Malta:Glossary

The University of Malta and the Malta College of Arts Science and Technology (MCAST) are the publicly-funded educational institutions providing higher education courses. The Institute of Tourism Studies (ITS) provides a Higher Diploma in Management Studies which is equivalent to the first year of a Bachelor’s degree. Students completing this diploma may register into the second year of the Bachelor’s degree in Tourism Studies at the University of Malta. The University of Malta has thirteen Faculties as well as a considerable number of Institutes and Centres. On the other hand MCAST has ten Institutes in Malta and one centre in Gozo.

Chapter 327 of the Laws of Malta - The Education Act - establishes the legal framework for the governance and structure of the University of Malta as well as MCAST. By means of the 2006 (Act XIII) amendments to the Education Act, the National Commission for Higher Education (NCHE) was established to advise Government through a structured dialogue with all institutions so as to work towards sustainable development of the further and higher education sectors to meet the needs of society. Its main functions are:

  • ascertaining the needs and the aspirations of further and higher education institutions;
  • informing the public of issues connected with sustainable development of further and higher education sectors in Malta in order to meet the needs of society; and
  • providing advice to Government on any matter which is connected with the further and higher education sectors.

Since its inception, the NCHE has carried out studies on higher education in relation to the Bologna Process and the Copenhagen Process that have been the subject of wide-ranging consultation resulting in major developments.
