University Shuts its Doors for One Week from Tomorrow

Posted On March 12, 2020

The Prime Minister, Roberta Abela, has just announced that all schools, including the University of Malta shall be closed for one week due to COVID-19.

All schools, including child care centres and churches are to be closed pending a revision at the end of next week. This is a preventative measure to inhibit the spread of COVID-19 which has now claimed its ninth person in Malta.

Student organisations have been rallying to close schools for a few days now. KSU released a statement earlier today which agreed that University should close on the provision that lectures continue in an online forum.

Students should await instructions from their lecturers to see if their regular lectures will now be online or stopped all together.
