The Knowledge Hub Universities (TKH) has announced that a memorandum of understanding has been signed to launch a brand new campus in Sheikh Zayed that will host, not only Coventry University, but a whole host of top, international universities, too.
Set to be built over 50 acres of space, The Knowledge Hub Universities (TKH) has announced that a memorandum of understanding has been signed to launch a brand new campus in Sheikh Zayed that will host, not only Coventry University, but a whole host of top, international universities, too.
The campus is set to be part of a 500-acre integrated community currently being developed by Emaar Misr - one of the Middle East’s most prolific real estate developers - and work on the new TKH is set to start as soon as early 2021.
It marks a huge leap forward for what has, from the very start, been one of the most ambitious educational feats in the country, spearheaded by El Sewedy Education. To keep it short, what TKH does is essentially host branches of international universities, opening a whole new world of education for Egyptian students. It started last year with the UK's Coventry University, the first of many more unique and impactful partnerships to come. The partnership allows Egyptian students unprecedented access to the same degree, quality of education, curricula and teaching methodologies practiced by TKH partners.
“We are proud to announce the expansion of The Knowledge Hub Universities to be part of the esteemed project developed by Emaar Misr, which reflects the great success TKH achieved,” Chairman of El Sewedy Education, Eng Ahmed El Sewedy, said. “We are keen on spreading this successful experience to be able to provide the distinguished educational programs brought by the world’s top ranked universities to more students. Therefore, we look into more successful partnerships in order to achieve the goal of developing the educational system.”
On Emaar Misr’s part, the partnership fits into their own goals of cultivating self-sustainable, integrated projects that provide the highest level of facilities and resources to its communities.
“As we were sure to partner with some of the biggest international schools at the start of our presence in Egypt, it has also become vital to establish universities that provide world-class educational services and have all the capabilities that equip students with the latest academic skills, qualifying them to compete in the different job markets and achieve academic and professional excellence,” founder and chairman of Emaar, Mohamed Alabbar, said of the new partnership. “The impact of this strategy will be felt in having minds capable of developing the Egyptian economy across different fields.”
The expansion of this most unique of educational projects is a welcome arrival and can only mean good things for the future of Egypt.
