Study for a medical degree in Malta

Our five-year  offers you the same curriculum as that taught at the Barts medical school in London.

Students are awarded a Medicine MBBS from Queen Mary University of London (Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry).  

Study with one of the best UK medical schools

Students are taught in Malta by staff from Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry (Queen Mary University of London’s medical faculty) and local clinicians trained by the School. You’ll gain the Barts and The London medicine undergraduate experience while living in the Mediterranean. It’s a great place to study medicine abroad.

UK General Medical Council

The GMC recognises bodies to award primary medical qualifications and the process has started to quality assure the QMUL Malta Programme and its first undergraduate medicine programme. This takes the form of a year by year review following the first cohort to graduation. Only during the final year of the programme will the GMC be able to confirm the programme meets the GMC standards outlined in Promoting excellence: standards in medical education and training.  There can be no guarantee that this will be the outcome of the quality assurance process and the QMUL Malta programme has contingency arrangements in place with the home university programme of QMUL in London, so that students enrolled in the programme who are successfully passing all assessments, will be able to complete their studies and graduate with a GMC recognised medical qualification.

World Directory of Medical Schools

We are proud to be listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools, developed through a partnership between the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) and the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER). 

Learning and teaching: clinical experience from the start

Our problem-based learning (PBL) produces doctors trained in thinking strategies along with subject knowledge which is further enhanced through early clinical placements. The programme places considerable emphasis on developing your expertise in a whole range of practical areas, including clinical, communication, observation, team work and management skills.

MBBS  is a Queen Mary University of London degree which is recognised in many countries around the world. However, we still ask that all candidates applying for MBBS contact their respective Medical Council/Ministry of Health to check whether the degree is accepted and recognised in their home country. Written confirmation is advised.
