  • Improve the quality of Higher Education in Kurdistan;
  • Develop new and innovative education programmes;
  • Modernise the Higher Education system in Kurdistan through policy reform;
  • Create and implement national legislation which will facilitate the accreditation of joint and double degrees, the recognition of studies abroad, and the ECTS;
  • Foster cooperation across different regions of the world via joint initiatives and collaborative action;
  • Strengthen management structures and services geared towards international relations;
  • Develop advanced strategic polices regarding the internationalisation of education, collaborative research, academic mobility, and international student services within Kurdistan which will bring Kurdish HEIs closer to their European counterparts;
  • Transfer best practices and disseminate knowledge so as to understand how to cooperate within the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and European Research Area (ERA).

Expected Impact:

The TIGRIS Project is anticipated to exert the following short-term and long-term academic and social impacts:

  • Increased interest and recognition of the importance of internationalisation in stutdent and staff development;
  • The creation of a framework for the recognition of studies conducted abroad;
  • The establishment of joint ventures/programmes (both national and international);
  • The creation of a group of experts tasked with disseminating knowledge about the EHEA system and transferring knowledge to other HEIs and the wider academic community;
  • The internationalisation of the HE system in Kurdistan;
  • The development of a benchmarking tool for mapping the quality of internationalisation in Kurdish HEIs;
  • Lifelong learning skills for senior managers and International Relations Officers;
  • The integration of internationalisation strategies within HEIs;
  • An increased quality of education in Kurdistan;
