North Africa and Middle East

Almost 1,000 alumni of the University of Oxford are based in the Middle East, concentrated mainly in Israel and the UAE.

The region has alumni groups in nine countries: Iran, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. There is also an area contact in Qatar. 

There are also small numbers of alumni across North Africa, where one joint Oxford and Cambridge alumni group is based - in Morocco.
