University of Malta (UoM) - Malta

 

The University of Malta is the highest teaching institution in Malta. It is publicly funded and is open to all those who have the requisite qualifications. Over the past few years, the University has reviewed its structures in order to be in line with the Bologna process and the European Higher Education Area. Conscious of its public role, the University strives to create courses which are relevant and timely in response to the needs of the country. The supreme governing bodies of the University are the Council and the Senate.

There are some 10,000 students including over 600 foreign / exchange students from nearly 60 different countries, following full-time or part-time degree and diploma courses, many of them run on the modular or credit system. A basic Foundation Studies Course enables international high school students who have completed their secondary or high school education overseas but who do not have the necessary entry requirements, to qualify for admission to an undergraduate degree course at the University of Malta. The University is geared towards the infrastructural and industrial needs of the country so as to provide expertise in crucial fields. Almost 3,000 students graduate in various disciplines annually. The degree courses at the University are designed to produce highly qualified professionals, with experience of research, who will play key roles in industry, commerce and public affairs in general.

The Faculty of Education offers a wide repertoire of training that includes such fields as adult education, media studies, journalism, youth studies, and librarianship. The Faculty strives to promote quality education in all its aspects, primarily through teaching, research, consultancy work, and the provision of educational resources, and by modelling, through its own practice, the high standards that it strives to achieve in inculcate in all learning settings.
