The University of Malta has launched a series of webinars which are aimed at prospective students who intend to start their tertiary education journey in October 2020.

Through these webinars, prospective students will get the chance to have their queries addressed. This newly launched initiative by the University’s Student Advisory Services comes in view of the current coronavirus outbreak, with the University opting to host webinars to guide prospective students and explain changes which are relevant to them.

The webinars will be held over Zoom and require participants to register. Upon registration prospective students will receive a link to the virtual meeting room and the meeting ID.

The sessions will be facilitated by SAS staff members Christine Briffa, Lorleen Farrugia and Noel Caruana, together with their colleagues from Junior College Giosue Pianciamore and Roberto Calleja, and colleagues from the Admissions Office Graziella Scicluna and Marco Tabone.

The University of Malta will hold another set of webinars after the first four webinars which will see the participation of 200 prospective students, were fully booked. 50 participants are allowed per webinar, giving students the opportunity to ask questions.

“At SAS we were already having discussions about how to develop the use of technology to increase the range of the services we offer. The outbreak of COVID-19 has helped us make this leap and although in the beginning it took some time to get used to, we are glad to say that all our services have been running smoothly online for about two months now. It’s business as usual for us, just in a different format”, said Ms Lorleen Farrugia.

The updated information on admissions is available online, and so is further information about the Admissions process.

One-on-one meetings with a Student Advisor can also be scheduled via email.
