Eight-year Egyptian plan for higher education
Egypt has announced a US$5.87 billion higher education plan – to run in two phases from 2014 to 2022 and including 61 initiatives – aimed at producing more market-ready graduates and promoting a knowledge-based economy, reported CINVU.
The Plan for Higher Education, which includes creating five new universities a year, was unveiled by Minister of Higher Education Al-Sayyed Abdel-Khaleq. The budget to implement it will be obtained by constitutional entitlement, as articles 19 and 21 of the 2014 national charter require the state to allocate at least 4% of the budget to education, 2% to higher education and 1% to scientific research.
