Study Abroad Information

Academic Life
Studying at the University of Gibraltar may be different to what you’re used to in your own country. Our programmes are normally split up into ‘modules’ which cover different topics within the overall subject you’re studying. These modules are usually taught in lectures and tutorial (practical application) sessions.

You will benefit from face to face learning and small class sizes, approaches that place you at the heart of learning and ensure your experience is enjoyable. You will have the chance to put into practice what you’re learning, with local (and a possibility of international) placements during each year of your studies.

To help you get settled into academic life at the University of Gibraltar, we’ll invite you to an orientation programme. This takes place before the start of the academic year and is designed to introduce you to life in Gibraltar and help you prepare to study at the University of Gibraltar. For some students, attending the orientation programme may be mandatory.


English language support
If English is not your first language, you can access our Europa Point Language Centre prior to the start of your programme. The language centre offers classes, one-to-one sessions and pre-sessional English language courses. We’ll tell you more about these services when you apply, but you can also get in touch with us if you have any questions. (eplc@unigib.edu.gi)
