cant comment on socials much given the covid affected year, but when restrictions weren't present it was largely pleasant. most the people you meet here will be friendly and welcoming. with regards to the living situation it can get quite boring at times as there isn't much to do in gozo, but that may just be due to covid so take it with a pinch of salt. if you are bothered about that, you can opt to visit malta (the main island) every so often, where there's much more to do. online shopping is pretty much a no go as the shipping will tear your wallet a new one. the studying experience is quite nice, though some lectures may be a bit **** at times, this comes w every uni. the facilities in the uni are quite modern, although it is quite small (you'll find this doesn't matter much as it's quite a small cohort anyway).
Thank you that’s very useful. I’m planning to start the course in September 2021 I guess you have been studying there for long? How was placement prior to COVID ? And how are the lectures in general? Would you recommend the programme overall? Thanks in advance

well i'm a first year currently so i havent actually had any in person placements yet due to covid. the lectures are mostly ok but there are a few that are ****. however as a barts malta student you have access to both the london and malta lectures, which is a major benefit of this course as you essentially have two lectures to pick from most of the time. i think the programme is quite a unique experience, personally i would recommend it, but it largely depends on what you want from your uni experience. studying on a small island may not be for you, and neither might the small cohort size, but personally i feel both help with focus which is quite important in studying medicine. the small cohort size helps you form a closer connection with lecturers, and allows them to be much more available to help, but at the same time there's quite few people and this limits what you can do socially. i feel however as more new students come in this problem will be quickly fixed however, bearing in mind we only have around 200? students in total currently and i'm guessing the next intake should be around 100 students. do bear in mind these are my personal views though!!

another reason i'm recommending it is because rent is ridiculously affordable. you can easily rent a nice apartment in victoria, where the uni is, for 600 euros, which can get even cheaper if you choose to split it with someone else.

Interesting thank you! ☺️May I ask are you a graduate or undergraduate? I am a Uk graduate with experience in the nhs I am looking for a course that is very comprehensive knowledge wise I mean with good lectures and lecturers so I was hoping to find this in Malta? The small cohort and the social aspect of it I think I would like

i'm an undergrad. i think with the lectures it's a mixed bag, some lectures are good, and in the ones that are bad there's always the option to view the london lectures, which gives quite a bit of flexibility
