People Learning is providing information regarding three of the major funding schemes available from the Government of Malta:  1. The Get Qualified Scheme & the 2. The Investing in Skills scheme Read on.... 

1. The Get Qualified Scheme run by Malta Enterprise 

Get Qualified 2017-2024 (Students Form) 

TIPS  and Guidelines for Registering as a Student for the Get Qualified Scheme in Malta for Malta-based EU citizens:

GET QUALIFIED is a program dedicated to supporting individual growth by facilitating the achievement of industry-required qualifications and certifications. This initiative is open to individuals enrolled in courses leading to certifications, diplomas, degrees, or post-graduate programs. Upon successful completion, participants can benefit from a tax credit, assisting in the reimbursement of incurred expenses.


Students enrolled in courses endorsed by Malta Enterprise can apply for tax credits for:


  • Tuition fees paid to recognized universities, institutions, or entities endorsed by Malta Enterprise for educational services related to the approved qualification.
  • Examination fees necessary for obtaining the approved qualification.


What You'll Get:
Successful students can receive a tax credit worth 70% of eligible costs, up to a maximum amount based on the qualification level (as outlined in the guidelines).



Students with qualifications at MQF Level 3 and 4 (vocational studies), and MQF Level 5 to 8, including industry-required non-level rated courses, are eligible.

STEP 3 – How to make use of the Tax Credit Certificate
Kindly attach a copy of the Final Certificate (Qualification) and a copy of the Tax Credit Certificate with the following documents:-
•    RA10 Form
•     Income Tax Return (Self Assessment Form)
You must receive the above documents from the Revenue Department around May / June. 
If you have received the Tax Credit Certificate from the Ministry of Education and you did not receive the RA10 Form and Income Tax Return in time, kindly ask the Revenue Department to provide you with the forms. 

Finally, all documents must be provided to the Revenue Department by not later than the End of June each year.

What shall you do if you have terminated your studies and have not received the Tax Credit Certificate yet?

If you received an Income Tax Return to fill in but did not receive the Tax Credit Certificate, you should fill out the Income Tax Return (Self Assessment Form) without claiming the tax credit.

This will ensure that you abide by the June deadline and hence avoid any penalties for late filing.

When the Tax Credit Certificate is received you should claim the tax credit by filing an Adjustment Form (AF1) and RA10 Form.
