The Maltese Government is pushing technologies such as gaming, eSports, cryptocurrencies, blockchain and Artificial Intelligence as the way forward. Apart from these initiatives, the established industries, such as iGaming, financial services and manufacturing are starved for ICT specialists. To this end, the Malta Development Bank, supported by the Government of Malta is offering prospective students the opportunity to read for a diploma or degree without any payments during the study period.

The Studies+ Scheme provides 100 per cent financial assistance for the duration of the studies. Students don’t have to make any payments while they are studying, starting to make monthly payments when in employment.

Upon successful completion, students will also be eligible for a total of €16,000 in income tax rebate, on condition they are working in Malta.

In a tracer study carried out by Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education, a staggering 42.6 per cent of the Institute’s ICT graduates earn well over €30,000 annually, with 80 per cent of alumni promoted to a managerial position soon after graduation.

The official median salary paid in Malta is of €19,390 as recorded in the Labour Force Survey for the last quarter of 2018, an increase of €2,000 over the past year. The survey also shows close to 9,000 individuals are employed in the ICT sector in Malta and showed a growth of 2,000 new jobs generated in this industry in just one year with a higher average salary of €22,000.
