We are living in an age when we can get the majority of the information we need from a computer. We live our lives in front of a computer: be it to shop, play games, chat or browse the net. Because we are so used to instant, colourful knowledge, school lessons and presentations can appear to be boring in comparison to the technological world we are used to. This is why eLearning has been introduced: the iLearn platform provides a virtual school building where teachers can easily upload any material they want to share with their students. It is also a means for students to communicate in a safe environment.
In order to progress to higher education or for proof that we have certain knowledge, we often need to sit for exams. So as to make sure that exams are fair and to help those sitting for them, the Department for Examinations has set various guidelines.

Student Maintenance Grants
Because the Maltese government is so strongly in favour of education, it offers Student Maintenance Grants (or stipends) to students attending public and private sixth forms, vocational colleges such as MCAST and ITS, and the University of Malta. Depending on whether you are at college or university, you will receive a sum of money each month during your years of study. To find out more about stipends and how to apply for them click here.
