Right from when the stone age man arrived here with the British who ruled the islands for 150 years from 1814 to 1964.
Although Malta has a rich history that dates back to prehistory, it has a modern outlook and has stepped up to the times and kept pace with the world, not just in terms of overall outlook but also in terms of being hospitable to foreign students arriving in Malta for further studies. One of the unique features for students desirous of furthering their studies is that they can study in Malta without ielts if they can provide sufficient proof of their English language ability of at least being at an intermediate level.
As any of the study in Malta consultants can vouch, students who opt for Malta for their further studies are guaranteed to not just have a great time on off days relaxing on the many beaches, but also when they are busy studying. This is mainly because of the unique Problem Based Learning or the PBL system that encourages students to solve problems based on a practical approach as well as self analysis that is combined with self study and self discipline.
Thus, students who choose to study abroad in Malta are guaranteed of quality education through self awareness, combined with world recognition.
