But, with the right approach and information, you can turn these challenges into opportunities and make your Erasmus in Malta even more memorable. 

Are you planning or pondering this journey? In this comprehensive guide, you’ll find all you need as a starting point to understanding the ins and outs of paving the way for unforgettable months ahead. 

Understanding Erasmus 

But first, what is Erasmus exactly? 

Erasmus is a European exchange programme allowing students from all over Europe to study abroad for a few months up to a year. 

Established in 1987, this programme allows students to expose themselves to different countries, cultures, and languages. It’s also an enriching experience building bridges of friendship while fostering individual and societal growth. 

The programme doesn’t just equip students with academic knowledge and skill sets. It’s a transformative journey that gives students invaluable memories and an open-minded outlook, one that celebrates and cherishes diversity and inclusion.

Erasmus in Malta: What to do and see 

Malta boasts a rich history and cultural heritage and a thriving day-and-night scene, which can be enjoyed in its predominantly mild and warm weather throughout the year.

This enchanting island nation has something for everyone, especially those interested in exploring its many wonders, history, and local culture. 

Starting with Valletta — Malta’s UNESCO-listed capital city. Here, you can marvel at the stunning architecture, cobblestone streets, historic fortifications, and museums. You’ll also find Caravaggio’s masterpiece, ‘Beheading of St. John the Baptist’, in the Oratory of the Co-Cathedral of St. John — a must-see for all art enthusiasts.

Beyond its sun-kissed beaches and crystal-clear waters, island life in Malta encapsulates life in its seaside towns, such as the bustling Marsaxlokk fish market and the vibrant festivities of local festivals.

But that’s not it. At night, Malta changes its face entirely and reveals its renowned nightlife. The island offers endless possibilities to dance the night away, from bustling bars to open-air clubs.

ESN Malta: Your Erasmus social compass

Socialising is an integral part of your Erasmus experience. ESN (Erasmus Student Network) Malta is the key to experiencing the local culture and events such as tours, parties and nights out, and opportunities to connect with fellow international students.

However, ESN Malta goes beyond the fun and games. It’s also a supportive community that understands the struggles that come with your Erasmus experience. This is why they provide assistance, support, and advice to international students to ensure a smooth transition into this new chapter — making it a focal point during your study abroad experience.
