Government-provided medical care in Egypt is very poor, and private care expensive. We therefore advise you to purchase comprehensive medical insurance before coming to Egypt. We recommend StudentGuard, used by many IH schools. Please note that you do NOT require vaccinations for yellow fever or cholera but we recommend that for up-to-date health information you refer to your own government-provided travel advice, or the World Health Organisation's website. These information portals should be able to inform you of the vaccinations/medications required for Egypt at any given time.

 

If you are taking medication regularly, or indeed if you take specific vitamins/supplements, please bring a sufficient supply. While many medications and vitamins are available here in Egypt, some are not. If you have any doubts, feel free to contact our students affairs department for information on local availability.

Will you go with me to the cafeteria now?

"Great quality education at an affordable price." I would highly recommend ILI to anyone interested in picking up the basics of Arabic quickly. I studied Fusha and Ameia for four months here and my Arabic has never improved faster. The teachers are very friendly and make the courses both challenging and fun. I would definitely come back again if I had the chance.
