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 worked closely with the Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the Egyptian Embassy in London and the UK Government to shape a groundbreaking Memorandum of Understanding between the two Governments enabling 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.
