Advisory for Indian students planning to study in Malta


  All Indian students planning to join a university/college/institute in Malta are advised to make necessary inquiries and consider the following before applying for admission at an institution in Malta:


(i)    Please ensure that the university/college/institute has proper accreditation and recognition in Malta.


(ii)    It is advisable that students directly approach the college/university/institute for admission instead of applying through agents. Students must also check all the information directly from the university/college/institute regarding duration of the course, course fee and terms and conditions regarding their student visa.


(iii)       It is also advisable that admission fee is deposited with the university/college/institute directly after obtaining Maltese visa. If the university/college/institute insists on deposit of admission/tuition fees before appropriate visa is granted, prior assurance in writing may be sought from the respective university/college/institute for refund of fees, in case the student is unable to join the institution due to unavoidable circumstances such as refusal of long-term visa.


(iv)      Students are advised to carefully check the latest travel restrictions for travel to Malta in view of the COVID-19 pandemic situation.


(v)    In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, students planning to join a university/college/institute are also advised to check that the courses they plan to get admitted to, require their physical presence in Malta and have not been shifted to online courses.
