Established in 1592, the University of Malta is the oldest university outside the U.K. and is Malta’s only university. The present campus opened in 1968 and was recently extended to include theater-type lecture rooms, language and computer laboratories. The sports complex includes an Olympic-sized swimming pool and separate diving pool, a football ground, tennis courts and a track. There are some 11,000 students including over 650 international students from 77 different countries, following full-time or part-time degree and diploma courses, many of them run on the modular or credit system.

    Msida, Malta Campus Website

    The university is located in Msida on Malta, which is one of a group of islands and rocky islets that comprise the Republic of Malta. The island, measuring about 17 by ten miles, is in the center of the Mediterranean about 60 miles south of Sicily. The Maltese have one of the highest standards of living in the Mediterranean and an impressive record in health and education. The town enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry, sunny summers and short, cool winters. 

    Msida is a suburb of Valletta, the republic's capital city. Valletta is easily reached from the university by bus, affording convenient access to the capital's museums, palaces, hospital, theatres, libraries, botanical gardens and churches. 

    The islands have been inhabited since the dawn of civilization as the prehistoric constructions, even older than the Pyramids, attest. In fact, the oldest prehistoric buildings in Europe are found in Malta. 

    The University of Malta has several student organizations and faculty associations. These societies are an integral part of university life. They represent students and provide services which enhance campus life. When students become involved in non-academic interests at university they develop a network of friends, broadening their outlook on life.

    Students may also participate in courses offered through the degree plus program in the areas of entrepreneurship, sport, culture and heritage, development education, languages, music, creative and performing arts, and more. A small fee is associated with the participation in these courses. These courses are not credit bearing, but students receive a certificate upon completion.
