Egypt’s reputation precedes the country itself: with famous pharaohs and empresses, gorgeous landscapes and instantly recognisable landmarks, there’s no wonder students decide to come and study here, seeing how they combine an amazing vacation with an exquisite education, all in one trip. And Egypt knows how valuable education is: they invented writing, they thought reading and writing were gifts from gods, and scribes were considered to be “the chosen ones”. But are the main requirements and how is actually studying in Egypt like? The universities support students and provide them with tutorials and materials, receiving them warmly. Still, although people are kind and appreciate foreign students, you should consider your personal safety, seeing how things might be a little tense, after the conflict in 2011. But the national scandals shouldn’t deter you from coming here, seeing how universities treat their students with respect and always try to make them feel welcome and comfortable.

mprove your English through an English-language prep course: If you’re attending a degree programme in Egypt, you will need to prove that your language skills are good enough to participate in the classes and understand the lectures; some schools will require Arabic, while others will require strong English skills. These courses will also prepare you for any of the English-language tests that universities require.

To study in English at one of the universities in Egypt, you may need a proof of English proficiency. There are several standardised English tests that you can take to proof your English level, such as the PTE (Pearson Test of English), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System), offered by British Council and IDP. IELTS is the most popular of these tests, with British Council offering more than 500 test locations and being accepted by more than 9,000 organisations world-wide.
