Queen Mary in Malta

Ms Fiona Wilson

Director of Operations

Room Number: Malta Campus


Having lived and worked in over nine countries on four continents, I can confidently say that Malta is one the easiest places I have ever lived in. With English as the official second language, an excellent reputation for healthcare and safety, welcoming nationals, an incredible mix of history, culture, and of course, warm weather. To my mind, Malta has it all.


My role as Director of Operations with Queen Mary University of London Malta campus is operationally complex, dynamic, and strategic, all of which makes it extremely varied. I lead the campus on external relations, stakeholder and partnership development, facilities management, HR, finance, marketing and admissions, student engagement, student support, business development, and community engagement, as well as ensuring that we have daily liaison with the main university in London. No day is ever the same, and the constantly evolving landscape ensures that there is always a challenge waiting to be met and an opportunity to ensure we exceed our mandate.

I brought over 30 years’ experience to the role, which had been gained in higher education management, marketing, partnership working, and campus development in the UK, the Caribbean, in Europe, and across the Middle East. I have been fortunate to work within such prestigious and diverse organisations as a Scottish university export partnership, the overseas branch campuses of two UK universities, an Emirati university, the European Space Agency, and the Sultan of Oman’s Armed Forces.

With an MBA and a Bachelor degree in Political Science, I am a Board-level director. Focusing on the education side of my background, I am fortunate to have extensive experience in international campus development, strategic and operational planning, external relations, quality enhancement, accreditation, marketing, student recruitment, enrolment management, and student and alumni engagement.

Born in Africa, educated in the UK, I have since spent most of my career working internationally. This is my second time living in Malta, and both moves were due to the many positive factors that attracted to me to the island. From the ancient city of Mdina on the main island of Malta to the tranquility of Gozo, this is my current home.
