The University of Malta seeks to attract top quality students from countries outside the European Union/EEA for whom the University's Master by research and Ph.D. programmes may be beyond their financial reach. Tuition fee waivers of up to 100 per cent shall be awarded to deserving students. Bench fees for certain programmes may still apply. The fee waiver will apply for the normal duration of the programme being followed. If extensions of the period of study are required, these may not necessarily be eligible for a fee waiver.

Only applicants who have been accepted unconditionally to read for a Master by research or a Ph.D. on a full-time and part-time basis are eligible to apply.

Professional doctorates and MBA-type programmes are not eligible.

* Master Programmes 'mainly by research' refers to programmes where the dissertation/project is assigned 60 ECTS or more.
Within one month of receipt of the unconditional letter of acceptance, interested students are to submit a request to be considered for a fee waiver by sending an email to the International Office indicating the Applicant ID as shown in the letter of acceptance and ‘University of Malta Postgraduate Scholarship Application’ in the subject line.

The following documents should be attached to the application email:
(a) detailed Curriculum Vitae, and
(b) a motivational letter.

Requests for these scholarships will be evaluated by a UM Ph.D. and Masters (by research) Degree Scholarship Selection Board whose decision shall be final.

The selection criteria are as follows:

(a) academic ability of the applicant,
(b) quality of the Research Proposal, and
(c) quality of the motivational letter.

The Selection Board may interview applicants (via the internet if necessary).

Scholarship applications from students who have already started their programme of studies at the UM cannot be considered.

Requests will be evaluated quarterly and applicants will be informed of the outcome soon after.

The University of Malta will provide the selected candidates full tuition fee, 100%, or partial tuition fee, 10%to 90%, considering all aspects of the candidates from academics to interests to nationality.
