowledge base of a first degree are vast.
Research and Knowledge at the University of Malta are at the centre of its operations, with the University’s Corporate Research and Knowledge Transfer Office being responsible for facilitating the transfer of knowledge through direct interactions with industry, Government and other external stakeholders, TAKEOFF, the University of Malta’s Business Incubator providing a working environment for new businesses, and various ancillary services such as IT Services, the Counselling Unit, the Health & Wellness Centre, Student Advisory Services and the Access Disability Support Unit making for a more holistic experience.
The University is accepting applications from local and international students for courses commencing in October 2021, online until 22 July at 14:00.
In his foreword, UM Rector, Prof. Alfred J. Vella mentioned evolving new industries in areas such as Distributed Ledger Technologies, Artificial Intelligence and Digital Gaming, just to name a few, that are causing employers to demand more specific skills from the workforce, skills that the University continues to respond to in a timely and effective manner.
