According to the NSO report, foreign students attending English language courses numbered 87,112, almost unchanged from that of 2017.

The majority of students attending English language courses in Malta came from Italy, followed by Germany and France, which account for 48.7 percent of those students.

The largest share of language students was aged 15 years or less, accounting for 34.2 percent of total students.

Female students outnumbered males, and accounted for 61.3 percent of total students.
