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.

"If you want to learn the Arabic language seriously, visit ILI!" Seriously, this was by far the best course I have ever attended, and I have experience with different schools. I am finally fit in Arabic grammar and that's a really big success for me. A big compliment to Wisam, my teacher, her teaching style could not be better. I look forward to continue my training in Arabic language at ILI next year, if I find time to do that. The institute ILI is well equipped and well organized. I can't find a point of criticism. Compliments to all the staff at ILI, they all do a very good job!
