Studying IT & Business in Malta

About Malta

Malta is situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, located 90km south of Sicily and 270km from the North African coast. Malta is famous for its pleasantly sunny climate, spectacular rocky and sandy beaches and thriving nightlife, not to mention a rich historical timeline stretching back over 7,000 years. There is no island that better represents the merging of traditions, cultures and modern living than Malta, which is why its reputation as the perfect island for studying is growing. Malta has two official languages -Maltese and English.

Combining a vast open-air museum, with no less than three UNESCO World Heritage Sites and seven Megalithic temples, the island is as famous for its scenery as its history. The island has changed exponentially over the last few decades to become a top destination for overseas companies, students, tourists and retirees. Studying in Malta has become more accessible, with rapid expansion of top IT services, communication networks, accommodation and other facilities. Malta is establishing itself as a key player in Europe for new businesses and especially online gaming.

Malta gained EU membership in 2004, which further facilitated ease of studying. Obtaining a visa is more straight forward, flights are frequent and can be caught from many of Europe’s biggest airports. The vast majority of the local population speaks English fluently, so language presents no barrier to students.

About Malta

Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. It consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. The total population is of over 442.000 inhabitants. Malta is the largest island, cultural, commercial, and administrative center. Gozo is the second largest island characterized by tourism and agriculture and Comino smallest but very popular to visit in summer.

Apart from the sunny weather, charming beaches, Malta is also known for its rich history and prehistory. Prehistory dates to 5500 BC and the remains can be still seen all over the islands. A number of temples have left us an indication of the lives and beliefs of the early “Maltese” islanders. The Maltese temples in Ggantija, Gozo are older than the Great Pyramid of Cheops in Egypt and Stonehenge in southern Britain. The prehistory in many aspects remains a mystery whereby it can be still explored thousands of years later.

With a succession of powers having contested and ruled the islands, including Phoenicians and Carthaginians, Romans, Greeks, Arabs, Normans, Aragonese, Knights of St. John, French and British, Malta has historically given it great strategic importance. In 1964, Malta became independent and in 1974 it became a republic within Commonwealth with the President as a head of state. In 2004, Malta joined the European Union and in 2008 the Eurozone.
