On Sunday, the 21st of May 2006, up to twenty one of Kurdistan's academic leaders will arrive in Nottingham to attend a two week training course on management of modern institutes of higher education. Delegates will include Presidents, Vice Presidents and/or Deans of Colleges from the Universities of Duhok, Salahaddin, Hewlér Medical, Suleimani, Kerkuk and Koya (See table below). This training course is the third of its kind organised by the University of Nottingham for Kurdistan University leaders. The first was in October 2004, attended by 17 Iraqis, including seven from Duhok, Salahaddin and Suleimani Universities (below). The course was very successful and the delegates found it useful and satisfactory. This lead to the second training course held in June 2005 and attended by nine delegates from Duhok, Salahaddin, Suleimani and Koya Universities. Again, the candidates provided encouraging feedback and recommended a re-run for others in Kurdistan in 2006.

This year, the course promises to be even more successful and for the first time it will be attended by almost all the current Presidents of Kurdistan Universities. The course programme consists of lectures, tutorials, visits and meetings with Nottingham's senior academic leaders. Importantly, each delegate will have the opportunity to visit Departments and Colleges of their interest. A major objective of the course is to help Kurdistan's academic leaders establish strong personal links and active channels of communications with their counterparts in UK. Importantly, the course will offer delegates the opportunity to establish networks among Kurds in Diaspora (in UK and elsewhere). Conversely, it provides UK-based professionals the opportunity to offer their support for the reconstruction of Kurdistan's Institutes of Higher Education.
