As Malta is an English speaking country many students opt to study in Malta either on an Erasmus exchange for one semester or an academic year and some also opt to study at the University of Malta as a full time student. English is the language of instruction at the University of Malta.
It is also a popular destination with students on a Medical elective with students from as far away as Australia and New Zealand completing their electives in Malta.
AirMalta offers University or College students travelling to study an extra allowance of 20Kg of luggage for free.
You will need to submit your student card and give the details of the course you are studying including start and end date as proof that you are travelling to study.
Erasmus students as well as students on a Medical elective are eligible for the free luggage allowance on AirMalta flights.
