Socialising is an important part of the learning experience. Make the most of our multi-cultural international environment by befriending other students and making the most of your free time!

We provide students with an interesting choice of activities for our socio-cultural programme, which vary from historical and cultural tours to more exciting activities such as diving and horse riding. Our programme changes weekly, so keep an eye on the notice board to stay up to date with the latest plans.

The island offers plenty of opportunities for recreational activities, destinations for day trips and sightseeing tours for all ages.

The fine sandy beaches and crystal clear waters invite you to swim and relax. Organised water sports tours such as windsurfing, water skiing and canoeing are offered, since the shimmering water world of Malta is always worth a trip.

Some of the well-preserved historic districts date back to 5200 B.C. just waiting to be re-discovered.

    Malta’s climate is typical of the Mediterranean and is strongly influenced by the sea. The Maltese Islands have a pleasantly sunny climate with a daily average of around 12 hours of sunshine in summer, going down to 5 to 6 hours in mid-winter. Annual rainfall is low, averaging 568mm a year. Swimming in the sea is quite possible well into the ‘winter’ months, and the peak beach season can last until mid to late October.
