All undergraduate students follow two areas of study during the first year, but those who wish and qualify to proceed to the honours track continue with one area of study, in addition to a limited number of credits in the subsidiary area to be taken during the second year. Undergraduates may choose a combination of any two areas of study, with some restriction imposed only by practical time-table requirements.
- The duration of the Oriental Studies (Arabic) (Hons) degree courses is three years. Honours students at the University of Malta write research-based dissertations or long essays in the final stages of their studies.
- The weighting of the course components in establishing the final grade is biased in favour of the later parts of the course, on the principle that the fairest evaluation of a student is at the point of exit.
- Students who wish to participate in an ERASMUS exchange are encouraged to do so preferably during the first semester or the second semester of the second year of the course.
