International Students in Malta

World Renowned Reputation

Senate House, the seat of the University of London.

Reputation is everything in education. A University of London degree is not just a printed piece of paper, but represents the academic legacy of the Institution that is awarding the degree. The University of London is one such University that enjoys a long history of academic excellence that continues to push its global ranking to this very day. Your University degree will need to support your career throughout your life and you want to study with a University that will guarantee your aspirations — be they furthering your studies at postgraduate level, or taking on more responsibilities in your career through promotions or new job placements.

Today’s corporate life is not dedicated to a single firm from cradle to retirement. We are now very much focused on the continued development of competences because the world is changing so rapidly that we cannot simply rely to live our productive life solely on our first degree. But the first degree provides the fundamentals for your future, so choose wisely.

Lowest Cost in English Speaking Countries

The expense in reading for an undergraduate degree is relative to the national disposable income of the country of origin of the student. The chart included in this adjoining image illustrates the expense of one year of tuition in highly sought after countries such as the U.S.A. and Britain, and others that are not so popular, such as Romania and Chile.

This is where we provide the right solution to the international community of students. Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education offers international students an Internationally Renowned Degree conferred by the University of London, read in Malta, at an annual tuition fee of €8,500 or a total cost of €25,500 — substantially cheaper than the same degrees read in Britain itself. And international graduates who study in Malta and secure a job after graduation enjoy five years of income tax free work worth €16,000!

Very High Value Education

Does cheap mean worthless. No. The low tuition fee comes from the fact that the cost of living in Malta is substantially lower than the cost of living in major cities in the UK or the USA. But your education is on par with the best of the United Kingdom, since your degree is assessed and conferred by the University of London and not Saint Martin’s Institute which is your teaching institution. View this video to understand how the system works.
