NCUK and AAISC Partner Up to Offer International Foundation Year at Smart Village Campus


Last week, NCUK attended the EDRES event with new partner AAISC (part of Arab Academy) in New Cairo. The event provided an excellent opportunity for both institutions to introduce their brand new partnership to prospective students and their parents interested in pursuing a degree abroad.

Andrew Straughan, NCUK’s Regional Director, said, “The event was a great opportunity to introduce NCUK’s International Foundation Year into the Cairo market, especially given it will now be available from AAISC’s Smart Village Campus from September 2023. Egypt has significant potential and will continue to be a key strategic market for further development.”


NCUK’s International Foundation Year is an internationally recognised qualification designed specifically for international students who wish to study in the UK or other English-speaking countries. This qualification provides a comprehensive academic preparation for undergraduate degree courses, and successful completion guarantees* entry to one of NCUK’s Partner Universities.

AAISC, part of the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport, is a highly esteemed institution in Egypt known for its exceptional educational programmes and facilities. The collaboration between NCUK and AAISC will offer unparalleled opportunities for students in the region to gain access to world-class education at top universities in the UK and beyond.

The partnership will provide students with access to a range of benefits, including personalised support from experienced staff, access to high-quality resources and facilities and unique opportunities for personal and professional development.

NCUK and AAISC are committed to providing the best possible education and support for international students and the new partnership marks an exciting step forward in this endeavour.
