What is the ‘maturity (adult learners) clause’? When is it applicable?

In terms of the Admissions Regulations, the University may consider admitting persons as regular students if they will have reached the age of 23 by the beginning of the course for which they would have applied; that is by 1st October for courses commencing in October and by 1st February for admission to courses commencing in February. Admittance is not based on age only and such applicants are normally assessed through an interview and/or other form of assessment to ascertain that they have the adequate academic background to be able to follow their selected course with profit.

Do I have to satisfy any requirements to apply under the ‘maturity (adult learners) clause’?

Applying under the ‘maturity (adult learners) clause’ does not automatically guarantee entry to all courses offered by the University of Malta. Different Faculties may lay out different requirements for adult learners, such as attending for a selection interview, sitting for proficiency tests, and/or presenting the European Computer Driving License (ECDL) Certificate. It is best to liaise directly with the Faculty concerned to determine what the requirements would be. Over and above this, all applicants who completed their secondary education overseas would need to present a Secure English Language Test (SELT) result. Adult learners are not exempted from this requirement. More details about SELT are available on this website and can be accessed from here:
