Engaging with Egypt: future opportunities for UK higher education TNE

24 Jan 2018, 13:30 - 14:30

​Could Egypt be your next transnational education (TNE) destination? Our webinar will explore how UK universities can help meet higher education demand in Egypt. 

Egypt is a strategically important partner for UK higher education, particularly for TNE. There is a strong tradition of collaboration between Egypt and the UK, supported by both governments. As a consequence, in the past four years the number of students studying for UK degrees in Egypt has risen by 30% making Egypt the fifth largest host country for UK higher education TNE. 

UUKi is working closely with the Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the Egyptian Embassy in London and the UK Government to shape a new a bilateral agreement which will enable UK universities to establish international branch campuses in Egypt. This development will support multi or single-disciplinary autonomous campuses, intended to be embedded in Egypt’s higher education sector and contribute to capacity building. 

Our webinar will cover: 

  •  UK higher education TNE in Egypt in facts and figures 

  • Current policy and existing partnerships between UK and Egyptian universities 

  • Policy developments regarding the opportunity to establish international branch campuses, including: 
    o Bilateral commitment to supporting these developments 
    o Support available from the Egyptian Government 
    o Financial arrangements and operational models including multi and single-disciplinary opportunities 
    o How to express interest in establishing a branch campus

  •  Q&A. 

Confirmed speakers: 

· Professor Mohamed Salheen, Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (Egypt) 
· Leo Boe, Policy Lead-Transnational Education, UUKi 
· Emily Judson, Policy Officer (Middle East), UUKi.
