The University of Malta Senate approved the Fitness to Practise Policy at its meeting on 13 May 2021.
The Policy outlines general principles for the provision of support to all students following courses of study at the UM. It also sets out protocols and administrative procedures for investigating allegations or concerns about fitness to study, train and practise.
The need for a formal policy stemmed from the University of Malta’s responsibility towards the public, as well as the concern for the welfare of all its students and staff. The University has the responsibility to ensure that students are not only academically competent, but also that those who successfully complete professional programmes are fit to practise within their chosen profession at the start of their career and in compliance with the respective statutory body regulating their profession.
