The University of Malta's Programme in the Liberal Arts and Sciences (Plas) is an excellent opportunity for personal and professional development. Prospective students may apply for any and as many Units as they wish from the broad range of Plas Units on offer. Plas Units consist of weekly evening lectures between 6 and 8pm, normally spread over 14 weeks.

Seventeen Units will be offered in Semester 2 of 2017/18, commencing in February. The subjects covered include Astronomy, Winemaking, Nature Photography, Film Directing, Business Venturing, Dark Tourism, Herbal Medicine, Beekeeping and the Art of Honeymaking, Human Resource Management and others.


Four Plas Tech Units are also being offered. The rationale of these Units is to respond to the need for ICT professionals to enrich their academic education with focused expertise on a selection of current and emerging software technologies and tools. In the next semester, Units on the Spring Framework, Video Game Design and Development with Unity, Data Science for Business and Reactive Micro services are being offered. Plas Tech Units are included in the Get Qualified scheme.
