The Knowledge Hub is a multidisciplinary academic hub bringing the best courses from the top 200 internationally-renowned universities worldwide, to provide an international Branch Campus at The Knowledge Hub.
This model is based on the new Egyptian International Branch Campus Law (162/2018), which
provides full autonomy and degree-awarding power to the university. This is not an affiliation or a collaboration, it is a university branch campus at The Knowledge Hub, here in Egypt.
Students will be studying the international degree as if they travelled abroad to get it. The curriculum, teaching techniques, and degree-awarding falls under the same academic partner’s regulations.
The purpose of establishing The Knowledge Hub is to provide students with the same international academic experience here in Egypt. This is part of the government’s education reformation plan,
working up to 2030.
The Knowledge Hub will be offering programmes in multiple academic clusters (Engineering and IT, Medicine, Arts and Liberal Arts, and Humanities and Social Sciences). The campus will include an administrative building and recreational facilities, as well as Research and Innovation Centers.
For the first phase, building 1A, will comprise of classrooms, sports facilities, library, student lounges, an ID-activated lobby, and a cafeteria.
For the first phase, we will be offering these programmes: Engineering, Computing, and Design and Media, all delivered by Coventry University.
School of Engineering:
School of Computing:
School of Design and Media:
Yes, starting with the 2020 intake, we will be offering more programmes from other universities.
The international academic partner is the sole awarding body of the degree offered here at The
It is important to understand the difference between the affiliations existing in Egypt and the IBC model of Higher Education introduced via the 162 law, which dictates that The Knowledge Hub is not, by law, authorized to award degrees.
Our first partner, Coventry University located in the UK, is offering four-year degree programmes, a foundation year followed by three years of study, in the above mentioned programmes.
For clarification purposes Coventry University Branch year 1 (foundation year) courses to be delivered at The Knowledge Hub Universities are of a comparable standard to any of the foundation years offered by any of the pathway providers currently within the international market.
Coventry University Branch at The Knowledge Hub Universities delivers the same courses that are delivered within Coventry University campus in the UK. The foundation year in Coventry University UK was approved via a rigorous Quality Assurance process which conforms to Coventry University regulations (which are subject and conform to UK QAA regulations).
The content and the material is enhanced and developed in a way to ensure students who progress from the Year 1 (foundation year) at the Coventry University Branch at The Knowledge Hub Universities into the first discipline year of the courses (year 2 at The Knowledge Hub Universities) are better prepared and have an enhanced background of English, Math, Science/Engineering and Design/Media to those who may have completed an alternative international foundation year.
First phase of The Knowledge Hub Campus will start in September 2019.
Transfer options to the university’s main campus (the UK for Coventry) is possible at any given point of
their studies after finishing their foundation year.
The Knowledge Hub encourages students from neighbouring countries in the MENA region as part of providing them with a diverse cultural experience, as well be part of a developed academic model with more affordable tuition fees than studying abroad.
Fees for students looking to transfer to the university’s home country would be considered as international students and, therefore, would pay international fees as listed by the home university.
By law, Egyptian students would pay in Egyptian Pounds; however, international students would pay in foreign currencies.
Consider that this is an international branch campus for Coventry here in Egypt; therefore, students will be considered as home/residents’ students and will pay home fees. Same as UK students paying lesser fees than international students at Coventry University.
The Knowledge Hub is managed by Law 162/2018 formulated for the International Branch Campus (IBC) model. This law provides full autonomy and freedom to the academic partner when it comes to the academic cycle of the student: from admission requirements to accredited degree-awarding.
The MOHE will have a representative on the Board of Trustees responsible for ensuring proper compliance with the law as well as recurring national sovereignty.
MOHE has no control over the quality assurance or other relevant matters tied to admissions, curriculum, and degree structure.
Since this is an international branch campus of the university in the UK, students do not need to equate their degree. However, for certain academic subjects, The MOHE will facilitate, by law, degree equivalence for specific syndicates if needed.
The academic partner will provide resident and foreign academic tutors and staff.
The Knowledge Hub will identify local calibers for the academic partner to recruit and train with their own teaching mechanisms to ensure quality-assured teaching methods.
Yes, it does, but this is the first time in Egypt. Other countries, such as Malaysia, Singapore, UAE, and others, have off-shore campuses for certain universities abroad.
Aiming at building a world-class university campus, engaging qualified education providers, and designing knowledge exchange channels; this is how The Knowledge Hub’s holding company El Sewedy Education came to be.
We have two semesters for our foundation programmes.
