STUDENT LIFE

STUDENT ACTIVITIES

Our Director of Student Affairs organizes frequent student activities throughout the year. These activities are included as part of your Activity Fee and they are a great way to get to know other students. Many of our activities are also designed to help you get to know more about the Maltese history and culture.

Here are some sample activities and photos!

  • Valletta Tour
  • Three Cities Tour
  • Pool Tournament
  • Gozo and Comino
  • Ice Cream Social
  • Blue Grotto

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION (SGA)

The SGA represents the student body, provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate leadership, and serves as a liaison between the students and the university administration. It also plays an important role in planning and sponsoring student campus activities and events. The SGA consists of a President and Executive Committee. As the student body expands, representative members will be added to the SGA and job responsibilities will change. 

The SGA follows a constitution (to be developed) that defines its goals and objectives and establishes the roles and responsibilities of each SGA member. The constitution also defines the policies and procedures to follow for planning and organizing University events. It also establishes the minimum qualifications for students who want to run for office.

For more information on joining the SGA, please contact our Student Affairs Office: studentaffairs@aum.edu.mt

 

Student Organizations and Clubs

The Student Life Office facilitates student growth through a variety of organizations. It supports activities to complement courses such as academic, civic, social, cultural, religious, or recreational clubs for fun and leisure. Membership in these clubs not only helps students make new friends and meet people with common interests but it also helps them to acquire important skills such as leadership, organization, team work, and event planning. The university encourages all students to establish or join organizations to explore or further their interests.
