As observed in other markets, young learners are dominating larger chunks of the ELT sector

Student numbers are up 13.6% since 2016, with some markets showing a double-digit growth

Italy, the top source market for Maltese ELT, grew by 36% since 2016. In second position, Germany shows a slight 5% decrease, while Russian student numbers are growing again after a steep decrease, that halved its numbers between 2014 and 2016. Brazil sent 1,898 more students than in 2016, showing a 72% growth.

July is by far the most popular month – it is also the month with the highest proportion of students per tourists

As observed in other markets, young learners are taking up a larger share of the ELT sector: numbers of students aged 15 and under show a 63% increase since 2014, while the number of 18-25 year olds shows a 14% decrease over the same period.

July is by far the most popular month – it is also the month with the highest proportion of students per tourists.

But while July’s figures dwarfed other months in 2017 – the number of students who arrived in July was more than double compared to other months such as August – the distribution of arrivals used to look more evenly distributed in 2014 and 2015.

The PIE dived into NOS statistics to trace growth in source markets and uncover trends in accommodation choices, length of stay across different age groups and country of origin and more.
