The GUG welcomes €300 increase in benefits for Gozitan students

The Gozo University Group has welcomed the measure announced in yesterday’s Budget  in which Gozitan students who study in Malta will be given an increase of €300 per year. However, the GUG has also insisted that it still feels this is not the solution to the problem of accommodation for Gozitan students in Malta. It said that a more sustainable measure needed to be found for the future.

The GUG also welcomed the decision by the University of Malta to begin offering courses in Gozo to help students who wish to read for doctorate and post-doctorate degrees.

Apart from this, it has recognised the work which has been carried out to conclude a feasible study for a permanent link between Malta and Gozo. It expressed its satisfaction for the National pool project in Gozo which it considers an important step especially since this was one of its proposals for the Budget.

The Gozo University Group welcomed the measures which will be taken to increase employment in Gozo through incentives for employees and the new efforts which are taking place to increase back office work in Gozo. However, the GUG drew attention once again to the investment in the second  cable fibre optic between the two islands. It said that if this is implemented it would be increasing jobs in Gozo.
