IFSA-Butler Closes Egypt Programs

After more than six years in Cairo and Alexandria, IFSA-Butler has made the difficult decision to close our Egypt programs. We are especially grateful to our resident director, Dr. Mohamed El-Komi, for his dedication to our students in Cairo and Alexandria. He has consistently gone above and beyond to serve our students, working hard to foster an environment conducive to learning and supportive of their personal and academic growth. We also thank staff members Moataz El Gazar and Nihal Attia for their student support and assistance on site in Alexandria.

IFSA-Butler is committed to quality academic and cultural opportunities in the Middle East. We encourage students interested in the region to consider our semester and summer Arabic language and Middle Eastern studies programs in Israel or our semester and summer options at SOAS, University of London. Students, parents and advisors are also welcome to contact our office at 800-858-0229 to discuss other program options
