StudiesPlus+ Scheme

The Studies Plus+™Scheme works out through a special Bank of Valletta interest free fund available to Saint Martin’s Institute registered students. The fund will settle all the tuition fees that are usually payable over three academic years whilst reading for your degree, without asking you for repayments until after you finish with your studies. In addition, you will still qualify for a 70% tax rebate (maximum €16,000) through the GetQualified scheme when you are eventually in employment (This scheme works for both full-time or evening students).

Eligibility criteria for the Studies+ Plus Scheme

The student’s nationality/citizenship/residency status must meet one of the following criteria;

(a) Is a Maltese citizen; OR

(b) Is a citizen of an EU/EEA Member State or a family member of such an EU/EEA national (as defined in ), provided that such person has obtained permanent residence in Malta in accordance with (Subsidiary Legislation) SL 460.17 and SL 217.04 respectively; OR

GetQualified Scheme

Up to €16,000 (70%) of the expenses are paid as income tax rebate

Even if you opt to pay tuition fees from your own savings rather than avail yourself of the StudiesPlus+ loan, you will be eligible for the GetQualified scheme of €16,000 (70% of all your expenses for your studies) income tax rebate, when you are eventually in employment (or if already in employment and studying part-time, you will benefit as soon as you finish every stage of your qualification).

Tuition paid by parents/guardians

Can your parents imagine receiving back, from Government, the income tax, payable at the end of each year? That’s how the GetQualified Scheme works. A parent pays the full tuition fees, registers the expense under the GetQualified Scheme and sends a full statement with the Annual Income Tax return — and at the end of the year, the full income tax paid in the previous year is received in full — and this continues until a maximum of €16,000 in income tax is received as a cashable cheuque.

Stipends & Maintenance Grants

If you study on full time basis, you will also benefit from stipends and maintenance grants under the Malta Government Undergraduate Scheme (MGUS), if you have been a resident in Malta for the past five years. This means that you will get a grant at the beginning of each academic year, and a monthly stipend throughout the nine-month academic year.

University of London fees

If you are reading for an University of London degree, some fees need to be paid directly to the University of London that include registration and examination fees in addition to the tuition fees payable to Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education. The University of London fees are also eligible for both Studies Plus + and the GetQualified tax rebate scheme.
