University of Malta

Lying at the cross-roads of the Mediterranean, the University of Malta (UM) has been, over its 400-year history, the hub for international academic exchange on the island. UM is the leading higher education institution in Malta and it provides a vibrant higher education setting in the arts, sciences and the humanities as required for Malta’s economic, social and cultural development. There are some 11,500 students, including around 1,000 international students from 92 different countries, which is facilitated by the fact that the language of instruction is English.

Msida is a harbour town in the Central Region of located just west of Valletta on the northeast coast of Malta. As its Arabic-derived name implies, it knows its origins as a fishing village although today it is mostly associated with the University of Malta, which makes it popular with students. Over the years, Msida developed according to the needs of an increasing student population. It also still operates a very active and attractive Yacht Marina, which is one of the main attractions.
