The British University in Egypt is an Egyptian not-for-profit private university, founded under Egyptian law. It was established following an intergovernmental agreement between the Egyptian and British governments with a view to creating a university in Egypt following the standards and culture of British higher education and offering UK-validated degrees.
BUE is governed by a Board of Trustees comprising the President of BUE and eminent public figures from Egypt and the UK. The Board of Trustees is chaired by Mr Mohamed Farid Khamis, the principal founder of the University. The Board of Trustees is approving the University Strategy and Byelaws which govern the University’s operations. The Byelaws also set out a committee structure for the day-to-day leadership and management of the University.
