BA Semester Middle East Studies


Are you interested in the modern Middle East and would you like to dive into the fascinating culture? In autumn 2019, the Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo offers a semester ‘Middle East Studies’ for bachelor and master students from the Humanities and the Social Sciences. Cairo, a bustling metropolis in the heart of the Middle East, will be your classroom.

MA students can apply for the programme with permission from their departments and with different assessment criteria.
