About United International Schools (UIS)

United International Schools (UIS) is a Maltese Higher Education Institution (HEI) that has been established to address the needs of a new generation of learners: learners from an increasingly diverse community; learners who want to study and work or who have to work to study or who are in caring dependent relationships which require more flexible modes of study than campus-based learning; learners of the digital generation who are not only savvy with technology but enjoy the digital environment.

To meet these needs, UIS offers flexible programmes which will enable learners to upgrade their education and graduates to enhance their employability and/or career development. The programmes have been modelled on best digital practice and have been offered through international learning platforms.

UIS created out of a partnership of two long-standing higher education providers who have been offering online education programmes for over 20 years.

UIS is a Higher Education Institution accredited by Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA) under the licence number 2023-010.
