Extended Education Hub

Building on the strong track record of AUC’s existing extended education programs, the Extended Education Hub will  bring together and expand the wide array of AUC offerings that support capacity building, technical training and professional development of the country and region’s workforce.

Adopting an expansive view on lifelong learning, the Extended Education Hub will integrate a holistic approach to identifying gaps, developing programs and courses, experimenting with delivery techniques and evaluating results across sectors, age groups and demographics. 

The hub will build on the strong track record of AUC’s existing programs, currently provided by the School of Continuing Education, School of Business Executive Education, technical and diploma programs in the School of Sciences and Engineering, and professional development for government employees and civil servants in the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy. The new building that will house the hub will bring together each of these areas to create synergies and efficiencies while fostering growth across all segments. Positioned near the monorail station, the hub is well-placed to serve the professional and career development needs of the diverse workforce in the New Administrative Capital.

School of Continuing Education

The School of Continuing Education (SCE) connects AUC to the Egyptian community by providing exceptional quality education for about 20,000 student participants annually across the region. Egypt now lies on the brink of a great leap forward as part of its Vision 2030 national development plan, with expanding access to education as a cornerstone of this goal. Targeting individuals who may not be able to access AUC’s regular degree offerings, SCE’s expansion will facilitate mass outreach and offer access to a socioeconomically diverse population. 

SCE will become a lighthouse reaching satellite institutions across the region by providing accessible education as a key component of teacher development and pre-college student development where advanced academic instruction and practical application are combined. SCE’s long-term vision is to provide training and education to tens, if not hundreds, of  thousands of  teachers and pre-college students looking to improve their English-language, computer, and other professional and communication skills as they prepare to apply for university and higher learning opportunities. The New Cairo campus accommodates approximately half of SCE’s face-to-face enrollments. Within the next five years, the New Cairo seat count is projected to increase considerably. Allocating space for SCE on the New Cairo campus addresses a pressing need to provide continuing education to an expanding and socioeconomically diverse community committed to its own professional growth.
