The Malta College for Arts, Science, and Technology (MCAST) launched its prospectus for the coming academic year 2022-23. The prospectus was presented during the My Future Seminar, attended by over 80 career guidance professionals. The publication, which is also available digitally, includes details on all 190 full-time courses offered by the College, from introductory level courses to Master’s level.
MCAST announced six new courses that will be offered from October, reflecting industry skills needs: Advanced Diploma for Dental Surgery Assistants; Diploma in Cabin Crew Training; Undergraduate Diploma in Auto Electronic and Electrical Technology; Master of Science in Advanced Clinical Practice; Master of Science in Professional Health Practice and Master in Social Care Practice.
During the launch, college alumni and current students shared the stories of their learning journey, emphasising the relevance of courses to the world of employment. Industry professionals representing various sectors spoke about the need to raise awareness of the skills and competencies required and the importance of apprenticeships to equip students with the right attitude for the workplace.
Principal and CEO Professor Joachim James Calleja said: “The role of career guidance is crucial in helping students understand the connections between education and work and become more actively engaged in learning. This prospectus is packed with information about courses at all levels showing the career paths. Choosing a learning and career path can be exciting and overwhelming all at once. Ours is an invitation to all students to discover what options are available, and we commit to supporting them every step of the way.”
