So here goes for this blog, grab yourself a little coffee and imagine yourself already under 30 degrees!!!

Malta is a small island of 320 km² with the highest population density in Europe! 1400 inhabitants/km² for 450,000 inhabitants in off-peak periods, 600,000 during the tourist season! Many students come to Malta for an internship, for the simple reason that most of the population speaks fluent English! What’s more, the weather’s fine, it’s warm, the beaches are endless… in short, it’s an ideal destination for your internship in Europe. We’ll explain why here.

An English-speaking BTS NDRC internship

Malta is an excellent compromise between language training, enjoying the sun and the beach, but above all meeting new people. In fact, in Malta you’ll find people from all over the world, so let go of your French group and use your best English accent.

If you’re worried about your level of English, don’t worry, the company will have already taken note of your level during the interview prior to your arrival, and will therefore adapt the assignments and expectations according to it. Malta is a country where the official language is Maltese, but English is also spoken, so almost everyone living on the island is fluent in English. So you’ll be immersed in an English-speaking environment both on and off the job.

To avoid any problems, you can have your English level assessed free of charge online, thanks to a platform set up by the European Union. You’ll get your results very quickly, within 30 minutes of taking the test.

They could be in the tourism field, such as tour operators who offer their services to hundreds of thousands of tourists every year, either by sea or land. Your future host company could also be a diving school, which is very widespread and active, especially around the summer season when tourists arrive. Malta has a very advantageous tax system in certain areas, and has attracted many online gaming companies to set up offices here and distribute throughout the European Union, as well as firms specializing in the registration of shipowners. Malta also has many law firms, which can be ideal for developing your administrative management skills. You’ve got it: there are plenty of opportunities to satisfy your desire for an internship in Malta!

As far as accommodation is concerned, Malta offers a number of more or less expensive options. First of all, you can opt for an apartment, which you may or may not share. This is the most common solution, but in Malta it’s best to get out there and choose your accommodation physically, as there is a risk that you’ll find yourself ripped off and without accommodation. If you’re going to Malta on your own, or if you’d like to meet other people, you can visit the ERASMUS Malta Facebook groups and find people with similar mobility dates to you. Another option, not necessarily the most pleasant, is a youth hostel. Off-season, prices are really low and you’ll be able to find nightly rates of around €10, but don’t be surprised if you end up with 10 per room. Another option is homestay, which we offer on a weekly basis. We’ve personally visited the accommodation and met the host families, who are top notch and will be delighted to welcome you. We visit the host families every year, and the advantage is that you don’t have to do any shopping or cooking – it’s all taken care of! So you can make the most of your mobility!

Enjoy Malta during your BTS NDRC internship in Malta

Malta is the place to soak up the sun and enjoy the 25° minimum water temperature most of the year, while visiting the dozens of towns and villages, all of which have their own charm and are well worth a visit. Most of Malta’s activity is centered around the historic capital, Valletta, and the country’s economic capital, Sliema. These are the places where you’ll spend most of your free time. Sandy beaches in Malta are rather rare and are found at the extremities of the island. To get around the island, you can use the bus network, which serves all Maltese towns and villages. The main drawback is that it’s poorly organized. Basically, a trip on Google that’s supposed to take an hour will turn into 1H30 to 2H. So if your budget allows it, you can use Uber or Bolt, but the bill will be high. During the summer, towns like Sliema or even San Julian’s are saturated with traffic, and crossings can take up to an hour. If your accommodation isn’t too far from your course, I’d really advise you to walk to it, as this will save you a lot of trouble and money! Bolt and Bird have also set up scooters that you can rent for around €5 for 20 minutes, which will save you a lot of time and avoid traffic jams.

When it comes to going out, whether to a bar or even a nightclub, you can head to the Paceville district of St Julian’s, which is reserved for the world of nightlife. Malta is a pretty safe island, with one of the lowest crime rates in the EU. Even if you feel safe, don’t forget to be careful not to go anywhere at night, as this can prevent you from finding yourself in some not-so-cool situations.

From Malta you can also pack your backpack and head for Sicily, where for around 30 euros return you can visit Palermo or the beautiful city of Catania. There are flights every day, so you can visit yet another new region at a low price. There are plenty of destinations from Malta airport waiting to be explored, so don’t hesitate to get your ticket and explore new horizons!
