Background/aim The progress of any nation depends on the academic achievement and professional development of its young, and for this reason every nation emphasizes on the achievements and development of its students. Thus, the aim of the present study was to assess the quality of life of some Mansoura University students in the Faculty of Education and the Faculty of Medicine. Methods This cross-sectional study was carried out at Mansoura University on 150 students by using a questionnaire designed during lectures. Results We found a significant difference in the quality of life between Malaysian and Egyptian students, as the mean score for Malaysian students was 160.42 (high) and for Egyptians it was 131.94 (good). There was no significant difference in the quality of life between male and female students, as the mean score for males was 134.22 (good) and for females 144.43 (good). There was no significant difference as regards the reaction between nationality and sex on the quality of life between the four groups (Egyptian males, Egyptian females, Malaysian males, and Malaysian females) and their mean scores were 129.32, 133.47, 158, and 160.88 (good, good, high, and high), respectively. There was no significant difference between the students of the Faculty of Education (132.36) and Egyptian students of the Faculty of Medicine (131.52). Conclusion The quality of life of Malaysian students living in Egypt was better than that of Egyptian students; it did not differ much between male and female students. Moreover, the quality of life was not affected by nationality if sex was taken into consideration. Comparing Egyptian students in both faculties (Medicine and Education) showed no significant difference as regards the quality of life.
