University of Gibraltar Celebrates Welcome Week 2021

“It is a big day and it is quite exciting to be able to enrol into the course to further my career.”
17th September 2021
Last week the University of Gibraltar opened its doors to 114 new students from over 21 countries, making the incoming cohort the most international to date.
Many of the newly enroled students had opted to study at the University of Gibraltar to benefit from UK-aligned academic standards, a highly supportive student environment, and face-to-face teaching. The MSc in Marine Science and Climate Change proved particularly popular with international students, resulting a cohort of 27 international students; whereas, the Master in Business Administration (MBA) attracted a mainly local cohort. The mix of local and international students, both on campus and in the student accommodation, allows University of Gibraltar students to benefit from an international environment.
In the 6 years since opening its doors to the public, the University’s academic portfolio has steadily grown to include 9 academic programmes, each designed to meet student’s needs, as well as shape personal and professional futures. Speaking of his enrolment on to the Diploma in Adult Nursing (Enrolled Nurse), with the Gibraltar Chronicle, Ethan Pereira said, “It is a big day and it is quite exciting to be able to enrol into the course to further my career. We have seen recently with the pandemic there is scope for nursing and it has become something that is more required and more needed and I am excited to progress on the course.”

To welcome both local and international students, the University of Gibraltar hosted a number of events including a meet & greet pizza night, a guided walk up Mediterranean Steps, an on-campus yoga class, and specifically for international students, an introduction to the history of Gibraltar’s National Day.
