Social Program
An absolutely fun-packed social program is another factor which attracts students from all over the globe from one year to the next. The social program is aimed at allowing students to soak as much of the Maltese culture as possible with events including the Welcome BBQ, trips to the famous Blue Lagoon in Comino, Gozo, Valletta, Mdina treasure hunt and much more. We will also allow you to indulge in Maltese cuisine by taking you for a traditional "Fenkata" and we will allow you to experience night-life in Paceville. This social program will however only be available during the months of July and August. During the other months however the exchange students will meet Maltese students who will still allow them to indulge in Maltese culture!

Special documents
Upon Arrival documents
The standard documents are the basic documents that the students are asking for and the special documents are less important, as only some Local Committees ask for them. So it's mandatory to upload the standard documents, but not the special ones. (Students do it when asked for by the LEO/NEO.)
The upon arrival documents are hard copies documents that the students are requested to take with them in the host country.”
