This paper presents an overview of the higher education and quality assurance systems in the Arab Republic of Egypt. Egypt is known for its prosperous history in the field of education and higher education dating back to 5000 years ago. The system of higher education has undergone considerable changes and improvements since then. The introduction of the quality assurance system in 2000 and the establishment of the National Agency of Quality Assurance and Accreditation of Education (NAQAAE) in 2006 well attest that. This paper provides a descriptive account of the history, structure and main properties of the higher education system and quality assurance in pre and post COVID19 in the country. The data presented reveals abundant promise in the evolution of the higher education system in Egypt, especially in its ability to own an accreditation body that offers accreditation certificates at a national level. Moreover, Egypt is making thoughtful steps towards digitalization especially with the implementation of the blended education imposed due to the COVID19 pandemic.
