Universities and Colleges in Malta
Courses at the University of Malta (founded 1592 as the Jesuits’ College) include architecture, arts, diplomatic studies, education, engineering, law, medicine, sciences and theology. G F Abela Junior College (University of Malta) was established at Msida (greater Valletta), in 1995. Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology offers a very wide range of vocational and professional education and training, with its main campus at Paola (greater Valletta). The International Maritime Law Institute is based in Malta.
Around 10% of 20-29 year olds in Malta are in university education, which is somewhat lower than the average EU rate of 25%. However, the growth rate of students in higher and further education is encouraging – in the decade between 1999 and 2009, the student population grew by 50% to almost 23,000 students. The female–male ratio for gross enrolment in tertiary education is 0.72:1 (2008). Literacy among people aged 15–24 is 98% (2005).
The National Commission for Higher Education (NCHE) is responsible for compiling data about the sector, and authorises further education programmes and institutions.
