Coventry University will offer the same curriculum, teaching methodologies, quality assurance, providing the exact same bachelor’s degree offered in the UK. In addition, Mr. Ihab Salama presented the facilities The Knowledge Hub will offer to our students and the strategic plan for the institution.
In addition to participating in EduGate, on the 26th to the 28th of February, The Knowledge Hub sponsored the British Trophy event by “BESA”, an annual football tournament that raises athletic awareness amongst students in international schools in Egypt.
The Knowledge Hub is very keen on participating in these two events for the opportunity to introduce Coventry University to students in the region, the objective is to impart the experience to the new generation and strengthen them through knowledge. As a university, the priority is to equip students with the tools and skillsets that prepare them for the competitive job market and provide them with opportunities to positively impact the local and international economy.

Phase one of the campus is expected to open this September, on an area of 27,000 sqm.
