A first-year medical student’s perspective
When Mina Sadik discovered he could study medicine by the beach at Queen Mary Malta Campus, he jumped at the opportunity. Now that he is living and studying in Gozo, he’s fallen in love with his new life. He says the island provides an incredible environment for learning with its state-of-the-art facilities and resources, as well as a tight-knit and supportive community that values hard work and positivity.
Mina is a gregarious and popular first-year student whose strong work ethic and upbeat demeanour make him a great fit for the welcoming and energetic Gozitan people.
‘I came to Queen Mary Malta to study medicine by the beach,’ he says. ‘The scenery here is stunning. You have the classic European houses and the incredible sunsets by the beach. The facilities are brand new and among the best in the world. What else could you ask for?’
When he’s not studying, Mina loves spending time interacting with the local Gozitans. He says islanders have gone out of their way to make him feel welcome, and every day he finds himself similing at the small interactions.
A university like no other
Mina is also a big fan of Queen Mary, Malta Campus’ state-of-the-art facilities, which he says are everything a medical student could need to succeed.
‘Love the facilities,’ he says. ‘They are well built, well designed and adaptable, from the huge computer labs to the lecture theatre to the incredible anatomy centre.’
When it comes to taking a break from studying, Mina recommends visiting Upper Barrakka Gardens in Malta and Xlendi Cliffs or the Cittadella at night in Gozo. For a sweet treat, he says to try the ice cream at Vanilla, a favourite among students.
If you’re looking for a unique study abroad experience that combines stunning scenery, friendly people, and top-notch facilities, Mina says Queen Mary, Malta Campus is the obvious choice.
“The Maltese people are very friendly here. It’s actually infectious.”
