The sky is the limit for Egypt’s New Administrative Capital. From becoming the first cashless city in Egypt, holding a Middle Eastern record for having the tallest African tower and the largest cathedral and so much more. It doesn’t stop there, the good news keeps coming!
During a visit to the University of Canada in Egypt (UCE) on Sunday, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Khaled Abdul Ghaffar, announced that eight international universities will be built in the New Administrative Capital by 2020. The project will include universities from the United States, Britain, Hungary, Canada, Sweden, and France.
“The universities will improve our educational system, as they will qualify graduates for competing internationally,” Abdul Ghaffar stated. During the meeting, faculty members of UCE stated that the study performance of the Egyptian students was equal to their Canadian counterparts. The university hosts branch campuses of the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) and Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN), with programs identical to those of Canadian students.
During the International Education Conference held in the United Kingdom on Wednesday entitled “Cross Boundary Education in Egypt and the Chances of Investment in the Higher Education”, Abdul Ghaffar explained that the universities will not be limited to education, but part of their budgets will be dedicated to scientific research.
