Kunsill Studenti Universitarji (KSU) and PwC Malta on Wednesday proudly celebrated the milestone first year of their collaboration.
Such unprecedented times required a higher degree of understanding and assistance across the board, with KSU playing a significant role in aiding the student body at large, most notably with the recent return to a physical presence, while PwC Malta provided continuous support to overcome COVID related challenges.
This period saw the KSU-PwC Malta Careers Expo come to fruition as the first Careers Expo to be held fully online, with this staple KSU event seeing more than 20,000 website visits, 600 CVs submitted and about 700 job interviews with Malta’s leading companies. “The invaluable insight gained along with the plentiful opportunities offered will most certainly leave a positive impact in preparing students for the professional world that awaits them just beyond the University’s doors,” said PwC Malta.
Over the course of the summer, the KSU executive was hard at work to refurbish the common room, resulting in its launch as the KSU-PwC Malta Common Room last week. This upgraded space could not have come at a more opportune moment as the University maximises all available spaces and students eagerly requiring a go-to base to wind down and study – with a healthy dose of socialising - while on campus. To quantify the benefits of this iconic area, one need only look at the many generations of students who’ve called the Common Room their home and sanctuary over the decades.
KSU noted that PwC Malta’s grasp of and commitment to the incredible potential that lies within the thousands of students currently studying at the University of Malta is unparalleled; which commitment is central to KSU’s ethos that supporting the students of today will result in the betterment of society as a whole.
