British University in Egypt

3.9 out of 5 (130 ratings / 115 reviews) Cairo, Egypt
To provide an academic environment which encourages and draws together research, learning and teaching and engagement with the social, professional and business communities to underpin high quality academic provision.

Master's Programmes



The formation of a British University in Egypt arose from a 1998 Memorandum of Cooperation between the UK and the Egyptian Governments. It was envisaged that such an institution would produce graduates of UK standards for key sectors of the Egyptian economy, particularly in the areas of engineering, computer science and business studies.


MISSION - To promote cultural, economic, social and technological development through the creation and dissemination of new knowledge via research and capable graduates, educated to the best UK academic standards, who are independent learners. 


The unique undergraduate education offered at BUE is complemented by strong research activities and postgraduate programmes. The challenges in these areas are enormous, and BUE has gained recognition in research and postgraduate education, both in Egypt and abroad.

Housing services

Student dormitories are available for students who want to move closer to campus. Our dorms are right next to campus in a closed compound called Nakheel Residence. Networked and air conditioned dorms for female and male students.

Library services

The new library consists of four floors, with a total capacity of around 1200 users and 100,000 books. It provides over 200 PCs for public use. In addition to providing vital services to existing students and staff, it is hoped that it will also be a good marketing point for future students and researchers.

ICT services

We use the print solution in many locations on campus. As more course and research materials have become available online, the demand for printing has increased to the point where printing costs and waste need to be controlled. Students of the BUE community can use their account to pay for printing on a per page basis.


BUE Staff attend training delivered by the National Authority for Quality Assurance and Accreditation of Education (NAQAAE). The British University in Egypt's (BUE) strategic goal is to ensure delivery of the highest quality education in Egypt

Alot of clinical work but a little bit too much theoretical

The university tends to help students receive great social experience and academically with professional doctors and TA's.

My path to be an economist

In my own opinion the faculty of economics taught us several aspects of economics and in depth. The Professors and assistances are very friendly and helpful.
