The sun, the sea, the flow of tourists…

This is a characteristic of the Maltese Islands during some of the busiest times of the year.

However, tourism is more than just that!

Beyond the summer months, Malta enjoys a flow of tourists during other parts of the year, as well as various sectors need to work hand in hand to provide a holistic experience to those visiting. This entails that the tourism industry needs to be in tip top shape, 365 days a year!


The Institute for Tourism, Travel & Culture at the University of Malta is offering a course in Tourism Studies which will give an interdisciplinary and sound education in this area. The skills and knowledge that are required to help shape the future leaders in this service area is at the heart of this 3 year course at Bachelor’s Degree level.
