Frequently Asked Questions

Are the College’s courses accredited?

Yes! All the courses offered by Global College Malta are accredited by the Malta Further and Higher Education Authority. For more information please check this website: https://mfhea.mt/ 

How are courses at Global College Malta delivered?

All our courses at Global College Malta are delivered in the evenings at times that are suitable for many working professionals. Classes normally start at 17:30 and take place during weekdays. Prospective students are encouraged to seek further information from our guidance officers since timetables may occasionally vary according to the course.

What are modular courses?

Modular courses are courses that are especially designed for people who have a hectic lifestyle and might not be able to commit to a course that has a very rigid schedule. By studying their course on a modular basis students are able to “hop on and hop off” the course by completing one module at a time. Students will cover a module in 6 weeks (typically made up of lectures, seminars, groupwork and self-study followed by assessment). Once finished students can hop onto the next module for their course or take a short break. Courses that are designed in this manner are the Executive MBA, Executive MBA specialising in Logistics and Supply Chain Management and the MSc in Strategy, Leadership and Change Management.

How can I pay for my course?

Global College Malta offers a number of financial schemes including discounts. Prospective students are encouraged to get in touch to find out about our currently available discounts. Furthermore, at Global College Malta students are offered the facility to pay their courses in monthly instalments (interest free).

Students are also able to seek financial assistance from schemes such as the Get Qualified Scheme (https://education.gov.mt/en/get-qualified/Pages/Default.aspx), the Endeavour Scheme (https://education.gov.mt/en/education/myScholarship/Pages/default.aspx) and Student Bank Loans.

What is the ‘Get Qualified Scheme’?

The ‘Get Qualified Scheme’ is a Government tax rebate incentive. Students are encouraged to apply for the ‘Get Qualified Scheme’ during their first year of tuition and, if successful, they will be eligible to get 70% of their tuition fees refunded to them upon successful completion of the course. This incentive is valid for Maltese residents who work in Malta only. For more information on this Scheme please visit: (https://education.gov.mt/en/get-qualified/Pages/Default.aspx),

What will Global College Malta offer me that others may not?

Global College Malta prides itself on ensuring that each and every one of its students has a rewarding and purposeful learning experience with us. The College accordingly goes out of its way to offer a lot of assistance to its students during their time studying with us. We offer students access to an online library that allows them to research and access millions of journals, books and other material that they might need for their studies. We additionally offer a series of support sessions aimed at helping students develop their skills in writing assignments, preparing for exams and attain other skills that they might need to successfully complete their chosen course with us. Finally, we have an open door culture, meaning that students are free to come and speak to us should they require additional assistance.

So, we believe that we are importantly different from other learning providers in the way in which we provide high quality courses and learning experiences and the way in which we help support every student whilst they are on their learning journey with us!

Is there any help offered during my research project/ dissertation?

We pride ourselves on having lecturers who are very approachable and helpful and who are dedicated to delivering excellent student-centred lectures. All the College’s lectures and seminars are delivered in English.

What are the entry requirements for the courses at Global College Malta?

The entry requirements vary from one course to the other. We offer both undergraduate Bachelor’s and postgraduate Masters’ courses and the entry requirements reflect the academic level of the course. Prospective students are advised to check out the entry requirements section for each course available on this website. In considering applications to its courses, Global College Malta will take into account the experiences and professional achievements of all prospective students. Accordingly, if you are a prospective student who feels that you might lack the necessary academic qualifications for a course we would actively invite you to speak to our guidance and admissions officers to see whether your skills and experiences make you eligible for the course of your choice.

How do I get a Reference?

The person who writes a reference for you should know you well enough to write about you in an informed manner. References from family, other relatives or very close friends are not accepted. If you are at school or college, or have only left recently, you should approach your head teacher, principal or an appropriate teacher or tutor to write a reference for you.

Guidance for Referees: Where appropriate, we would appreciate it if you could use formal headed paper. Please provide the College with an assessment of the suitability of the applicant for the higher education course that they have applied for. Where possible, it would be very helpful if you could cover the following points in your reference:

  1. Information on the applicant’s existing achievements, with particular reference to the subjects that they may have studied and how these relate to the applicant’s chosen study course at the College;
  2. Your assessment of the applicant’s academic potential, including, where relevant, their predicted results or performance;
  3. Your assessment of their likely motivation and commitment towards completing the chosen study course;
  4. Any information you may have on other relevant skills and achievements, whether certified or not, that the applicant may have;
  5. Your assessment of the applicant’s ability to analyse problems and undertake independent study;
  6. Any other additional information you may be aware of that may have impacted on the applicant’s performance in the past or may impact upon their performance in the future; and,
  7. Any information you may have about whether the applicant has any special needs or other requirements that the College should usefully be made aware of, having regard to prevailing data protection regulations.

 

What should I provide when I am asked to get a reference?

Both intending undergraduate and postgraduate students should seek to provide two academic references. If this is not likely to prove possible (for example, if you have been out of education for more than three years) you may provide two work-related references as an alternative.

Academic references must: Be on the headed paper of the institution at which the applicant studied with an official stamp. The reference should indicate the name of the company/institution to which the referee is affiliated as well as their position and relationship to the applicant. As noted above, the referee should attest to the academic ability of the student and their general character and suitability for their chosen course of study.

What other documentation should I provide together with my application form?

Please complete an application form from the College recruitment team – enquiries@gcmalta.com. A list of documents that you will need to provide with your application is provided on the College’s application form.

What does the application process involve? What should I do to apply?

You should complete the application form in full and ensure that the information that you have provided in your application is clear, legible and accurate. You must also present a copy of either your passport (international students) or ID Card (Maltese residents/ locals). In addition, you will need to provide official documentary proof of the original copies of your degrees, diplomas and any other qualifications you may have. These certificates must be presented upon enrollment at the start of your chosen course. You must complete the paper/online application form (this can be downloaded from our website) and send it to the Admissions Office at Global College Malta either directly, or through an authorized agent. Please ensure that all required sections are completed in full. The application form may be sent either by regular post, by courier, by email or delivered in person.

Please ensure that you have enclosed all the required documents (see checklist given in the application form) along with the application form itself. Incomplete applications will unnecessarily delay your application process. Full details of all requirements are set out on the application form itself.

A decision on your application will be communicated to you as soon as possible. If you are accepted onto a College course, an offer of a place of study will be made and you will be invited to accept the offer. In the event that your application is unsuccessful, you will receive a rejection letter setting out the reasons why your application has been unsuccessful.

In some cases an offer to study on a course offered the College may be conditional. Where this is the case you will be informed of any additional requirements that you will need to evidence before an unconditional offer of a place can be made. In this case please liaise closely with the College’s Admissions staff to ensure that all conditions can be satisfied as quickly as possible thereby enabling you to enroll on your chosen course.
