For you, that you have projects in mind and maybe you are thinking about coming to study in Malta. I encourage you to do it. Malta is one of the best countries you could choose to study in Europe. There are so many advantages of choosing the island as your study destination.

It's a great place to improve your English as it is the official language along with the Maltese. But everybody on the island speaks English. Moreover, you will find an international environment as many people from different parts of the world come to study or work here. The island offers many job opportunities. With just around 4% of the population unemployed.

On top of that, it is known to be one of the safest countries in Europe, being ranked second globally and first in Europe, back in 2019. And we can’t skip the amazing Mediterranean climate you will enjoy if you come to the island, with a hot and dry summer with temperatures reaching 32ºC in July and August. And a winter that is mild and wet, and with temperatures that only drop to around 10-12 °C during December to February.

With all of that being said, let’s get to THE question. You came here to study. You finish your studies and now, what happens? Internships happen. Internships can be a bridge between your studies and your dream job. They are a great way to boost your CV, to learn and grow in what you have studied and gain experience in your field.

Today we are going to talk about the kind of internships you can find if you come to study on this beautiful and charming island in Europe. Something else to add is that Malta offers a more affordable and different alternative for students who want to study in Europe but are hesitant about other countries which are not that affordable and they don’t have the gifts Malta has to offer, like the Mediterranean climate or amazing nature spots to explore, among other things.

Internships duration can range from just a few weeks up to 6 months, with a maximum duration of 12 months. And they can be an optional or mandatory, depending on what degree you study.

There are companies that will compensate you in an economical way but usually internships are not paid. Although the main goal of doing an internship is to gain work experience, in a Maltese company in this case, within different sectors. Due to the business world competition that we experience nowadays, to do unpaid internships has become an essential part of someone’s professional development and an important value for each student’s career.

Additionally, internships are a perfect way for improving your English in a real work environment. As an intern you will be involved in different tasks and projects that will give you the chance to experience a new energising and multicultural environment.

Which fields can you look for when doing an internship in Malta? Tourism is one of the main industries on the island, so it would be easier for you to find an internship in that field. But it’s not the only one.

Here is a list of the main fields where you can find internships after studying on the island:
