Setting up International Branch Campuses (IBCs) in Egypt

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.

Click the video the watch Mohamed Gabr, Partner and Head of Corporate Commercial in Egypt, discuss what IBC’s are, how they are regulated under Egyptian Law, and the routes in which foreign universities can set up an IBC in Egypt and help reform the education sector in the region.
