Egypt’s Minister of Education Tarek Shawki signed on Sunday the protocol for regulating the earning of the US diploma in Egypt with representatives of accredited educational institutions in the United States.

The Ministry of Education's Spokesperson Ahmed Khairy said that the protocol is part of the ministry's efforts to ensure that foreign certificates earned inside Egypt meet the educational standards in home countries, referring to an earlier decision by the ministry to regulate the accreditation of British certificates in the country.

The protocol aims at preserving the rigorous standards of the American diploma through examination and assessment methods, while protecting student's rights and bettering their education.

Minister Shawky said that the protocol will help provide affordable, world-class education to Egyptian students.

According to the ministry, the implementation of the protocol and the subsequent accreditation of US diplomas in Egypt will be provided by the legally acknowledged US accreditation bodies including the New England for Schools and Colleges, and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
