Time and Days of the week where the course is taught:
During busy periods at EC Malta, we alternate between morning and afternoon sessions on a daily basis. Put simply, you will attend a morning session of classes one day, and on the next day you will attend an afternoon session. This gives you the opportunity to have free time at different periods during the day, allowing you to have a lie-in one day and an afternoon on the beach the following day! This only applies to Academic Year or General English students attending courses with 20 lessons per week. If you follow an Intensive Course (30 lessons per week) the intensive module falls on the same time daily.
Courses start every Monday – morning sessions start at 9.00 am. Afternoon sessions 2.45pm. Elective sessions if you choose to study an additional topic start at 1 pm. Monday’s timetable is slightly different as it is induction day for new students
