Come to Malta!

Residence is an excellent experience and I would recommend anyone wishing to attend the University to stay there. The facilities are about standard, but it is the easiest way to meet people and is a fun way to get through the semester. The university can be frustrating because of the relaxed manner of the professors, administration, and everything in general. However, Malta is in an excellent location for meeting new people, additional travel, and a unique experience.

What would you improve about this program?
There could be less red tape and administrative hassles in the beginning of the semester.

Beautiful Country and People, Good Time, Weird University

Coming from the US I was expecting a certain standard at the University, however the classes are way to easy, half the people only go half the time, you don't need to study until exams, and the exam period is over a month long. While they are easy it is still fun to attend classes as you may only have one assignment the whole semester or just an end exam, and participating and chatting with the professors can be very fun. It did not find a single professor here that wasn't extremely passionate about their subject and willing to show it. The only problem I had was with the staff for the ISEP program in Malta. They are really inflexible and very rude! I needed to move to exams for an internship I committed to over a year ago in Italy and I spent over a month emailing everyone at my home university and in Malta getting whatever they asked for that day and I was still denied, no matter what. I had to reschedule everything and apologize profusely to my internship program for my very late arrival. Despite all of the Universities problems the Maltese people are amazing and some of the best I have honestly ever met! I felt right at home here and got to live at a residence with a bunch of other exchange students as a community, I truly made friendships that last a lifetime! The country is beautiful and so easy to navigate and explore you will never run out of things to do, places to see, activities to participate in, cliffs to hike, and the AMAZING party scene does not stop. If you love partying or sitting on the Beach, if you love architecture, history, archaeology, and nature Malta is definitely the place to come because it has a bit of everything!

What would you improve about this program?
The ISEP coordinator in the main office of the University, should be nicer to students and help them rather then hinder them at every turn.

University of Malta is tons of fun

The school is defiantly a place to party. The academics are okay, pretty reasonably on par with my school in the US. If you come here you should live at the University Residence. All of the other international students live with you and it is a great place to meet people. The island is beautiful and warm and a pretty easy place to travel from. I had a lot of fun and I can't recommend it enough!
