Full-Time Student €0 per month

The SMIFlexiPay™ Scheme works out through a special Bank of Valletta interest free fund available to Saint Martin’s Institute registered students. The fund will settle all the tuition fees that are usually payable over three academic years whilst reading for your degree, without asking you for repayments until after you finish with your studies.

Evening Student €55 per month

In the case you are a student who opts to study whilst keeping your full time job, the SMIFlexiPay™ scheme still applies, but small monthly payments are due from the first month of your studies whilst your tuition fees for the year are settled in full through the fund.
