Overview of Malta

The Republic of Malta is a southern European island nation in the Mediterranean Sea, located 93 km from the south of Sicily and 288 km north of Libya. The scenic Maltese archipelago consists of three major islands: Malta, Gozo, and Comino, with a total population of around 500,000 residents. Malta, the largest of the three islands, also remains the administrative, cultural, and commercial centre. The sister city, Gozo, is the second largest island and is popular for its rural areas and countryside. Comino is famous among tourists for trekking and day trips.

The islands lie as a passageway between Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa and hold an important position in maritime history. Malta was a former British crown colony before it gained independence in 1964. Later on, the country became a republic in 1974 and joined the European Union in 2004 and the Eurozone in 2008. The country is divided into 67 local councils, and Valletta is the capital city. Maltese and English are the official languages, however, 90% of the population is fluent in Italian.

Malta

The Maltese economy heavily relies on tourism, international trade, and manufacturing. The country flourished after the opening of the Suez Canal. Nowadays, the film industry, gaming industry, and financial industry have started to bloom, boosting the country’s economy to its prime.

The Maltese climate consists of hot summers and mild winters with adequate rainfall. Malta boasts its centuries old rich history and culture in the form of several historic sites and UNESCO heritage sites, all within a small area, making it the most concentrated historical area in the world.

Maltese Education System

The Maltese education system follows the British model and has four levels of education. It is compulsory to attend school until the age of 16.

Pre primary level for students ranging from three to five years old.

Primary level is for students ranging from five to eleven years old.

Secondary level is for students ranging from eleven to eighteen years old.

Tertiary level for students over the age of eighteen.

Starting at the lower secondary level, vocational subjects are included in the curriculum. Owing to the Maltese Qualification Framework, students now have the option to select vocational home-grown subjects as optional subjects at secondary level.

Malta has three types of educational institutions, state institutions, institutions run by the church, and independent institutions.

State institutions: State-funded institutions are available in the main towns of Malta and Gozo and accessible to everyone. The study supplies and transport to and from school are free for students, however, parents have to pay for the school uniforms.

Institutions run by the church: These institutions are owned by the Catholic Church and are free of fees due to an agreement with the government. However, parents are needed to cover expenses.

Independent institutions: These institutions are run by private organisations and mostly attended by foreigners in Malta.

Why Malta

Despite the fact that Malta is the smallest country on the European continent, it offers high quality education in its institutions at every level. Their top rated academic curriculum, on par with international standards, along with the institutions with the best infrastructure, have attracted masses of students to the country. The Maltese healthcare system is rated as one of the best among European nations and is absolutely free for the natives. Owing to the bilingual status of the country, several courses are available in English to facilitate globally recognised study programmes for international students as well as the Maltese student community.

Thanks to the great weather conditions, best healthcare facilities, and safe living conditions, most of the international students decide to stay behind in Malta after their studies. Malta is fairly affordable for study abroad programmes when compared to other countries in the European belt, and it has become the root cause for the influx of international students who wish to pursue higher studies at an affordable cost.
