CAIRO – 10 August 2023: Egypt will hold placement tests for its students transferring from Ukrainian and Sudanese universities on Sunday 27 August so that they can join the Egyptian universities, a statement by the Ministry of Emigration read on Thursday.

The decision applies to students who have administrative and scientific proof papers proving their enrollment in unaccredited universities and those who do not hold scientific papers.

Students holding scientific proof papers will undergo a scientific procedural process to determine their levels and placement tests will confirm their levels.

Meanwhile, students not holding scientific proof papers and their parents will have to sign a declaration besides the placement test.

Medical students will undergo the tests in the Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University while tests for dentistry students will be held in the Faculty of Dentistry in Ain Shams University.

Pharmacy students should head to the Faculty of Pharmacy at Cairo University to take the tests while engineering students will have their tests in the Faculty of Engineering at Ain Shams University and students of other majors will have their tests in the relevant universities.

Tests will start at 10 AM and will be held in consecutive sessions on the same day in case a large number of students apply of the tests.

Each student applying for tests will have to pay LE 1,000 per test at the faculty where the tests are held.

Egypt has repatriated most of its expats in Sudan, which totaled at least 10,000, half of which are students, amid the ongoing conflict between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) that broke out in mid-April.

Egyptian universities also received last year transfer requests from more than 2,000 students who were studying in Ukrainian universities.
