I feel sure that graduates from BUE, with United Kingdom-quality degrees, will be attractive to Egyptian employers and will play an important part in this country’s future.
The British University in Egypt appeals to me a lot. There was a survey about the quality of graduates and British graduates scored highest in the world.
The British Embassy and the British Council are proud to be associated with the BUE, not simply because it is British, but because it aims to give its students the equivalent experience to being in a British university without leaving Egypt.
I was pleased that the official opening of the University took place in March 2006 in the presence of HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Duchess of Cornwell. This has shown the University has full support of both Egypt and the United Kingdom.
It is with a great pleasure that I thank the ‘British University in Egypt’ for inviting me to contribute to their prestigious thinking and knowing better the international relations.
BUE represents a new partnership between Egypt and the UK, a partnership that brings our peoples together. The world’s professional and cultural health and wealth depends on the development of bold working and learning relationships such as this.
