As in previous years, the Office of the Ombudsman participated in the KSU Freshers’ Week at the University of Malta. This year, the event is taking place from 2 to 6 October.
The presence of the Office of the Ombudsman on campus aimed to enhance the institution’s visibility amongst students and academic staff.
During Freshers’ Week, students have the chance to familiarise themselves with the roles and functions of both the Ombudsman and the Commissioner for Education. They could also enquire about the services provided by the Office of the Ombudsman. Information, publications, and other handouts were distributed to the students and academic staff who visited the stand.
The Commissioner for Education, Chief Justice Emeritus Vincent De Gaetano, visited the stand of the Office of the Ombudsman at both the Institute of Tourism Studies and the University of Malta.
