The Supreme Council of Universities (SCU) said faculties will resume classes on 5 March.

Meanwhile, in response to the demands of the 25 January revolution, all student unions and affiliated committees will be dissolved. Legal measures will be taken so transparent elections can be held within 60 days of the start of the second semester.

The SCU held a meeting on Saturday presided over by Education Minister Ahmed Gamal Eddin Moussa at the SCU secretariat, which is at Cairo University.

It also agreed to hold discussions with faculty members to develop legislation to promote education. It will furthermore form a committee to evaluate proposals for the increase of faculty members' salaries in accordance with their performance.
