University of Canada in Administrative Capital opens door for 2018-2019 students

Thu, Aug. 9, 2018
CAIRO – 9 August 2018: The University of Canada in Egypt (UCE) has announced that the 2018-2019 academic year will begin next month, becoming the first foreign university at the New Administrative Capital to receive students.

The study will begin at the university on Sept. 23 at the three faculties of engineering, business administration and science, according to Amr Sherif, director of marketing and communications department, at Canwell Education Consultancy Group.

Sherif said that UCE received a total of 1,750 applicants, adding that there will be financial grants varying between $1,000 and $4,000 Canadian dollars for outstanding students, including top Thanaweya Amma (high school) students.

He further said that they are currently negotiating cooperation with different Canadian universities worldwide to launch joint programs.

Students were received at the UAE Headquarters by Magdy el Qady, the Chairman of Canwell Company, and Debbie McClellan, the President of the University of Canada in Egypt, who will explain the application process.

The university has also posted on its official Twitter account a tweet inviting applicants to its Open House on Wednesday, detailing all necessary documents for them to bring on to the appointment. According to the tweet, applicants attending the Open House event will be informed if they were conditionally accepted on Wednesday.




The New Administrative Capital will include six international 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,” Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Khaled Abdul Ghaffar stated previously, adding that the universities' role will not be limited to education only, as part of the budget will be spent on scientific research.

The Egyptian government is concerned with providing all the necessary needs of the Egyptian youth regarding higher education through inserting different fields in both governmental and private universities, as well as providing international education in Egypt.

Egypt seeks to restore its position among high education centers in the Middle East and Africa and to double the number of overseas students. This would increase its national income, attract foreign investments in the higher education sector and help establish branches of international universities in the New Administrative Capital.
