University of Malta is the top educational institution in malta. MCAST (which is the cheap alternative where one can enter with only 2 or 3 O-levels) is nothing compared to the University of Malta, where 2 A-levels and 3 Intermediates are required. In UOM, the important things are learnt, especially for engineering, where students are actually thought how to be a real engineer, not just how to weld 2 pieces of metal together or fix cars.
