TOP 5 UNIVERSITIES TO STUDY IN MALTA WITHOUT IELTS.
Education in Malta reflects the continent’s importance for many years. Universities and colleges in Malta have been an attraction to many students willing to study in Malta. More than 15% of students in Maltese universities and colleges have come from other countries for education. It is an outstanding place to study and experience a new student life, but what comes to your mind when you think about moving to Malta for studies??.... Yes, you are right you will mostly think about its English Language Proficiency test score.
When students are thinking of applying for higher studies in colleges and universities in Malta, one of the toughest barriers to overcome for admission into a good university is the English Language Proficiency test score requirement. It can be any other English test that measures the ability of a student to read, to write and to speak English. As well, if you have not been able to clear the exam at the first try, it not only increases to further expenses but will also waste your time. Expectedly, most of the international students who are from non-English speaking backgrounds who had a very little training in the language, securing a good score in these tests can prove to be a challenge. Almost every college and university has their own satisfactory TOEFL/IELTS score and almost every course in these colleges and universities require a standard for international students’ qualification to study for that course.
So the question most of the students spar with is whether a TOEFL/IELTS or any English Proficiency scores is mandatory for admission into universities or colleges in Malta. To this end, we say a huge NO! Yes, you do not need to give IELTS or any English Proficiency Test for Malta. Students can study In Malta without IELTS with the Medium of Instruction letter (MOI) to take admission in their desired courses, A Medium of Instruction letter is a document that confirms the language of instruction used throughout your last degree or education programme.
