Ok dude.. these have been added to the main page. Quit re-posting them !! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.77.196.68 (talkcontribs)

Right on then. Would you mind, though, just posting something in response like, "OK that is on the page? " That would be preferable to just blanking out this page, which looks like vandalism.. does that make sense? thanks 「ѕʀʟ·」 11:32, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

I think the very last edits were vandalism weren't they? Maltesedog 12:31, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

You're right. Carol Peralta was removed, seems notable? 「ѕʀʟ·」 18:29, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

Yes and there's even some more text about Mintoff's times.. it looks like it was also removed. I don't know if its relevant to the article. Maltesedog 18:33, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

There's nothing in the revisions that isn't in the current version. And Dr. Peralta is on the page too, so what are you referring to?

Out of interest... who is Carol Peralta? Is she notable enough to be a 'notable' alumnus of the university? Kilbosh 13:06, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

A Magistrate.. quite notable. but it was readded that's why its there. Maltesedog 20:04, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

The Rector of the University is not Prof. Camilleri. This will only be true in July, at the end of term of the current rector. I am changing it back. Kilbosh 05:42, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

Data Box[edit]

Regarding the info. in the Data box: don't the Junior College students and masters students count? If I remember correctly, on the voting list for the recent KSU elections, there were about 12,000 students listed. Can anyone back this up? Also, there are not 600 faculties, there are only 10. Kilbosh 15:50, 14 May 2006 (UTC)


Faculty refers to lecturers, its an american term and is standard to the info box. regarding the number of students i got it from the University of Malta website Maltesedog 17:56, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

In North American English, the word "faculty" has also come to be used as a collective noun for the academic staff of a university: senior teachers, lecturers, and/or researchers Maltesedog 17:03, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

No problem, re: faculty. I looked it up and found the exact definition you've cited just after I added this, but never came back to rectify it. Still, the no. of students is a bit on the low side...Kilbosh 13:08, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

If you can find a source indicating a different number, (I had found the number of students in a website), you are free to change it provided you post your references for the change over here Maltesedog 14:38, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

Ban Ki Moon[edit]

Ban Ki Moon is listed under notable graduates, however I can't find any evidence that he ever attended this university. I know that he visited the university and unveiled a sculpture: http://insiteronline.com/news/ban-ki-moon-unveils-climate-change-monument-at-uni/ - however there is no evidence that he actually attended. If he was given an "honorary" degree, this should be clearly stated, instead of implying that he actually studied there. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.251.126.189 (talk) 11:50, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Too bad there isn't a corresponding page in Maltese. Is anyone interested in writing it? 76.90.62.36 (talk) 09:17, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Kim Jong-il[edit]

I think there needs to be some consensus as to whether Kim Jong-il should be added to the list of notable graduates. While User:Demdem disagrees that he should be in this section, Kim Jong-il's article lists his alma maters as Kim Il-sung University and the University of Malta. In addition, he is also listed in Category:Alumni of the University of Malta. As per WP:CONSENSUS, I think there needs to be some discussion and firm consensus by multiple editors as to whether he should be added or not. RA0808 talkcontribs 17:33, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out. Please note that, despite the Kim Jong-il article lists the University of Malta as his alma mater as well as in the Alumni of the University of Malta category the source quoted does not mention him being a graduate of the University. This article, which on this matter gives most detail, makes clear that Kim was in Malta as a student of basic English not at tertiary level. I would therefore suggest taking the references out from this article and the biographical article.
