What requirements do I need to study in Malta?

If you’re convinced that you want to come and study in Malta, you’ll be glad to know that there aren’t many requirements to achieve that.

For example, if you have a European passport, there are no special requirements for you to come and study English in Malta. You just need to choose an English school, buy your plane tickets, and embark on the adventure.

  • Round-trip plane tickets.
  • Enrollment in an English course.
  • An invitation letter or a reservation of accommodation.

    Despite its small size, Malta has everything you need to fall in love with it. Its main cities are full of history reflected in the architecture of its houses, streets, and monuments, and are surrounded by incredible landscapes and beaches. The three best cities to live in Malta are St. Julians, Valletta, and Sliema.


    St Julians

    St. Julians is a coastal city located 7 km from Valletta and with a population of about 13,800 inhabitants. St. Julians is very touristy and offers excellent daytime and especially nightlife. Many compare this small city in Malta with Mykonos or Ibiza, although the charm of St. Julians is different: thanks to the architecture of the city, you will feel like you’re partying in a movie set.

    The most famous neighborhood in St. Julians is Paceville, where most hotels, bars, and restaurants are located, and where hundreds of tourists stroll during the summer nights when the heat is less intense.

    During the day, the best plan is to go to St. George Bay, one of the few sandy beaches you will find in Malta. Or if you’re more of an urbanite, you’ll love walking around the city’s shopping centers, where you’ll find cinemas, bowling alleys, casinos, gaming halls… with good air conditioning systems, perfect for escaping the summer heat in Malta.

    La Valeta

    La Valeta, located in the northern part of the island of Malta, covers an area of less than 1 km2 and has a population of 6,309. It is a city with a rich history and spectacular Renaissance architecture from the 14th century. Its streets are lined with fortresses, churches, gardens, and museums filled with beautiful works of art by famous Italian painters such as Caravaggio.

    Valletta is one of the few remaining fortified cities and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1980. Walking through its streets is like taking a journey through history, with tales of knights and conquering kings.

    With a population of 22,591 and located between Valletta and St. Julians, Sliema competes in popularity with St. Julians; it attracts thousands of tourists every year who seek to enjoy the tranquility of this beautiful city that was once Malta’s most important fishing port.

    Sliema is abundant in restaurants and beachfront bars where you can enjoy delicious Mediterranean cuisine and colorful cocktails.

    In addition, Sliema has a beautiful waterfront promenade, The Ferries, and its coast is dotted with rocky beaches where you can cool off on hot days.
