British Validation[edit]

MSA was the pioneer in Egypt to validate its programs with British Universities in 2002.

It is the first Egyptian university to grant its graduates a dual-origin bachelor's degree; namely a British degree from Middlesex (2002-2014), Bedfordshire (2014-present) or Greenwich (2002–present) universities, and another Egyptian degree which is accredited by the Egyptian Supreme Council for Universities. Thus, MSA University graduates enjoy the privilege of attaining scholarships and have the chance to pursue their MA and PhD studies in the United Kingdom.
