The University of Malta’s Programme in the Liberal Arts and Sciences (PLAS) is an excellent opportunity for personal and professional development. Prospective students may apply for any and as many Units as they wish from the broad range of PLAS Units on offer. PLAS Units consist of weekly evening lectures between 18:00 and 20:00, normally spread over 14 weeks.
Nineteen Units will be offered in Semester 1 of 2016/17, commencing in October 2016. The subjects covered include Malta’s Archaeology, Modern History, Human Geography, Legal System, Dante’s Divine Comedy, Nature Photography, Environmental and Advanced Marine Issues, Winemaking, and Cosmology.
Furthermore, three PLAS Tech Units are also being offered. The rationale of these Units is to respond to the need for ICT professionals to enrich their academic education with focused expertise on a selection of current and emerging software technologies and tools. In the next semester, Units on Data Science, Enterprise Architecture, and Modern Java are being offered. PLAS Tech Units are included in the Get Qualified scheme.
Applications for PLAS Units are now being received through the website of the Centre for the Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS). More information on individual Units and application fees can also be found on the website.
The deadline for applying is 15 September 2016.
