The College prides itself in offering the widest possible choice of subjects. The following guidelines should help students choose their subjects wisely:
Students are advised to identify their areas of strength and interest and to choose the University course/s that match these strengths and interests. Some courses may require specific subjects as entry requirements, but there are University courses which do not have special course requirements. Go through the full list of courses.
For the Matriculation Certificate, students are required to study two subjects at Advanced level, three subjects at Intermediate level and Systems of Knowledge, which is a compulsory subject.
The choice of subjects should include at least one subject from each of Groups 1, 2 and 3. The other two subjects may be chosen from any of the four groups (refer to table on opposite page).
It is the students’ responsibility to ensure that the group of subjects chosen is in line with MATSEC regulations and course requirements. The same applies if a change of subjects is requested.
Students may request to be exempted from studying the six subjects at the College, if they are already in possession of a pass in the subject/s.
The Junior College reserves the right not to offer a subject if the number of applicants does not justify it or if logistics and timetable arrangements do not permit it.
Students are strongly advised to consult the relevant MATSEC syllabus to know more about a particular subject.
Students who are 18+ years and do not require the full Matriculation Certificate in accordance with the respective regulations, may choose any combination of subjects, according to the programme they are registered for. Students should be aware that such qualifications would not satisfy the entry requirements to the University of Malta.
Students following a two-year programme, may choose an additional language at Intermediate level. This is purely optional. At the end of the programme, students can sit for the MATSEC examination in the subject.
