The German University in Cairo (GUC), which opened its Berlin branch in October 2012, aims to create a space for German-Egyptian encounter as well as a hub for international academic, scientific, and cultural exchange. Students at the GUC Berlin Branch will be able to study in English in Berlin, Germany, where they will be able to not only pursue their academic careers but also gain valuable life experience during their stay in the German capital. The campus is conveniently located in the beautiful district of Alt-Tegel close to the Tegeler See (lake), the second largest lake in Berlin. The eastern side of Tegler See leads to a harbor known as Borsighafen, which was the landing pier for the once-famous Borsigwerke (Borsig works). All academic programs/courses at the GUC Berlin branch are taught in English by renowned German and international professors and lecturers. The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) is used to create curricula with international compatibility to promote student mobility and ensure high quality and transparency of recognition procedures. Moreover, the offered Semester Exchange and Master programs are accredited by the Accreditation Certification and Quality Assurance Institute (ACQUIN). At the GUC Berlin branch, students benefit from practice-oriented teaching and a strong emphasis on the unity of teaching and research (Alexander von Humboldt principle) Students are divided into small-sized classes which ensures personal attention and promotes interactions and understanding.
