The Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry welcomed its first intake of students at its campus in Malta. Upon completing their induction, the students will commence their studies in the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MMBS) programme.
During its first year of operations, while works on its permanent campus are completed, the medical school will be housed at Sir MA Refalo Gozo Sixth Form, which has been upgraded and equipped to provide the best learning experience that befits a university of international repute.
The Barts and the London medical school is a faculty of the Queen Mary University of London and a member of the Russell Group of leading research-led UK universities. Its decision to set up a campus in Malta is an important milestone in the development of new industries - such as the provision of healthcare and tertiary education services - and is the result of the Maltese Government’s strategy and Malta Enterprise’s efforts to incentivise economic growth in Gozo.
