The Higher Education sector in Egypt comprises of mainly public and private universities. In 2018, the government introduced an International Branch Campuses (IBCs) law. This was done for three main reasons, to attract foreign high ranking universities to Egypt and therefore increase its educational offering, to reduce the level of students studying abroad and retain Egyptian talent, and to establish a key educational hub for Egypt and the wider MENA region.
