Location: Cairo University (Giza City)
In March 2016, “Hiroshima University Cairo Center” opened on the campus of Cairo University in Egypt.
The goal of setting up this center is to promote academic and educational exchange between HU and Egypt. Its functions include securing excellent international students, providing support for study abroad, supporting joint researches and researchers’ exchange, and to act as a base to introduce Japanese affairs and disseminate other information.
With the establishment of this center, it is expected that the exchange between HU and the universities in Egypt will expand further.
