Pembroke was originally part of St Julians, now considered Malta’s newest town (since 1993).
Pembroke has a great military heritage and is surrounded by St. Julian’s, Swieqi and Bahar ic-Caghaq. It is just 6 km away from the capital of Valletta.
Pembroke has developed into a pleasant residential seaside town and a rather green town by Maltese standards.
Pembroke is popular for language students and associated with sports clubs, such as football and tennis, judo and archery, and BMX (the biggest track in Malta).
Pembroke hosts the annual ‘Pillow Fight Day’ in spring and the ‘Holi Malta – Colour Festival’ during late summer.
Pembroke is located along the sea, which makes it ideal for long walks, swimming and snorkelling.
It is quiet at night and a very safe area, whilst at the same time, the entertainment and nightlife area of Paceville/St. Julians can be reached within 15-20 minutes on foot (or two bus stops), meaning students have the best of both worlds.
There is also a lot of history in the surroundings. The entire area was formerly a British military base – including our campus – so one can find quite a few historic buildings.
Pembroke is also well-connected in terms of public transport. There are direct routes to Sliema, Valletta, Malta International Airport and Cirkewwa (ferry to Gozo and Comino).
Students will find all the amenities they need, including supermarkets and other shops, a few small restaurants and bars, hairdressers, beauty salons, a gym etc.
