Egypt: Expecting a wave

Egypt is jumping on the bandwagon of countries looking to dramatically expand their international student body. In a strategy approved by the Supreme Council of Universities in January, Egypt will take steps towards increasing its number of international students –who come primarily from Arab and African nations –from 53 000 to 200 000 in the next three years. Some of these measures include developing campus infrastructure, increasing security procedures, and lowering admission requirements for incoming students.
