What is a RECOGNISED TEACHING CENTRE (RTC)? We are the 1st UOL RTC to operate in Egypt. We operate under the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (AASTMT), in two of its AASTMT Campuses (Heliopolis and Smart Village). Which means our institution is recognised by UOL to show excellence in teaching the LSE courses and in providing support to students in terms of academics and administrative issues. Our recognised teaching centre has been receiving commendation letters for the past four years from both UOL and LSE, for excellent pass rates and students’ results.

What are the entry requirements?
- Math Placement Exam (in-house)
- Personal Statement (500 words)
- English Proficiency Exam
- High school qualification requirements
If these requirements are met the student is then enrolled as a degree student, which means he/she will start the 12 courses of the degree right away. We follow a British credit hour system, 360 credit hours, distributed among 12 modules. Each module is taught over a full academic year. If these requirements are not met then the student is enrolled as a CHESS student. We are the only RTC in Egypt that delivers the CHESS track which is CertHE Social Sciences (Certificate of Higher Education in Social Sciences) which means the student can start in the 12 courses but at a slower rate (year 1- two courses only) and year 2 (2 courses only) followed by 8 courses on the following two years.
