(iv) Understand the local customs 

  • Women in Malta are equal to men and should always be treated fairly. 

  • Maltese people talk to strangers in public areas. This is a great way to practice English, but caution should be taken. You should not give out your address and telephone number or accept inappropriate invitations. 

  • “Please” and “thank you” are very important words! Always use them if you ask someone to do something for you or if they help you or give you information.  

  • Malta is a culturally diverse nation where people of all ethnic backgrounds are treated equally.  

  • Tipping is customary in Malta and a gratuity of between 5% and 10%, whenever good service has been provided, is reasonable. However, if a service charge has already been included in the bill, a tip is not necessary. If discretion and common sense is used, you will have no problems with tipping, but it is always worth checking the individual establishment’s policy if you are unsure. 

(v) Health and safety come first 

  • Medical insurance: All TCN (third-country nationals) students must have medical insurance for the duration of their stay in Malta. They can either book medical insurance offered by English Path or they can choose their own. 

  • If you get sick: If you get sick while in Malta, you should visit a doctor. You can ask the Student Services team where the nearest doctor is. If you have a minor illness, you can ask staff at a local pharmacist for advice. Remember to bring any relevant insurance or medical documentation with you. 

  • Protecting your belongings: We strongly recommend you take out insurance for your personal belongings, especially cameras, music players, mobile phones and laptops. Personal items cannot be covered by English Path guest house or residence insurance. 

  • Prescription medication: Remember to bring enough of your prescribed medication with you as Maltese pharmacists will not dispense a foreign prescription. International customs agents may ask you questions about your medication upon your departure or arrival, so be sure to pack it carefully. Bring any important medical records (blood type, prescriptions, x-rays) that might be useful for medical care abroad, as well as contact information for your health care providers at home. 

  • Staying safe at school: If you or another student has an accident or needs urgent medical attention, please come to reception, where the First Aider is located. 

  • Fire safety: If you discover a fire, press the fire alarm button on the nearest alarm. Leave the building immediately via the fire exit. Make sure you tell a member of EP staff exactly what happened so they can call 112. If you hear the fire alarm, leave the building immediately. Do not run or stop to collect your belongings. EP staff will guide you to the fire exit. Go to the assembly point. Follow any instructions given by a member of EP staff and do not go back into the building until you are told to do so by EP staff.  

  • Personal safety and looking after valuables: Malta is generally a safe place, but you should always be alert. Some tips are: Be alert when you are walking alone at night. Avoid carrying large amounts of cash. Do not leave your belongings unattended. In Malta, you do not need to always carry your identification card or passport with you. You can keep it at home and carry a picture of your ID on your phone or a photocopy in your bag. 

(vi) Medical costs  

Medical costs are at the discretion of your local doctor or hospital. Minimum medical costs are as follows: 

  • Consultation with a doctor: €20 - €35 

  • Prescriptions at a chemist: €15 

  • Dental treatment: €65 - €120 

  • Eye test or new glasses: €30 - €80 

(vii) Laws

  • Buying, selling and using drugs is illegal.
