We are delighted to be partnering with the University of Malta on an MA Disability Studies joint degree.

This exciting one-year, full-time joint masters programme is taught in Malta so you will also benefit from an enriching cultural experience while studying.

The degree is delivered by the University of Malta with visiting and online teaching from the University of Leeds. This collaborative approach means your studies will be informed by two of Europe’s leading centres for Disability Studies and you will benefit from a range of global insight.

The School of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Leeds and the Department of Disability Studies at the University of Malta have a long-standing and close relationship, built on research links.

The MA Disability Studies will support you to recognise, understand and meet many of the challenges facing disabled people, equipping you with knowledge and skills to help build a more enabling society. You will also be exposed to cultural explanations of disability and the interface of cultural and literary disability research through this international collaboration.

Graduates will receive a joint award from both institutions. Find out more about the programme including modules, fees and teaching on the University of Malta’s website.
