Whether you need a visa to study English in Malta depends on your nationality and the duration of your stay. Here's a general overview updated in January 2023:

  1. EU/EEA/Swiss Nationals: Citizens of the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), and Switzerland do not need a visa to enter Malta for any purpose, including studying. However, if you plan to stay for more than 90 days, you may need to register with the local authorities and obtain a residence permit.

  2. Non-EU/EEA/Swiss Nationals:

    • Short Stays (up to 90 days): If you're from a country visa that does not need a visa for short stays in the Schengen Area, you won't need a visa for a short course. However, if your country is not visa-exempt for short stays in the Schengen Area, you'll need to apply for a Schengen visa.
    • Long Stays (more than 90 days): If you intend to study in Malta for more than 90 days, you'll generally need to apply for a national long-stay visa, regardless of your country of origin.

Please note that visa policies and requirements can change. It's essential to consult the official website of the Maltese government or contact the Maltese consulate or embassy in your country for the most up-to-date information. We can provide you with a letter of acceptance for a small fee, which you can then use to apply for a visa. Here you will find detailed information on the application and extension procedures for visas to Malta and the documents required.

English courses are held with us throughout the year. You can also drop in at short notice and join an existing study group.

It is not necessary to register weeks in advance. But early registration increases the chance that you will get a place. Especially in the popular travel months, the available places are of course limited.

From the airport you can take bus X1 and get off at Pembroke Park and Ride. The bus runs until approx. 22:50. Alternatively, you can take a taxi at the airport for about €20.00. If you are travelling in a group, we can of course organise a transfer for you.

Access to the campus and your appartment is via a reception which is staffed around the clock. This is also where you pick up your keys to your Apartment.

If you arrive before 3 pm, you can of course already use the campus amenities such as the pool, bar and restaurant. While you wait for your room to be ready. Should it be necessary to store your luggage upon arrival or departure, this is of course always possible.
