100 University Of Malta Master’s & PhD Scholarships 2024/2025 For International Students – Malta


Deserving students who successfully complete the admission process and who may not have the means to cover full tuition fees will be considered for full or partial fee waivers through a rigorous selection process. The University of Malta seeks to attract top quality students from countries outside the European Union/EEA and is offering tuition fee waivers of 40 to 100 per cent awarded to most deserving students. Bench fees for certain programmes may still apply. The fee waiver will apply for the normal duration of the programme being followed. If extensions of the period of study are required, these may not necessarily be eligible for a fee waiver.

A total of 100 scholarships will be awarded split over two schemes:

  • Ph.D. and Masters Programmes (mainly by research *)

  • Masters Programmes (mainly taught **)

Up to 50 scholarships will be made available to deserving students, from non-EU/EEA countries, who are accepted to read for a Ph.D. or Masters (mainly by research) programme at the University of Malta.

Up to 50 scholarships will be offered to non- EU/EEA nationals to pursue Master’s Degree programmes that are mainly taught (where the taught component is assigned 60 ECTS credits or more).


  • Scholarships covering tuition fees of up to 100% shall be awarded to deserving applicants. Where applicable, bench fees may also be included.

  • Students will have to ensure that they have the means to support themselves throughout their studies in Malta and to cover expenses related to travel, accommodation and other living expenses, insurance, visa and residence permit, academic and other expenses that will be incurred throughout their course of studies.


  • To qualify for these scholarships, candidates must not be in receipt of a full scholarship (tuition fees and living costs) from another sponsoring institution or organisation. However, an applicant who holds a partial scholarship or maintenance grant to cover living costs from another institution may be considered. Such a scholarship or grant should be disclosed to the Selection Board when applying.

  • Candidates accepted for Joint Degrees, Joint Programmes, International or Collaborative Masters, Professional Masters, Professional Doctorates and other Masters programmes offered on a part-time basis are not eligible for these scholarships.

Deadline: 31st October 2023
