Brighter days ahead


The University of Malta wishes to assure all its students, local and international, prospective and continuing, that courses will commence and teaching will continue during the coming academic year.

We do not know what the situation will be like in October 2020. However, the University of Malta is planning to proceed with its teaching programmes as smoothly as possible for the benefit of its students.

Courses are scheduled to commence with face-to-face lectures with effect from Monday, 19 October 2020.

Access the details about the dates when particular courses will start. Local and international, first-year and continuing students should therefore make arrangements to be in Malta and plan to attend for lectures on campus as from the dates indicated.

Should circumstances be such that no teaching can take place face to face, or if it is not possible to hold all courses on campus, teaching will continue through remote instruction on a variety of platforms and teaching modes. Timetables will be published and students will be able to follow teaching sessions at the scheduled times. Should a decision be taken to start a course remotely, the University will inform you as soon as practicable.

Hundreds of local and international applications, from prospective students, have reached us and continue to be received.

If you are still thinking about whether to apply or not, the University of Malta encourages you to submit an application. A number of concessions regarding entry requirements and SELT have been approved and you might qualify for them. Access further information. Alternatively, do contact us.

Our academic and administrative staff are working hard to ensure that our current students are fully supported this semester to be able to proceed with their teaching and assessments. We are also making plans to cover all eventualities to be able to welcome you to Msida this coming October.

We appreciate your understanding at this time and we wish good health to you and your loved ones.
