Established in 1592, the University of Malta is the oldest university in the Commonwealth outside the United Kingdom and is Malta's only university. The present campus, opened in 1968, has recently been greatly extended to include theater-type lecture rooms and science, language and computer laboratories. The sports complex includes an Olympic-sized swimming pool and separate diving pool, a football ground, tennis courts, and a track. Total enrollment: 8,000 students.

ISEP-Exchange programs allow students to participate in reciprocal exchanges with students at ISEP member institutions worldwide, while paying their home university tuition. Students attending US universities that are ISEP-Exchange members are eligible to apply for these programs at other international ISEP-Exchange member universities. Chances of placement vary by location.

ISEP-Direct programs allow students to enroll directly in a host institution abroad, instead of exchanging places with another student. Chances of placement are typically excellent for qualified applicants and some sites offer special academic programs and excursions. Students attending US universities that are either ISEP-Exchange members or ISEP-Direct members can participate in ISEP-Direct programs abroad.
