Full-Time Student €0 per month

The SMIFlexiPay™ Scheme works out through a special Bank of Valletta interest free fund available to Saint Martin’s Institute registered students. The fund will settle all the tuition fees that are usually payable over three academic years whilst reading for your degree, without asking you for repayments until after you finish with your studies.

Evening Student €55 per month

In the case you are a student who opts to study whilst keeping your full time job, the SMIFlexiPay™ scheme still applies, but small monthly payments are due from the first month of your studies whilst your tuition fees for the year are settled in full through the fund.

Business, Entrepreneurship and Finance Information

We are very much aware how easily students may be distracted from the attention and commitment necessary to succeed in todays fast paced world. The department is very conscious of the continuously changing environment of computing and the very short response time in which individuals need to re- invent themselves to be able to cope with the evolution of computing and its social impact. The department follows the famous Delors principles in education and provides students with the pertinent knowledge in computing and the ancillary disciplines, mentors students to develop the ability to use their knowledge thus maturing their skills, ascertains the interpersonal skills necessary to work effectively in functioning teams at the place of work and finally inspires the ability to self-develop.

Learn how to learn

Although all four principles, as proposed by Delors, should have equal weighting, the ability of an individual student to learn independently is given even more importance at Saint Martin’s Institute.  It is not enough that the faculty oversees the development of a student through the programme to prepare for a job or a career change. It is the creed of the Institute that a student transforms / develops into any requirements of the future, thus becoming a life-long learner and employable over the long term.  The transfer of knowledge is done through scheduled lectures and tutorials, supported by prepared materials available over the Saint Martin's Institute virtual learning environment.  Students will be assessed through unseen written examinations and home assignments to help the faculty gauge the absorption of knowledge by the student and the ability to apply the knowledge in real life scenarios.
