The University makes every effort to ensure that the published Courses Plans, Programmes of Study and Study-Unit information are complete and up-to-date at the time of publication. The University reserves the right to make changes in case errors are detected after publication.
The availability of study-units is subject to timetabling constraints.
Units not attracting a sufficient number of registrations may be withdrawn without notice.
Unless for exceptional approved reasons, no changes to the programme of study for a particular academic year will be made once the students' registration period for that academic year begins.
The language of instruction at the University of Malta is English (where applicable, that is except for students following study-units in foreign languages), and students are expected to be fluent in the English language which will enable them to successfully complete their Erasmus+ Mobility.
