2009-09-29

It will soon be easier for doctoral students from Egypt to study at Queen’s. The university and the Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research have signed an agreement encouraging full-time doctoral students to study at the university in specific graduate programs.

“Egypt is seeking opportunities for its students to do advanced study at top-tier universities in Canada," says Associate Vice-Principal and Dean of Graduate Studies Janice Deakin. "This agreement will open doors for Egyptian students while providing us with great access to some of that country’s most promising doctoral students.”

The Egyptian Bureau will promote the program to Egyptian universities and students. Candidates follow the normal admissions procedures with Queen’s graduate programs funding the differential cost between the domestic and international tuition for each participating student.

The Egyptian government will provide a scholarship for the domestic portion of the student’s tuition and support for health insurance, living costs and travel. Funding is guaranteed for up to four years of the doctoral program.
