The University of Hertfordshire in Egypt, hosted by Global Academic Foundation, is the first full-fledged branch campus of a UK university in Egypt.
In a significant development for the education sector in Egypt, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research has officially equalised our programmes at the University of Hertfordshire in Egypt – hosted by Global Academic Foundation. This equalisation recognises the university's commitment to providing high-quality education and its contributions to the academic landscape in Egypt. With this recognition, the University of Hertfordshire in Egypt solidifies its position as a trusted institution, empowering students to pursue their academic aspirations within an internationally recognised framework.
UH-GAF’s programmes have been equalised by The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, and these programmes are BA in Accounting and Finance, BA in Advertising and Digital Marketing, BA in Business Administration under the School of Business, BSc in Physiotherapy under the School of Health, MPharm, BSc in Pharmaceutical Science under the School of Life and Medical Sciences, BEng in Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics, BEng in Civil Engineering, BSc in Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) under the School of Engineering and Computer Science, BA in Digital Media Design, BA in Interior Architecture and Design under the School of Creative Arts, and lastly BA in Mass Communications under the School of Humanities.
The curriculum being taught is aligned with that of the University of Hertfordshire in The United Kingdom. Firstly, it ensures that students receive a high-quality education that meets international standards. By adopting this curriculum, students are exposed to a well-rounded education that prepares them for future academic and professional pursuits.
The benefit of this equalisation policy is that it allows students to be registered in syndicates that are relevant to their specific academic programmes and areas of study. This ensures that students receive specialised support and guidance from professionals who are well-versed in their respective fields. By being part of a syndicate, students can access resources, networking opportunities, and career development prospects that are tailored to their academic pursuits.
Furthermore, this equalisation policy enables students to pursue postgraduate studies in any Egyptian university. This flexibility opens up a wide range of educational opportunities for students, allowing them to choose from various reputable institutions and programmes that suit their interests and career aspirations.
This official equalisation by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research can lead to enhancements in the university's curriculum and teaching methods. It can result in better alignment with national standards, increased industry relevance, a stronger focus on research and innovation, pedagogical advancements, and a more global outlook. These changes ultimately benefit students by providing them with a high-quality education that meets international benchmarks and prepares them for successful careers.
