(IRAQ: The Land Between the Two Rivers/ Mesopotamia)
Years of war has badly affected the Universities in Iraq, leaving them under-resourced and isolated from the Global Academic Community.
The stability that has recently set in Iraq has helped rebuild its infrastructure and the the Universities have since then, been able to open their doors again.
As the situation has improved, Iraqi Universities has been able to communicate with the Global Academic Community, especially in the United Kingdom, U.S.A and other countries to strengthen Iraqi's Higher Education system and equip talented Iraqi students with the skills they need to rebuild their country.
Iraqi Higher Education Institutions has now been able to reconnect with their counterparts around the world in order to share skills, knowledge and ideas, such as:
- Developments in Information Technology and Research Equipment
- Creating opportunities to network with Higher Education professionals from other countries.
- Strengthening and modernizing current approaches to teaching and learning in Higher Education.
- Knowledge-sharing in Higher Education, Learning and Research
Partner Universities have worked together to update and improve teaching, learning and research within the Iraqi Higher Education System, drawing upon the experience of Higher Education institutions from all over the World.
