Middlesex set to launch third international campus in Malta
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, computing and finance courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels;
BSc Honours Information Technology and Networking (Year 2/3 direct entry)
BSc Honours Internet Application Development (Year 2/3 direct entry)
MSc Business Information Systems Management
BA Honours Financial Services (Full degree)
BA Honours International Business Administration (Year 3 direct entry)
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 is an established 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.
