Student life


The University of Hertfordshire in Egypt is thrilled to extend a warm welcome to the newest cohort of students, affectionately referred to as "Freshers," who commenced their academic journey at the start of the new academic year in October 2023. The university inaugurated their educational experience with a vibrant and dynamic two-day Induction event.

During this immersive experience, the new students had the privilege of engaging with esteemed deans and academic staff, participating in informative sessions on university tools and systems, gaining insights into student life, exploring UH's student organizations, and enjoying a variety of engaging outdoor activities. While our primary focus is on facilitating the achievement of educational goals, we understand that a comprehensive university experience encompasses more than just academics. Embracing student life on campus opens doors to a truly enriching and impactful journey.

The Department of Student Life plays a pivotal role in ensuring that students not only excel academically but also embark on an unforgettable and enriching campus experience. Encouraging active social and intellectual participation, the department fosters an environment that nurtures students' growth, celebrates diversity, and upholds the principles of freedom of expression. Join us in this transformative journey, where education goes beyond the classroom, and students thrive in a community that values both individuality and collective growth.
