Higher Education Minister Sayyed Abdel-Khaleq said on Sunday that the new academic year would start on October 11.
There would not be any further delays, he promised.
The minister made these remarks during his participation in the 16th Creative Students Forum affiliated to The Arab Council for Training Students of Arab Universities (ACTSAU) at the grand conference hall of Tanta University.
The forum was organized under the theme of bridging the gap between education outputs and labor market needs.
He added that the universities' administration would punish students who do not abide by regulations and cause on-campus violence.
