EGE (School of Gouvernance and Economics, Rabat), is the leading school of Political Science in Morocco. It was founded in 2008 by a non-profit foundation with the aim of establishing a high-standard school of social, economic, political sciences. In 2015, it became the School of Governance, Social, Economic and Political Sciences and part of Mohamed VI University Polytechnic on the Benguerir Campus, about forty Kilometres north of Marrakech.
King Mohammed VI inaugurated Mohammed VI University on January 12th, 2017. EGE Rabat offers a five-year scheme of study broken down in two cycles. The first cycle takes up three years while the second cycle takes up two years. All study programs are accredited by the Moroccan educational authority.
Every year, EGE welcomes about 100 incoming students with higher academic credentials (at least a distinction of ‘Good’ or ‘Very Good’ on the High school Exam). In addition to fulfilling Pre-admission requirements, applicants take an admission test and compete for the seats available for a specific academic year.
EGE prides itself on being academically, socially and linguistically diverse and inclusive. It accommodates students from various socio-economic backgrounds, with “Baccalaureat” (The equivalent of High School Diploma) majors in different disciplines. Prospective students have the opportunity to choose either Arabic or French as the language of the admission test. Based on merit, EGE allows for several scholarships awarded to deserving students.
Ever since 2014, EGE has on offer an intensive Standard Arabic language program for the study of Social Sciences. Commonly known as PEASS, this program of Arabic has two overarching goals. It seeks over a limited period to consolidate Arabic language competencies and, for the same reason, enhance the academic skills and knowledge as well as tools needed for conducting research or study in the area of social sciences.
