Malta, an English-speaking country at the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, is a rich cultural melting pot. Over the centuries people from a variety of diverse cultures have mixed together in Malta, sharing their traditions, history and knowledge. UCM provides many opportunities for students and lecturers to experience this unique multicultural environment. Beyond the temperate weather the island is a safe location to live in. The number of leading international institutions has been on the rise ever since the Government of Malta adopted active strategies to attract these to the Maltese shores, making the country the place to be for international students.
