You may call our University what you will but the University is still a place where the intellectually finer members of society are in the making.
 
I will agree that quality should come before quantity. I will also agree that our University could be better planned.
 
However it still represents what Malta currently holds as its main bastion for tertiary education and it is through the University that people gain credibility in the form of certifications of competence in specific fields (not that this system is exactly optimal mind you).

The University is a disgrace.  All it produces are people who can most probably reproduce quite a few quotes from textbooks but seem to have lost the power to use what's between their heads.

Our University does not encourage or stimulate intellectual thought.  One goes there, memorises (a.k.a. studies) a few things, gets their certificates, and, in some cases, become self-proclaimed intellectuals.  As for those who simply study to find themselves a good job...well, they find out that the University omitted to teach them one very vital thing - how to apply all their theories to the real world.

Anyway, could say much more on the topic to substantiate and add to my argument but 2nd half about to start so I'm off.

The university is still the best of whats left (Couldn't resist the Hot Shots reference ;c). Many moans I've had (not on this site) about the deficiencies of our education system.
 
Any reform is too far over the horizon however. In the meantime the least we can do is respect the current institution as a temporary measure.
