Study in Malta

Studying in Malta means studying in an island country in the Schengen area, located just 538.96 km from Tunis as the crow flies – close to home, so to speak. Studying in Malta also means pursuing your studies in high-quality, even top-level, educational institutions in a small territory that is extremely welcoming to international students. While Malta is renowned for its English language, the official language alongside Maltese, it also offers a wide range of disciplines and cutting-edge programs.
