Why Study in Malta?
Located in the center of the Mediterranean, between Europe and North Africa, Malta is the European Union's smallest member state. Famous for its 7,000-year history and 300 days of sunshine, Malta has emerged as one of the most remarkable success stories in the Eurozone. Recognized for its pro-business attitude, state-of-the-art infrastructure and modest costs of doing business, it has become the go-to country for growth-minded entrepreneurs and multinational companies.
The American University of Malta (AUM) merges the best of both worlds in terms of academic standards and accreditation. All programs are designed by a professional faculty board so as to comply with American Education standards at the tertiary level.

AUM is located in Bormla, also known as Cospicua, one of Malta’s iconic Three Cities. The area is rich in culture, varied history and restaurants and cafés by the beautiful waterfront. Our campus, originally designed by William Scamp, was used during World War II as a British naval base. Heavily bombed during this period, the building was left in ruins for many years. The restoration process included efforts to keep the historic preservation of artifacts within the building.
