The Ministry of Higher
Education and Scientific Research commended the recent University of Kurdistan
Hewler achievement of ASIC international accreditation.
“We applaud UKH for
receiving the ASIC accreditation,” said Minister Yusif Goran in a meeting at the Ministry that was attended
by the Ministry’s director generals, advisors and leading representatives of
the public and private universities. “This accreditation falls in line with the
Ministry’s strategy and policy for all universities to achieve institutional
and programme accreditations.”
Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities (ASIC), which is an
independent international educational standards assessment agency based in the
United Kingdom, awarded UKH the premier institutional accreditation certificate
in December 2018, making the University the only recipient throughout Iraq.
On behalf of UKH, Dr
Mohammed Mochtar thanked the Minister for the appreciation event and said that UKH has made huge efforts since its foundation to go alongside
the global academic and scientific developments. He then highlighted a few key
characteristics of UKH that has enabled it to achieve the ASIC accreditation,
including the decentralization and independence of UKH as a public academic
institution, independent and professional staff recruitment services, and competitive
student recruitment strategy.
Dr Mochtar also
reiterated the UKH’s support for other universities in raising the standards
and achieving accreditations.
