Malta (all year) & Gozo (02 January - 09 June & 04 September - 29 December)

A Full Programme for 16-17 Year-olds

Our BELS young-adult programme is the perfect balance between our junior courses and adult courses. It’s designed for independent teens who’d like more flexibility during their study trip. The programme includes English courses, accommodation and a leisure plan for students aged 16 and 17. It’s a great opportunity to learn English in Malta while experiencing Malta’s rich history and exciting atmosphere with students of a similar age.

The Young Adult Programme includes:

  • Homestay accommodation sharing rooms on HB Basis;
  • International classes (20 or 30 lessons) with maximum 12 students;
  • English online placement test;
  • Coursebook;
  • Certificate of attendance;
  • Activity programme: 3 afternoon or evening activities + 1 full day on the weekend (offered between 12 June – 01 September)
  • Arrival and departure airport transfers.

You’ll find yourself learning the language in a way you never imagined possible, through experiencing it spoken naturally in a safe and popular destination. Compared to other countries, the cost of living in Malta is also generally lower.


Our young adult programme is available at our English schools in both Malta and Gozo, providing students with a range of options to choose from. Both destinations offer an immersive language-learning experience, as well as the chance to explore local culture and landmarks.

The main difference between the two islands is the size and atmosphere. Malta is a larger island with a more bustling and lively feel. There are many things to do and see, including historic sites, nightlife, beaches, and shopping. On the other hand, Gozo is a smaller, more tranquil island that offers a more relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. Gozo is renowned for its beautiful countryside, stunning coastlines, and historic landmarks, including the ancient Ggantija temples and the medieval Citadel. It’s an ideal location for those who want to escape the crowds and immerse themselves in nature, adventure sports and culture.

Here are the dates for the programme, based on location:

  • Gozo: 01 January – 10 June & 03 September- 31 December
  • Malta: All year round.

English Courses

On the Young Adult Programme, you can choose from a General English Standard or General English Intensive group courses for all levels. Apart from that we can also help you prepare for any upcoming English examinations like IELTS, CAE or FCE amongst others. You may also join our IELTS preparation courses or take up individual lessons to prepare better for your exams. If you’d like to learn English in Malta for work, there’s also business English group courses to help you reach your future career goals.


Students on the Young Adult English Course can only use BELS homestay options (as per Maltese law) due to legal age. Most of the time BELS also make sure your roommate speaks a different language so you can also continue to practice and learn English in Malta after your school hours. The accommodation is provided on a half-board basis. Any special dietary requirements can be catered for, just make sure to inform us beforehand.

Leisure Programme (Summer)

During the summer period (1 June-3 September), an activity programme is included as part of the young adult programme at BELS Malta in St.Paul’s Bay. This includes a mix of activities such as hikes, historical and cultural tours, sports or social outings. Once you arrive at the school we’ll show you a weekly schedule of activities. You can choose 3 afternoon or evening activities on weekdays, and 1 full day activity on the weekend per week. To receive a sample programme, contact us on chat or by email.

Unlike our international teen camp, we do not provide 24/7 supervision for students taking part in our Young Adult Programme.
