Middlesex University has announced that it will open a campus in Malta, with students welcomed from this September.
The campus, located in Pembroke on Malta’s north-east coast, will initially offer business and computing courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
The project builds on a successful collaborative franchise partnership which has operated for the last six years, resulting in excellent student success.
Middlesex Deputy Chief Executive Melvyn Keen said: “Now is the right time to build on the success of the last six years, putting in place new options for people in Malta as well as providing further access to a high quality British education for students across North Africa, the Middle East and Asia.”
“As the first international university to locate in Malta we look forward to working with the Maltese Government who share this commitment to providing more opportunities for both local and international students.”
Malta has quickly established itself as a centre for international business in the region, with the ICT industry already a main pillar of the economy. Courses initially offered will meet a local need to develop talent in business and computing, though there are plans to expand the range of courses as demand grows, a strategy successfully implemented at Middlesex’s other campuses in Dubai and Mauritius.
