Institute for Tourism, Travel & Culture - University of Malta


The Tourism education at the University of Malta was significantly strengthened in 2010 with the setting up of the Institute for Tourism, Travel and Culture (ITTC) was set up in 2010 Prior that Tourism Studies were well established with formal programmes being offered in tourism in 1995 whilst various aspects of Culture were addressed through the Humanities, Arts and Management institutions and faculties throughout the University of Malta right from its very inception.

At ITTC we offer a range of tourism and culture courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and have a number of Ph.D. students completing related research. Each of our programmes is designed to challenge you intellectually and expose you to a broad range of industry practice.

We are active in research and are involved in a range of EU funded research projects. At ITTC we work closely with local tourism and culture stakeholders and our academics collaborate with tourism academics at several European universities. These links ensure that programmes of study offered by our Institute are relevant and useful to people who wish to pursue a career in the tourism or culture sectors.
