TALKS have been held between Gibraltar’s Minister for Education and education chiefs in Malta with a view to establishing collaboration between the University of Gibraltar and the University of Malta.
Gilbert Licudi, QC, attended meetings in Malta in connection with the University of Gibraltar with Professor Juanito Camilleri, Rector of the University of Malta, about various areas of collaboration, including in the area of Mediterranean Studies. Licudi also attended talks in London to strengthen links with Kingston University.
“All the meetings held in London and in Malta have been part of the preparation necessary for the opening of the University of Gibraltar and for the future development of the university,” he said.
“The meetings have allowed an exchange of views as well as the development of valuable links with those already engaged in Higher Education. We have been provided not just with useful and encouraging advice based on experience but also with a willingness to assist us in any way and to collaborate with the University of Gibraltar on joint projects. The more we discuss our plans with others, the more exciting the university project becomes.”
Licudi also met with Charles Theuma, the principal of St Martin’s Institute of Higher Education, which offers a number of courses as part of the University of London’s international programme. There are plans by the University of Gibraltar to offer University of London programmes.
The University of Gibraltar is scheduled to open in September at Europa Point with a large atrium as its focal point.
