UCL Dental Team Visit

As part of UCL’s collaboration to establish Schools of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy at Newgiza University, Eastman Director Professor Stephen Porter visited the NGU School of Dentistry earlier this month. As well as engaging discussions with NGU’s Dean of Dentistry Professor Randa Elsalawy and other faculty members, Professor Porter was also able to meet with the first cohort of students, all of whom were excited to commence their studies at the university.



White Coat Ceremony

At the NGU’s 1st ever White Coat Ceremony, students pledged their commitment to their professions and to the health of the patients they will serve in the future. In attendance at the ceremony were Dr Sameh Farid, Prof Deborah Gill, President of the Supreme Council of Universities Ashraf Hatem, British Ambassador John Casson, and Dr Lamis Ragab, NGU Vice President. As this first class of Newgiza University students embark on their academic journey, they will forever remember this day, when their familiar lab coat came to symbolise something much more impressive: the care and healing of others

Beginning of Term

Organised by the Office of Student Affairs, the three day event consisted of informational sessions as well
as various team-building activities. Its aim was to introduce the students to NGU and ensure a smooth transition into medical school. The first day started off with a welcome address by Dr. Sameh Farid and various other faculty members, who sought to familiarize the new students with the NGU ethos and give an idea about what to expect during their first year at the university. As well as the welcome speeches,students were introduced to the NGU educational system, semester structure, and campus rules and regulations, ensuring they were equipped with all the information they needed to begin their studies at NGU.

UCL Launches Partnership with Egypt’s Newgiza University

In January of 2016, a delegation of leading UCL officials and professors visited the NGU campus to undertake a thorough assessment of the university’s capabilities and capacity for providing the finest higher education available, in line with UCL’s international standards. NGU’s groundbreaking campus, with a focus on innovative learning and an engaging research-based education was found to be highly impressive, as were the long-term plans to establish an international centre of academic excellence. Senior faculty and staff from the Medical, Dental and Pharmacy Schools at UCL will work closely together with their NGU colleagues. This entails strategic planning, organization and governance of the new programs; infrastructure and educational resources development; development of curricula and learning resources; faculty and senior staff recruitment; faculty development and education quality assurance. The visit by UCL’s representatives was extremely successful, paving the way
for a long-term partnership, and in April 2016, NGU and UCL officially entered into an academic collaboration.
