Insider tips about what future students should not miss: It's important to live more or less near to the school, because public transport in Malta is horrible. If you live near to the school is easier to use the Internet area, the EC Beach Club or the gym when you want.
I like very much the organization and the location. Classroom are comfortable and all the people were nice,kind and friendly. It was very easy to know people and to go around the city.

Well-organized study hours. The school staff was sometimes rude. Not the teachers, but only some people of the staff.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The first day they gave us all the information projecting a power point presentation that however has not been given to us. I would suggest a manual richer in information, the one received was a little bit thin. The drivers who accompanied us in the transfer from the airport to the apartments and vice versa, often they didn't know the addresses of the accommodations.
Other comments: Overall the judgment is good. The only comment is about the personnel of staff, that sometimes was a little bit rude.
