Results are out …

Education is all about stretching oneself and trying to do your very best in a limited time frame to impress a panel of examiners! When the results are published there is always that moment of apprehension for students and their teachers about whether the work put in during the year will bear the desired results. And hopefully, soon after one experiences an outburst of sheer elation and joy on achieving what is expected and wished for.

An Institution that has as its main value a pure joy towards educating and teaching others!

We wish to congratulate ALL our students who again make us proud through their achievements and place Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education as one of the major teaching institutions in the University of London global network.

Calibrating academic effort

Institutions such as Saint Martin’s find the issuance of results by an independent and authoritative examining body such as the University of London as very important to be able to assess its progress in preparing students towards their careers. Learning is the accumulation of knowledge and competences, and Saint Martin’s has mustered a team of top class academics who can assimilate a syllabus that prepares successful graduates for the needs of the work place. The fact that the Institute’s students are assessed by the University examining boards means that students are being challenged to compete with the best students the world over, and not simply competing inwardly among this minute population in Malta.

As an Institute we have quality education at heart. If you wish to know more about how quality assurance in education is developing in Malta, you may wish to read further on the subject by clicking here.

Universities and Institutions do not fashion their syllabus simply upon the present demands of employers, but academic institutions build their curriculum keeping in mind that students will be graduating after three to five years, and the market will have dramatically changed by the time they join the work force.
