What role does a University play in one’s life progression?

Some individuals make the silly mistake of leaving school after compulsory education, and never come round to read for an undergraduate degree. this may be attractive in the short term, but ill-advised in the longer term of a life struggling to keep up with the exigencies of life.

Reading for a degree at a University means that an individual wants to prepare himself or herself for a career — not a ‘job’. A career is a collage of education, experiences and jobs. Modern Universities try hard to concentrate as much knowledge and skills at undergraduate study — three years of competence building and assimilation that in the old days used to take men and women a lifetime to absorb.

The Golden Bridge between your compulsory schooling to prosperity

Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education has grasped this concept from its very inception, and set up the annual event that is organised every last Thursday of February, in which prospective employers are invited to meet our students on a ‘speed dating’ system. The event, dubbed the career’s event, brings together some of the best companies in Malta who are keen to employ fresh graduates of the Institute as well as student interns for the summer months.

Yes — we just missed the Covid-19 lock-down and students are now in their internships or set in their jobs.

Attention to detail

The National Commission for Further and Higher Education Audit Team that carried out an External Quality Assurance Audit this March 2017, had this to say about the good practice identified for student centered learning practices at the Institute; “The institution organizes an annual careers day, which takes a ‘speed dating’ format with employers. The opportunity gives students invaluable job-interview practice, leads to some of them receiving offers and is also appreciated by employers as a unique opportunity to find qualified hires. This forms part of an overall culture at the institute of strongly encouraging students to enter the workforce, even during studies.”

A student meeting a prospective employer

This system has worked so well with companies asking to be allowed to participate year in year out, mainly because they find that students and graduates are fit-for-purpose for their needs on the job. This event is open to all registered students of Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education, and employers have shown interest not only in the local students, but also students who are registered to study at Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education coming from Countries outside the European Union.
