Alexandria, known as the Pearl of the Mediterranean, is Egypt’s second largest city and its largest seaport.
Pleasantly situated along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Alexandria is a popular travel destination for Egyptians, writers, and foreigners alike. Founded by Alexander the Great in 332 B.C., Alexandria’s roots began with the Greeks. The Pharos, Alexandria’s lighthouse, is one of the wonders of the Ancient World.
Today Alexandria is a bustling metropolis of almost four million people. In a city where ancient monuments and footsteps of Greeks and Romans give way to modern splendor, Alexandria has a rich cultural diversity all its own. The newly constructed Bibliotheca Alexandrina is adjacent to the university and situated right on the Mediterranean and will eventually hold more than 8 million volumes.
The School in the Middle East is based at Alexandria University, Egypt’s second largest university. With a strong emphasis on research, and a rich background in liberal arts, Alexandria University is an excellent host for students of all academic backgrounds.
