  • Announcement on EDU courses published on 15th February 2021 by MFHEA

EDU

The MFHEA would like to inform any prospective and current students following courses with EDU that MFHEA only accredit academic programmes. This on its own does not mean that anyone following a course with EDU (even at Level 7) can practice the profession of a doctor/physician. This can only happen if the course is accepted by the relevant medical authorities (Medical Council in Malta or equivalent in other EU member States). It is EDU’s duty to seek such recognition.

Any indication or promise by EDU that its courses can lead students to practice the profession of a doctor/physician is not and cannot be endorsed by MFHEA since it is not the competent authority to do so.
