Students from Egypt

Egypt is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, making it an Afro-Asiatic country bordered by the Mediteranean Sea. The population of Egypt is concentrated chiefly along the fertile valley of the Nile River because the rest of the country is largely desert. Egypt is considered as the third largest country in Africa. The world famous Sahara desert is located here which is sparsely inhabited.

Egypt is called the cradle of civilization as it experienced some of the greatest developments in the fields of writing, agriculture, urbanization, religion and governance. Some of the greatest monuments like the Great Sphinx and Giza Necropolis are the main tourist attractions. Foreign influences of Greece, Persia, Arab and Europe has contributed to the rich cultural heritage. Its iconic monuments, such as the Giza Necropolis and its Great Sphinx, as well the ruins of Memphis, Thebes, Karnak, and the Valley of the Kings outside Luxor, mirrors this legacy and has remained a significant focus of archaeologists and attractions all over the world.

Egypt is considered as largest and most diversified economy in the middle east with flourishing sectors of agriculture, tourism and other service industries.

Despite the fact that the country's Human Development increased from low to medium, growth is stunted in many areas like education industry. Main problem is that poverty still persists in most of the parts of the country which proves out to the main cause of hindrance for the country's growth and development though Government has adopted several significant measures like job opportunities and subsidy schemes meant to hasten economic growth.

Education in Egypt can be divided into 5 stages: Pre-higher education or Primary education (School education) which in made compulsory kindergarten admission at the age of 4. Middle Education where the child's aptitude is examined and paves the way for secondary education; Secondary Education which includes general, technical and vocational studies; Vocational Education which enhances specific skills if the student chooses to opt for job. Tertiary Education which includes admission in universities for high studies.

The tension between academic freedom and the responsibility of government to manage education is not yet fully resolved. Most university graduates struggle to find a job after graduating.

School and university students in general are not content with education system in Egypt. Egyptian school curriculum does not include adequate civic education, they believe society should give more value to vocational trading for blue-collar jobs.

There is high demand for qualified craftsmen, but still society looks down on these occupations as sometimes they do not require a university degree. Moreover most manual workers lack vocational training, and often learn their skills on the job.

Multiple crises such as: the H1N1 flu; the political revolution and elections has proved hindrance to the education system in the last couple of years and interrupted the teaching flow in the country.

Universal primary education, gender equality, poverty and hunger, employment, child mortality, maternal health, malaria and other diseases are the main goals to be achieved by the present government.
