The University of Malta is a public university in which undergraduate students from Malta and the European Union who qualify for admission may go for free.

It traces its roots back to 1592, with the founding of the Collegium Melitense by the Jesuits. The college building is now known as the Old University Building or the Valletta Campus.

It was then established as a traditional university some 250 years ago in 1769.

Today, the Valletta Campus houses the Evans Building for the Faculty of Science. There is also a medical campus near St Luke’s Hospital in Gwardamanga, a campus on Malta’s sister island Gozo, and a much larger campus at Tal-Qroqq in Msida, where the university is now mostly based. The sports complex includes an Olympic-sized swimming pool, a diving pool, a football ground, tennis courts and a track.

There are over 11,500 students, around 1,000 of whom are international students from over 92 countries. The Faculty of Dental Surgery accepts six European students a year. The university also hosts Erasmus and other exchange programmes.

A Foundation Studies Course is available to international students who have completed their secondary education but who do not have the necessary entry requirements to qualify for admission to an undergraduate course.

Maltese students enrolled in higher education in Malta are entitled to a stipend.

There are 14 faculties, a number of interdisciplinary institutes and centres and three schools.

The university motto is "Serving students, scholarship and society, sustainably".

Life at the University of Malta is busy but fun! Throughout my University experience, I got the opportunity to make new friends, meet new people who I also work within the Summer period, and build relationships. As a 3rd Year student, I have already experienced a lot from this University, not to mention the activities on campus. Freshers' Week is a blast! I get to meet my University colleagues after the Summer period, there's a bunch of good vibes on campus and many companies and organisations have a stand on campus where we could get to know the organisations and possibly also apply for jobs with the entities. As an educational experience, it was very beneficial for me! I had the chance to apply things which I have learned at University and applied them to my work, even while I am still a student. The study units are mostly interesting, and our lecturers do their utmost to engage us in the course and to prepare us for the future. The course is definitely reaching my expectations as years go by as I feel satisfied when I go to my place of work and I am taught something which I had already learned at University. I personally really like the Christmas season, and the good Christmas vibes on campus truly help me to get into the spirit of it, even while at University. I would most definitely recommend this University. We are an international University as the students are not only locals, but we are multi-national, and it is an experience which one will surely treasure!
