Faculty of Arts & Humanities (FOAH) at the British University in Egypt (BUE)


GALA Member



The BUE is a private University in Egypt.The formation of a British University in Egypt arose from a 1998 Memorandum of Cooperation between the UK and the Egyptian Governments. It was envisaged that such an institution would produce graduates of UK standards for key sectors of the Egyptian economy, particularly in the areas of engineering, computer science and business studies.Planning for the new institution was put in train and financial support was provided by a group of prominent Egyptian business and public figures, principal among st whom was Mr. Farid Khamis, Chairman of Oriental Weavers, a major international carpet manufacturing company. In 2004, with strong support from the British Embassy and the British Council, a Presidential decree was issued establishing the British University in Egypt. The initial phase of the University campus was already under construction and the University welcomed its first cohort (only 200 students) of undergraduate students in September 2005.

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities at the British University in Egypt comprises three Departments:
1. The Department of Basic and Applied Psychology;

2. The Department of English Language and Literature (which offers three career-oriented specialisations: Linguistics, Literature and Translation);

3. The Department of Chinese Language and Culture.

Our partnership with LSBU ensures you receive broader experiential learning opportunities and an internationally recognized degree with quality UK education that meets global standards. One of the main attractions of joining the Faculty of Arts at the British University in Egypt is the opportunity to spend either a semester or a summer programme abroad at our partner university in England. This experience aims to increase proficiency in the area of study, while also allowing students to be exposed to other cultures and meet the challenge of communicating with a broad range of people and expertise.
