Studying in Malta

Studying in Malta

A popular tourist destination that is treasured for the spectacular beauty of its beaches, Malta is one of the world’s smallest and most densely populated countries. It comprises an archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea to the south of Italy, with the three largest islands – Malta Island, Gozo and Comino –inhabited with a total resident population of only around 420,000. Valletta, Malta's tiny capital, is built on a peninsula that is only 1km by 600m on the north-east coast of Malta Island.
Most of the colleges and universities in Malta are clustered around Valletta. Malta attracts more than 600 full-time international students and about 500 exchange and transfer students every year, from about 80 different countries. Partnerships and links with education institutions all over the world are maintained by the government. Well-regarded degrees are awarded through full-time or part-time study programmes in subjects that include Arts, Economics, Management, Science and Technology, Health Sciences, Education, Engineering, Law among others.

International Student Visas

Malta warmly welcomes international students who satisfy all entry requirements and security clearance, and a student visa is readily obtained on application through the established procedure.
Students from within the EU, the US and a number of other countries do not require a visa to study in Malta for less than three months. Visa requirements for students who wish to undertake longer durations of study include:

  • A completed visa application form
  • Valid travel document (passport) and a valid return ticket or certificate of prepaid return journey
  • Two passport-size photographs
  • Proof of sufficient funds to cover tuition fees and living expenses. Bank statements, wage slips from the last 3 months or travellers cheques with the relevant amounts are necessary to be shown.
  • An offer of acceptance from a Maltese educational institute
  • Proof of accommodation arrangements on arrival
  • Proof of medical insurance for duration of your stay
  • Schengen visas require an application fee which varies from time to time, so kindly check with the Maltese Embassy website to confirm the actual amount and the method of payment.
  • Keep ready a self-addressed special delivery envelope to allow the Embassy to post back your passport/documents.
  • Take two sets of photocopies of all the documents provided. The originals and one set of photocopies need to be sent with your application, and you can keep the second set with you.

E-residence document

All international students planning to study in Malta for more than three months must apply for and obtain an e-residence document, in lieu of the old identity card system. This application also asks for many of the same documents and supporting materials as required for the visa. You can apply for this document after arrival in the country.
