Knowlede Transfer Office


In order to be eligible to participate in the Placements Scheme, you must be registered as a current student with the University of Malta.

Work Permit

For employment placements, you will need to have the necessary permits and paperwork in place. If you are an EU national, then permission to work is normally granted automatically. If you are a non-EU national, you may refer to the Employment and Training Corporation (ETC) for advice. This is not necessary for non-employment placements.

Application Process

If you have already identified a host organisation willing to offer you a placement, please contact the DegreePlus office.

Otherwise, to apply to one of the placements we are advertising, you must first identify a suitable placement by browsing Placement Opportunities. Once you have identified the key placement or placements which you would like to be considered for, click on ‘APPLY’ at the bottom of the opportunity description.

Note that:

  • for placements in which the host organisation will select the best candidate: when you click 'APPLY' an email to the host organisation will be automatically generated with some key information. You may edit the email and should attach a covering letter and CV. Our office is one of the recipients of this email and it is important that you do not change that.
  • for placements available on a first-come-first-served basis: an email to our office will be automatically generated with some key information. The host organisation will be informed of the first applicant's details and will approve the student, at their discretion. The first applicant for a particular placement will be answered positively by the host organisation and the placement will be removed from the website. As there may be delays, it is important that you receive a positive confirmation before you consider the placement secured. Anyone sending in an application which has not arrived first will be informed that they were not successful.

Upon receiving the confirmation email about your placement, you should contact the host organisation to thank them for the opportunity. You and the host organisation will need to put certain documentation in place, depending on the type of placement being offered. Click here to find out what needs to be put in place for your placement.

You should also read through the Placement page, the FAQs and other useful information which has been provided. If there is something we missed out, or you need any further information, please contact us.
