The establishment of the University of Zakho was a new vision and a long term strategy that coincided with our higher education reforming process which was undertaken by the KRG Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. Our mission is to achieve a quality teaching and an advanced scientific research which will improve the learning outcomes and training programs, protect the rights of the students, improve the status of the teaching staff, and elevate the standards of teaching by implementing the teaching quality assurance program and continuing the academic development. Furthermore, the establishment of a new split-site program with various centers of excellence in various parts of the world will improve the standards of our graduates and open new communication avenues with these worldwide recognized universities and research centers that will participate in the internationalization process of the university and the development of UoZ teaching staff via common supervision of postgraduate projects, carrying joint research projects as well as short and long term visits between partner universities. On the behalf of the UoZ staff, I am pleased to invite you to visit the website of UoZ, and I hope you will find some useful information, news, and other university activities. In addition, we hope that the website of the University of Zakho will open doors for students and academics to visit UoZ. Your comments and suggestions will be highly appreciated and useful for the development of the University of Zakho and its website.
