Awards Evening                      

The University Junior College Awards Evening is held annually as a special occasion to celebrate excellence amongst students. Students, who obtain the highest marks in their assessment and end-of-year examinations, and attend sessions regularly throughout the course, are eligible for an award. Awards are also presented to students, who during their course of studies distinguish themselves in co-curricular activities, and in activities which contribute towards the good name and the ethos of the College.

Careers Week

During this week, students are given the opportunity to attend information sessions regarding different study routes and career paths. Talks, presentations and testimonials from professionals as well as information visits are included in the programme of activities for the week. Representatives from the different Faculties from the University of Malta, other higher education institutions, as well as prospective employers are invited to participate.

Xrar – Contemporary Visual Arts Project

Xrar is an artistic project divided in two parts: an exhibition entitled Contemporary Inside and a Visual Arts Expo for Young Artists at the Junior College campus. 
Xrar provides young artists with a platform to showcase their artistic and creative potential in the visual arts and to improve their artistic skills through talks and workshops by working with established artists directly and by learning how an exhibition is set up and run.

‘Next Stop … Junior College’ – Open Day                  

Every year, the College opens its doors to the public, to give people the opportunity to get a sense of what College life is like, and to present a wide range of useful information on the subject offered. Everyone is invited, in particular, prospective students as well as their parents. 
On the day, visitors have the opportunity to go round the building, view the facilities and resources, and meet the subject coordinators, other members of staff as well as our students to find out more about studying at Junior College.  This activity is popular with prospective students as it helps them to make informed decisions.

Philanthropic Events 

Throughout the year, a number of philanthropic events are organised at the College with the aim of helping various NGOs. These include the Malta Community Chest Fund, Puttinu Cares and Hospice Malta. These activities are mainly coordinated by the JC4Others Committee. Other events, such as Blood Donation Day, are organised to instil a sense of charity and giving among the community of students and staff.
