The number of Egyptian students studying in the UK rose 70% in the past six years, going from 1,695 in the 2014/15 academic year to 2,895 this year, according to education search platform Erudera. 2,585 of these Egyptian students are studying in England, 200 students are in Scotland, 90 are in Wales, and just 25 are in Northern Ireland.
As one of the leading destinations for post-secondary education, the UK attracts hundreds of thousands of students from across the globe - approximately 485,000 annually. Although Egyptians studying in the UK is nothing new, what’s surprising is how suddenly the numbers jumped up. Between 2011 to 2018, the number of Egyptian students in the UK only grew by 5% - it’s only afterwards that numbers skyrocketed to such dizzying heights.
