Throughout the year, NVIC offers courses that are open to the general public. The following courses are now open for registration: Introduction to Ancient Egypt, Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language, Intensive Beginner's Course Egyptian Colloquial Arabic, and Survival Arabic Group Lessons.
The NVIC organises weekly lectures (on Thursday) and films (on Sunday) on a variety of subjects. During May, the 'Palestine Month', we try to present part of the rich cultural memory and traditions which Palestinians tirelessly try to uphold, defend and preserve. Moreover, we take a look at the current situation from different angles.
On Friday the 6th of May - on the first day of a three-day conference - two eminent scholars, professor Dr Olaf Kaper of Leiden University and Dr Gillian Vogelsang of the Textile Research Centre in Leiden, presented their lectures on textiles and embroidery found in the tomb of Tutankhamun.
On 29 March 2016, the library of the Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo organised the very first edition of the Spring Book Fair. It turned out to be a great success!
From 30 March until 10 May 2016, Professor Dr Pavlos Kavouras will hold a series of lectures and films titled "Representing the migrant self: Video-life stories of migrants in Greece". The series will take place on the New Cairo campus of AUC.
