    Coronavirus (COVID-19): Middlesex University Malta information

    For new students in 2020

    This is a concerning time for everyone, so we want you to know we're doing everything we can to limit any impact the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has on studying at Middlesex University Malta and that we're still committed to welcoming you to #TeamMDX in 2020.

    We understand there will be an impact on both local and international applicants in many different ways, while the situation keeps changing every day:

    • We have made no changes to the start of the autumn term as currently scheduled but we are reviewing the external environment. We shall keep you informed in this respect.
    • We will continue to give equal consideration to all applications regardless of where you are from, or where you live.
    • The Malta government shall be issuing visa advice once airspace and airports have been opened. We shall keep you informed in this respect

    In the meantime, we encourage you to continue with your admission process.

    For students with a conditional offer we'll allow you to delay submitting supporting documents.

    English Language Requirements

    We do still require you to complete an English language assessment if this is part of your offer, but we accept a wide range of tests as proof of eligibility, some of which are sat for completely online.

    Those students who hold an unconditional offer we advise you to proceed with your first tuition fees instalment so as soon as we get the all clear from the authorities you can apply for your visa. In case the situation is not resolved, the fees will be fully refunded.

    We get it though; you probably still have a lot of questions. Please do not hesitate to contact our admissions team on admissionsmalta@mdx.ac.uk and we will endeavour to answer you as soon as possible.

    Our Students

    Our priority is to keep you safe during this time and to give you the support that you need.

    We're all in this together, and together we can protect our community as well as the communities around us.

    Services on campus

    Following Government guidelines about staying at home, the campus is currently closed.

    • All face-to-face support for you has now moved online
    • All adminstritive services are available online via adminmalta@mdx.ac.uk
    • We are finalising our plans to make sure that we can continue to assess you and award degrees.
    • We have made the decision to offer an automatic deferral to any student who is unable to undertake an assessment at the first opportunity. You won’t need to submit an extenuating circumstances claim for this.
    • This will include alternative methods of assessment. For modules where an alternative is not possible, we’ll carefully manage any physical assessment. You’ll get more details about this soon. We are suspending all University public events and gatherings.

    Graduation 2020

    We’ve postponed the UK ceremonies because of the latest government advice about the coronavirus and, in particular, the advice to avoid large gatherings. We believe that this is the right choice for you and for your families and guests, and we don’t want our students or guests incurring graduation costs at this time of uncertainty.

    The Malta Graduation is still pending government directives.

    Will I still receive my degree certificate?

    Yes. We will produce and despatch certificates to eligible graduands. The postponement of graduation will not cause delays to the issuing of certificates (subject to normal services being available).

    Will the ceremonies be re-arranged?

    We aim to offer all graduands the opportunity to attend a ceremony in the future, when the position is clearer and it is safe to do so.

    How will I be contacted about resheduled ceremonies?

    We will contact you directly via your personal email address, so please make sure that we have your correct contact details.
