Ranked among the top 100 cities in the world for international students, Cairo is a unique and wondrous destination for students seeking an adventurous study abroad experience.
The city blends the vibrant cultures of the Middle East, Africa and the Mediterranean and has long served as the cultural, political and social capital of the Arab region. Choosing to study in Cairo provides the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Egyptian culture while learning about the region’s most pressing modern issues.
Cairo is an enormous city with lots to discover. Besides the American University in Cairo (AUC) bus service, international students can take advantage of the numerous transportation options. Subway is the quickest and most convenient way of getting around Cairo. Another affordable alternative is the newly launched air-conditioned and Wi-Fi enabled public bus. For private on-demand transportation, taxicabs or application-based taxi services are also available.
Founded in 1919, AUC is a leading English-language, U.S.-accredited institution of higher education and is the center of the intellectual, social and cultural life of the Arab world. Its diverse community of students, faculty, alumni, trustees and generous supporters represents more than 60 countries.
The University AUC offers 40 undergraduate, 52 Master’s and two PhD programs rooted in a liberal arts education that encourages students to think critically and find creative solutions to the challenges facing our region and the world. It also offers globally recognized professional, competency-based education in English to meet the needs of the dynamic Egyptian and broader regional economies.
AUC has the largest English-language academic library collection in Egypt, three modern theaters and 13 cross-disciplinary research centers. AUC has two campuses: AUC New Cairo, a stunning, modern oasis outside of the city; and AUC Tahrir Square, a treasured, historic landmark in downtown Cairo. The University’s modern 260-acre New Cairo campus constitutes a visionary investment in the future of Cairo, Egypt and the region — a state-of-the-art facility for advanced research, innovative teaching, lifelong learning and civic engagement.
