It was a reaaallyy good time here in Malta. I gained many Experiences and I could Improve my English. When I had questions there was every time somebody at campus who could help me. My internship was also really nice because I've got challenging tasks and the people who are working there are nice. The English course were also really good, they supported everybody different which was really helpful. I thought my three months would never end, but they did :-(.

My husband and I had a really nice time in Malta. The course was very qwell organized. Our teacher Victoria was very good because she was able to create her classes for advanced as well as less advanced students. The afternoon programmes were very well planned due to our guide Joe. We definitely recommend NSTS!!!

Malta is a very very beautiful place! I'm fascinated by this island. Each city has something beautiful in it. We live in Gżira in very good hotel. On weekends, we went on trips and we admired this beautiful place. In my work I deal with computer graphics. People in work are very friendly and happy. I really like this job and I'm sorry that it's over. I learned a lot of useful things related to computer science.I think I will come back to Malta in the future. I will certainly remember this Erasmus well. Friends in my country will envy me for being here.

The whole stay in Malta is a very nice impression for me, because the people living here have a lot of respect for each other and everyone is tolerant, not dependent on nationality. Even if you have problems with English, you can get along and understand everything without a problem. The stay here was really great, I would like to stay here longer because it is really beautiful, especially the moon illuminating the whole sea at night. I have a great place to work, where the atmosphere is loose. Very nice, I will remember this place and I will definitely come back here.
