Confused On What To Study At Uni? Here's How To Pick A Course For UoM


Now that A-Level results are out, it's time to apply for your Uni course. A lot of students already know what course they want to follow in Uni and may have known for a while, choosing their A-Levels according to that course's entry requirements. Others chose subjects that they enjoyed without thinking about what they will exactly be doing in Uni, waiting to get a taste of their subjects before making any concrete decisions.


For those who are still unsure about what course is right for them, what options are available, and where each course will take you, University of Malta has you covered.

Going To Speak To A UoM Counsellor


The University of Malta has a system in place to ensure that every applicant is satisfied with their choice. This entails going to speak to one of UoM's counsellors about all their courses, where you can ask them about the content of each course, what job opportunities it will lead to, and how your learning wishes are satisfied by the school.


While speaking to the counsellor, you can tell them your current subjects, which you would like to follow-up on, and what you liked specifically about each one. This way, they can help you pick the right course with your interests in mind instead of making assumptions that may turn out to be wrong in the future.


The biggest benefit from all this is that you are actually speaking to someone instead of looking through lists of courses and trying to figure which are best suited to you in their short summaries.


Where, When, And How To Get This Guidance


Going to speak to one of UoM's counsellors may be one of the easiest parts of the whole process. Before results came out you had to book an appointment yet now that the application deadline is closing fast, their offices are open every weekday morning.


At their main campus in Msida, UoM are accepting walk-ins in rooms 104, 106, and 107 between 8:00 and 12:30, Monday to Friday for anyone who wishes to speak to a counsellor about their choice or any other Uni related queries.


If you want more info, then contact their offices by phoning 2340 2340 to find out more.
