I have paid my application fee and submitted my application. How long before I have news about the progress of my application?
In support of their application, applicants may submit either local or overseas qualifications. This means that there are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration. Applications for most University courses are received between December and mid-July, with an additional period of time that extends to end September for late applications. The time taken to process an application could depend on the following: whether the course being applied for is a limited number course (in such cases, it is not possible to work with a rolling admissions process); whether the course is a first cycle or second cycle degree because in case of the latter, more reviewers would need to be involved; whether an applicant is submitting local or overseas qualifications because in the case of overseas qualifications, comparability needs to be determined; at what stage of the admissions cycle the application is submitted, and so on. Because of these variables, it is not possible to identify with accuracy the specific timeframes for reviewing applications. However, the University of Malta remains committed to working within reasonable turnaround times in the interest of its prospective students and to issue letters of acceptance as early as possible.
