The programme, aimed at individuals seeking to comply with the academic requirements laid out in the White Paper on Malta’s Property Codes and Regulations, published earlier this year, enabling them to obtain a real estate agent licence, is at MQF Level 5 and accredited by the National Commission of Higher and Further Education.
