The Egyptian Ministry of Education announced today that they started their online application service for the Egyptian-Japanese schools in Egypt. Students will be able to apply on the ministry’s official website only for two weeks.
The Egyptian-Japanese school is a new attempt towards bettering the educational system in Egypt. It all started with President Abdelfattah El-Sisi’s visit to Japan that resulted in an agreement under the title “Egyptian-Japanese Partnership in Education”.
Both countries agreed to send Egyptian teachers and staff to Japan for two weeks to learn new “Takkosu” teaching techniques and methods. Moreover, the agreement mandates that the school fees will only be symbolic.
In October 2017, right before the start of the academic year, Egyptian Minister of Education Tarek Shawky revealed a plan for postponing the launch of the Egyptian-Japanese schools until the schools can meet the required standards. He stated that the ministry didn’t want to rush the experience.
Students can now apply for the Egyptian-Japanese schools for a 10,000 EGP tuition fee.
