Health & Education

Schools & Childcare

Malta provides an excellent standard of education. Children can be educated in one of the private international schools, or enrolled in the local state, church or independent schools. All schools use the British model of education, which is compulsory between the ages of five and 16. Most expats and cosmopolitan locals send their children to private schools. Leading schools are San Andrea School, San Anton School, Chiswick House School, St Martin’s College, St Edward’s College and Verdala International School. Tertiary-level education is offered through the University of Malta, as well as other institutes and private colleges. Childcare centres are run by the state, the church and private organisations. If both parents are working, childcare services are free. Kindergarten is not compulsory in Malta, but English-speaking kindergarten and pre-school facilities are widely available.



Malta has one of the best health services in the world. The main general hospital is the state-of-the-art Mater Dei Hospital in Msida, while most towns and villages have their own state-run medical clinics. Malta also has several private clinics and hospitals, such as the renowned St James Hospital in Sliema. EU nationals resident in Malta are eligible to receive free medical treatment at public hospitals and clinics, but foreign residents are still advised to take out private medical insurance. EU food and beverage standards are strictly monitored in Malta, but it is still recommended to drink bottled, rather than tap water.
