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.
