Your rights

As a national of Malta or any other EU country – you are automatically also an EU citizen. As such, you can benefit from many important rights under EU law, in particular the right to move freely around Europe to live, work, study or even retire.

Give your opinion

There are a number of ways in which you can contribute to EU decision-making. Explore this section to discover how you can make your voice heard.

Study, learning, internships

The European Commission has developed a large variety of resources to help students learn about the European Union. Teachers and students from Ireland can also study or teach abroad under dedicated, EU-financed programmes.

Work for EU institutions

The EU institutions employ over 40 000 men and women from the 27 EU member countries. The European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO) organises 'open competitions' to select personnel for permanent and non permanent positions.
