Get Qualified Scheme Malta: How and Where to Apply

What is the Get Qualified Scheme?

The Malta Get Qualified Scheme is a Maltese government initiative that allows students who complete a study programme to receive a refund on 70% of their tuition fees. In short, it gives you 70% back on your tuition fees on a recognised certification, diploma, degree or post-graduate degree.


Applying for the scheme can seem a bit intimidating and many students don't know where to start. We've created this handy little guide with everything you need to get your 70% refund in Malta.


Who Is It For?

The scheme is applicable to individuals who complete a course of studies leading to a recognised certification, diploma, degree or post-graduate degree courses. The initiative will run until 2023.


When Do You Get 70% Back?

You'll receive 70% back on your tuition fees after you graduate and successfully complete your course. The tuition fee costs are recovered in the form of tax-credits.


How To Apply?


1) First, graduate! You have to complete your study programme before you can apply and benefit from the scheme.

  • It’s important to understand whether your programme awards a qualification which is recognised in Malta – check Malta’s Qualifications Database here. If you can find the awarding body, it is very likely that you can benefit from the Get Qualified Scheme. As a rule of thumb: if the course is officially recognised in the UK or EU, then it's probably recognised in Malta.


2) You then have to get the course onto the Get Qualified list. Some courses are already on the list, which you can view here.

  • If your course is already on the list: nice! You can click the link here to create an account, apply for the funding and get your refund!
  • Your course is not on the list? Don't worry! Click the link here to get your course added to the list. In order to complete the form, you also have to present an MQRIC statement which you can get here against a small fee (between €10 - €50). Once you do this you can go back to the previous step and get your refund!
