President of French University in Egypt (UFE) Dennis Darby said that the university appreciates the burden placed on Egyptian families.
In an interview with Sada ElBalad Univercities, Darby added: “We are actually trying to strike a balance between costs and expenses, especially in light of the use of visiting foreign professors, and our goal is to publish scientific research and use the best professors besides providing laboratories with the best equipment.”
“As for study expenses, it is decided that they amount to 105,000 pounds annually for all university faculties.”
According to the UFE president, the bachelor’s duration is 3 or 5 years for the College of Engineering, and we are a non-profit university, and the gains are in the service of students and the appointment of new professors. “We have to take into account that the lectures and workshops at the university are in small groups, 30-40 students at most in one group to ensure student success.”
“As for the university, 10-15% of students enrolled in the university benefit from scholarships, whether full or partial scholarships. We offer scholarships to outstanding high school students, a discount for students who apply for early enrollment, and a discount for students of African countries provided by the French government” he added.
“We are currently studying with partners from companies to provide grants at the expense of companies, in addition to providing grants for graduates,” the UFE president said.
He said: “We have a plan to open new programs in the field of health, and here we do not mean the Faculty of Human Medicine, but a faculty in the health field. It is a broader and more comprehensive field, and I realize the level of the distinguished Egyptian doctor graduate, and we are working to study this file carefully.”
“We are very proud of the university’s graduates, as they are distinguished by their proficiency in three languages (Arabic-French-English), and many of them held high positions in Egyptian and French companies, especially in the field of Egyptian and European telecom companies,” according to UFE president.
