Requirements for Admission to the University of Malta

Applicants for undergraduate level courses are required to satisfy the General Entry Requirements for admission to the University of Malta. Applicants are also required to satisfy the Special Course Requirements where applicable.

The General Entry Requirements are the following:

(a)the Matriculation Certificate; and

(b)passes at grade 5 or better in the Secondary Education Certificate (SEC) examinations in English Language, Maltese* and Mathematics.

*A non-Maltese applicant may be allowed to offer instead of Maltese, another language as approved by the Admissions Board; provided that, as from September 2018 such other language cannot be English, and applicants whose mother tongue is English, shall be required to offer a language other than English instead of Maltese.

For the medical course commencing in 2015 or later, all non-Maltese applicants who are not in possession of a SEC pass in Maltese at grade 5 or better, must present a Medical Maltese Proficiency Certificate which is awarded if applicants pass an examination set by the University.

The Matriculation Certificate (http://www.um.edu.mt/matsec/regulations) comprises six subjects and is awarded if students obtain 44 points or higher, including passes in a language, a humanistic and a science subject as well as a pass in a subject entitled “Systems of Knowledge”.

In the case of applicants who pursued their secondary education outside Malta, the University would accept comparable qualifications, provided that the required mix of subjects and levels would make the qualifications comparable to the Matriculation Certificate Examination. The lack of a pass in Systems of Knowledge by itself would not preclude acceptance, as long as other qualifications make up for its absence.
