Al Fanar Media (AFM) – a project of the Alexandria Trust – is an independent nonprofit news organization focusing on higher education, research and culture in the Arab region. All AFM stories, commentary and resources are published in both Arabic and English.
It offers its readers a database of scholarships from around the world, and a daily newsletter in Arabic, bringing the latest developments in higher education in the Arab world. It also provides a bi-monthly newsletter to subscribers highlighting its most prominent stories, and another newsletter about higher education issues for refugees and in conflict zones.
Al-Fanar Media staff has, in the last year, met several UNIMED staff, associates and partners to conduct interviews and investigate some issues relating to the university world in the Mediterranean region.
It has recently launched its new website to ease the navigation for the readers. “The website also provides its content in English, to address University educators and students in the Arab world and other interested readers in the wider public, through content that focuses on all education levels, including pre-university education, undergraduate and graduate students, as well as academics and researchers across interests and disciplines.”
