October University for Modern Sciences and Arts (MSA, over 7000 students) was established in 1996 as the first private University in Egypt. MSA has 8 faculties; its main objective is to provide the Egyptian and Middle Eastern students with the best of British Higher Education. MSA was the first Egyptian University to seek and achieve validation of its programs according to the UK Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) through its validation agreements with Middlesex & Greenwich Universities. It has created a distinct profile for itself as an open, socially committed and pluralistic university in a broad international perspective.
