  • Description

    CAIRO'S UNIVERSITY IS THE LARGEST IN THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, AND HAS FACILITIES FOR ABOUT 55,000 STUDENTS. YOUNG PEOPLE COME FROM MANY FOREIGN COUNTRIES-INCLUDING THE U.S.A., PALESTINE AND ALL OVER AFRICA - TO STUDY AT THE UNIVERSITY.

    CAIRO UNIVERSITY HAS MOST FACULTIES RANGING FROM THE ARTS AND SCIENCE TO POLITICAL SCIENCE. COURSES ARE NORMALLY FOUR YEARS IN DURATI??? EXCEPT IN THE CASES OF LAW AND MEDICINE.

    TO OVERCOME THE LANGUAGE PROBLEM PRESENTED BY SO MANY FOREIGN STUDENTS, THE UNIVERSITY HAS TRANSLATED MOST OF ITS TEXTBOOKS INTO ENGLISH AND FRENCH.

    AT VARIOUS POINTS AROUND THE UNIVERSITY THERE ARE MILITARY POSTERS FROM THE FEDAYEEM AND THE ARMY. SINCE THE SIX-DAY WAR THERE HAS BEEN A CAMPAIGN TO IMPROVE THE INTELLECTUAL STANDARD OF THE U.A.R. ARMY. GRADUATES ARE NOW BEING MADE TO DO THEIR NATIONAL SERVICE IN THE RANKS, AND OFFICIALS CLAIM MORALE AND EFFICIENCY HAVE IMPROVED NOTICEABLY. MO ACTUAL MILITARY TRAINING IS CARRIED OUT AT THE UNIVERSITY.

    ONCE THEY GRADUATE, STUDENTS FROM CAIRO UNIVERSITY DO NOT HAVE A CHOICE OF WHAT THEY DO FOR A CAREER. THEY ALL WORK FOR THE STATE, AND GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS PUT UP LISTS OF THOSE THEY REQUIRE. THE LIST FOR VARIOUS JOBS IS FILLED ACCORDING TO THE APTITUDES OF THE GRADUATES. STUDENTS CAN STATE A PREFERENCE FOR A PARTICULAR CAREER, BUT THEY ARE NOT CONSULTED PERSONALLY.
