It gives me great pleasure to cordially welcome you to the webpage of the Education and Student Affairs Sector, which provides a clear picture and good follow-up of everything related to the educational process at Pharos University.

Among its objectives is providing visitors with the sector’s statement of the vision, mission and strategic goals, which stem from the university’s vision and mission. This aims to promote education through the establishment of an integrated academic system in which we seek to provide a stimulating academic environment to ensure outstanding educational outcomes that align with the current economic challenges and development plans. It realizes the aspirations of our beloved country and contributes actively to its prosperity and competition on par with the prominent nations of the world.

Since the emergence of the 2030 vision, Egyptian universities, both public and private, have been on a historic journey of digital transformation and development to keep pace with this national developmental momentum in all fields. They aim to be at the forefront of the institutions contributing to realizing the vision’s objectives, driven by their deep belief in the impact of these orientations on shaping the nation’s future. Furthermore, they take initiatives by mobilizing all their educational, research, and service capabilities to maximize their capacities and strategic presence in the national transformation program.

The leading role of the Education and Student Affairs Sector at Pharos University has had a profound impact on providing educational services to our students following national and international quality and accreditation standards, which falls in line with the developments of the era regarding e-learning and the development of information infrastructure. This has contributed to raising the educational performance levels and meeting the requirements of achieving educational effectiveness standards, as well as adopting effective policies for education and learning, and providing the necessary material resources and a favorable educational environment for our students. Perhaps this role is best manifested through the development of academic plans and programs, the introduction of new academic programs and the encouragement of university activities.

The Education and Student Affairs Sector prioritises providing all necessary means of support, care and guidance to students, which is undoubtedly achieved through the generous unlimited support from the university administration along with the combined efforts of relevant faculties and centres. This support is nothing but the fruit of their strong belief in their role in achieving comprehensive national development.

As a culmination of the remarkable transformation witnessed by Egyptian universities, Pharos University’s initiative has necessitated a redefinition of its identity to align with the shifts in the knowledge economy and the 4th and 5th industrial revolutions. It earnestly strives to become an exemplary model of higher education institutions in the twenty-first century by building an educational system focused on development and innovation, striving to pave the way for qualified professionals capable of competing in the job market to support the national industrial and service sectors.

It is noteworthy that Pharos University’s commitment to offering quality educational programs that meet the demands of the job market, align with the community’s needs, and provide individuals with a qualitative edge both academically and professionally, and to further strengthen its commitment to quality, the university has launched new quality programs that complement their existing counterparts across all faculties.

It is also worth mentioning that the university pays great attention to students coming from various countries, especially Arab countries, by providing them with care and involving them in various student activities, considering them as ambassadors of Egypt abroad.

Finally, I renew my welcome to the esteemed visitors of the Education and Student Affairs Sector webpage at Pharos University hoping that the future of our university will witness the achievements and contributions it aspires to.
