CAIRO – 17 March 2018: The Universities of Canada, Egypt (UCE) in the New Administrative Capital announced on Monday that the University of Prince Edward Island will begin receiving the first batch of Egyptian and foreign students by June 2018.

University of Prince Edward is one of the five Canadian universities under construction in the new capital and supervised by the Canadian and Egyptian governments. It will be the first university to open its doors for students in the new capital. However, the draft law regulating the work of new international universities is still under discussion.

This new educational complex will be built on 50 acres with a total cost of LE 1.7 billion ($9.63 million). It consists of eight buildings; seven of them were allocated for educational purposes, and the eighth building will be allocated for scientific research and development.

The new capital will include six international universities from the United States, Britain, Hungary, Canada, Sweden and France. All of them will be built in the Science City within the framework of the Egyptian government’s keenness to promote higher education and scientific research.

President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi had laid the first stone of the New Administrative Capital project in East Cairo, with an area of 170,000 acres, of which the first phase accounts for 40,000 acres.

The New Administrative Capital is located in the area between the Cairo-Suez and Cairo-Ain Sokhna roads just east of the regional ring road. This is roughly 60 km from the cities of Suez and Ain Sokhna.

Cairo’s total area is estimated at 95,000 acres, while the Administrative Capital will be built on an area of 170,000 acres, including 20 residential areas expected to accommodate 6.5 million people and a roads network of 650 km length. The capital will have an international airport and electric train to link it with the 10th of Ramadan and El-Salam cities.
