International Students

Why should you study in Malta?

With its rich history and Mediterranean climate, Malta is the perfect spot for your studies. Students from all over the globe come here to study English since it is one of our official languages and everyone on the island speaks it!  Even though Malta is a small island, our importance for education is far greater in size. The Malta Leadership Institute was founded to create courses for people who would like to further themselves or their careers. We are dedicated to seeing you succeed.

Why is Malta an excellent hub for education?

Malta’s educational standards have always been high; therefore, we promote education as much as we can amongst each other and internationally, with you. Our educators have been professionals for quite some time and are at the top of their game when it comes to their fields. Malta’s education system has been highly ranked in Europe therefore it has produced many professionals who we are lucky to have at our institute. We cater for everyone and believe that different learning methodologies are suitable for different modules.

You will not only be studying here but you will also be meeting new people (local & international) who are interested in the same things you are! Events across the island are held for those who would like to practice their English with fellow international students in order to help them in their studies. So do not worry if you feel that perhaps your English is not that great, as you will be practising when reading and discussing your chosen modules in class and outside of it!

Where should I stay while living in Malta?

Malta is considered to be a very safe country so where you should stay is entirely up to you. Of course, the closer you are to the institute (which is in Birkirkara), the better, as this makes your commute less time-consuming. The closest places for you to stay would be Ħamrun, St. Venera, Msida and last but not least, Valletta, the capital city of Malta. Ultimately, it’s your decision so have a look at your budget or see if you know anyone who lives on the island, who can host you for the first couple of months. Furthermore, our staff members are always ready to help you if you’re finding it difficult to find suitable accommodation.

Visa Requirements


First and foremost, you need to do is determine the length of your stay and what is your nationality. If you come from a country that is a member of the European Union, then do not fret because you do not need a visa to come study (pending on acceptance) for up to 90 days. If you are a non-EU prospective student, you can come study in Malta without a visa if you will be enrolling in a short-term course. If not, you do not need to worry because MLI (Malta Leadership Institute) will take care of everything for you.

International students must apply through the following link:

After verifying and vetting the application, if students meet the eligibility requirements of the course, they will be invited for an    online interview.

If students pass from the interview, a conditional letter of acceptance will be issued. Also, a non-refundable registration fee of  €250 must be paid.

Once the prospective student is ready to submit the visa application, a 50% deposit of the course fee, in case of BA (Hons) in Business Leadership a semester fee, must be paid. Subsequently, supporting documents related to the visa will be provided. Students will have the opportunity to discuss related queries or difficulties regarding this process in an online  meeting.

If the visa is accepted, you may proceed to Malta for the course after paying the remaining fees. If the visa is refused, the 50% deposit of the course fee will be refunded, except for the €250 registration fee.
