Prof. Dr. Ali Muhiddin Qaradaghi
I am honored to introduce you to some fatherly and sincere directions which are: Knowledge is the basis of every progress and civilization, and the key of empowerment and succession, but the originative and influential knowledge can be achieved only by the one who gives his life to it, lives in its hermitage, and loves its chancel; therefore I wish you be of those brilliants. My hope is that you will hold the keys, values, and the methods of knowledge so that you can be pioneers, stars and suns of knowledge. I advise you not to graduate from the university unless you have placed yourself on the road of knowledge and creativity. We aim at professionalism and the achievement of the best in the service of the students, and the best in the connection between the university and the social institutions theoretically , searchingly, and practically. We want to develop the human being and the society, so the only privilege in our consideration will be the scientific qualification, excluding any other influence.
The Best of Luck

Founded in 2008, the University of Human
Development (UHD) has been a leading higher educational institution in the
Kurdistan Region of Iraq. UHD has a professional and qualified teaching
staff and administrative staff. It provides modern facilities and equipment for
the learning process. It also has sports and entertainment facilities.
UHD is among the best universities in the Kurdistan
Region. It has a proud academic record thanks to the hard work of its lecturers,
researchers, administrators and students. At UHD, we make sure that our
students, who are largely from the Kurdistan Region but also from Iraq and the neighboring states, have the best learning atmosphere and get equipped
with the necessary skills and qualifications so that they can do well in the
labour market and be able to study for postgraduate degrees at the national and
international universities. UHD certificate is recognized in Europe and
North America, and it is recognized in other parts of the world.
We support our alumni in finding jobs or pursuing
post-graduate studies. We invite them to the academic activities we hold on the
UHD campus or online. Many of our alumni occupy important positions in the
public and private sectors. They are now serving their communities.
UHD has signed collaboration agreements and
memorandum of understanding with many universities and academic institutions in
and outside the Kurdistan Region to cooperate on matters related to enhancing
education and scientific research and the well-being of society. There are many
joint conferences, symposiums, workshops, seminars and debates held annually
between UHD and other national and international universities and academic
institutions. In the past, UHD has held many workshops and opened short and
long courses on quality assurance, public relations…etc for officers and
administrators in the public sector in Kurdistan, and it will continue the
trend in the future.
Acquiring accreditation and high ranking have
priorities for UHD. We are accredited by prominent international accreditors,
and we have been in the first best group of Kurdistan Region’s universities
according to the National Ranking of the Universities in Kurdistan which is
released annually by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research
of the Kurdistan Regional Government and have obtained a high position in the
international ranking systems.
Then, I would like to ensure you that you would be
making the right choice in applying to our university to pursue your future
