This tiny southern European country is well known as a popular tourist destination – so if you want to spend longer than a two-week break, why not opt to study in Malta? One of the smallest and most heavily inhabited countries in the world, Malta is a group of islands in the Mediterranean Sea south of Italy.
The three main islands – Malta, Gozo and Comino – are populated, with a total resident population of about 420,000. A lot more tourists than this visit every year, drawn by gorgeous beaches and lagoons, a variety of water sports, lively nightlife, archaeological sites and picturesque harbour cities.
Malta has three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the ancient capital of Valletta, seven megalithic temples and the Hypogeum (a prehistoric underground structure). Valletta is now planning to take up the mantle as the European Capital of Culture in 2018.
In just over 10 years, Malta has dramatically improved from exporting much of its ICT requirements overseas to the new fast-growing exports of its own excellent ICT services. With hundreds of multinational firms setting up a company and many more set to do so in the coming years, Malta is truly establishing itself as a hub for international business in the country.
Malta’s goal is to become one of the top 10 intelligence firms in the world. New innovations in Smart City and the booming online gaming industry will send the Maltese Islands to the world’s top ICT destinations. Malta joined the European Union back in 2004 and the eurozone back in 2008. This link has made it easier for foreign students to secure a visa by a simple, straight forward process.
