Why choose to study with the University of London in Malta at Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education?

The very simple answer is value for money #valuED

There are three characteristics that determine the value of a degree;

  1. The reputation enjoyed by the University that is awarding the degree. The reputation is developed over many years of excellence in teaching, research and graduates’ smooth progression to the workplace and/or further studies. A number of globally recognized ranking systems exist that determine which are the best Universities for consideration.
  2. The teaching pedagogy and methodology adopted by the University. Especially at undergraduate level, academics may be to engrossed in the research and dissemination in conferences, leaving no time to mentor their undergraduate students.
  3. The adaptability of the curriculum to the future. Universities do not teach for the present but must have an eye on the future. A 17 year old man or woman embarking on an undergraduate degree has a long future to look forward to, and the degree curriculum must be designed in such a way to clear a life-long path for success at the work place.
And a very important aspect is the cost of reading for the undergraduate degree! A top class degree may be excellent on all three characteristics described above, yet be so expensive to be beyond the reach of those individuals who may make good use of such an education! Because let’s be frank, the rich will continue to enjoy their good fortune, with or without an undergraduate degree …

A good degree is known to open new avenues for individuals in the middle and lower strata of society, because it provides opportunities to get a leg up in corporate life, and start a chain reaction that will help the graduate be self sustaining and independent, and also be of direct assistance to their inner family members and community. Higher Education may revolutionize a society, building a Country’s economy and its capability to generate wealth.

The University of London through its member colleges is one of the most prestigious Universities globally

The University of London’s reputation for academic excellence builds upon the outstanding teaching and research of the Member Institutions over the decades ever since 1836 when Queen Victoria conferred upon the University its first Royal Charter. In 1858 the University received a second charter, allowing it to offer the opportunity for students (mostly military personnel) posted throughout the world, to read for University of London degrees without necessarily attending classes in London. The University of London provides its portfolio of undergraduate degrees through its Affiliate Institute in Malta, Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education, a licensed higher education institution by the National Commission for Further and Higher Education.

Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education evaluated to surpass expectations in student centred learning by the External Quality Assurance Audit Team of the NCFHE in its report of June 2017.

This is what the Quality Assurance Audit Report says about the Institute’s values when it comes to students’ well-being;

SMI prides itself on its personal and individualised approach. Students enjoy close interaction with all members of staff at all levels and see themselves as peers in the learning process. There is a conscious and concerted effort on the part of all lecturers to provide students with relevant and timely feedback.
The school organizes a periodic student consultation day, where each student may sit down with staff members, and discuss his or her individual performance in a structured manner, outside of the constraints of an examination.
The institution’s use of its VLE clearly enhances the learning experience, and furthermore is at a reasonably advanced level of sophistication considering the limitations of the institution in terms of size.
The institution organizes an annual careers day, which takes a ‘speed dating’ format with employers. The opportunity gives students invaluable job-interview practice, leads to some of them receiving offers and is also appreciated by employers as a unique opportunity to find qualified hires. This forms part of an overall culture at the institute of strongly encouraging students to enter the workforce, even during studies.

And this is further corroborated with the exceptional results that the Institute’s students achieve when sitting for University of London examinations.
