I would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to our website. I am delighted about your interest in our University. As President of Knowledge University, I am very proud to be part of an institution that offers market-driven programmes with a widening horizon in the future of this region.

One of the most important decisions to be made by an aspiring student is to select the best option with regard to further education. It is possible to select from the wide range on offer available to you locally, or you may prefer to broaden your horizons and explore the options for a suitable program in a foreign country. The decision to further your studies at a university will bring about a number of additional decisions to be made. For example, in which learning institution would have your preference?

Knowledge University (KNU) is one of the largest private universities in Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI), with vast campus located in the south of Erbil the regional capital. Our large green campus is renown amongst our academic community. At KNU, internationalisation of education and global experiences are the key issues. Quality is the key feature of the KNU vision. We strive to achieve a level of quality that will match that of any higher education institution in the local and global context.

KNU focuses particular attention on the parameters necessary for ensuring the smooth progress of studies, such as market-driven study career through close supervision, education and examination timetables, feedback regarding assessments and assignments, study progress monitoring and consulting, information provision and the accessibility of teaching staff when needed as well as a university-wide e-Smart system to allow our students to interact with their classes.

We strive to be an educational institution that ‘inspires growth through support & challenges’. This is also something that you will notice throughout KNU, i.e. in the course programmes, in the teaching staff, in the personal supervision that you will receive and in the facilities available. At KNU, you will learn in a supportive community with others and we will provide you with intensive supervision throughout this process.

Nevertheless, at KNU the main point is putting our priority to our impacts on our immediate communities, both in the field of teaching and research. We strive to give new meaning to education by empowering you to seek knowledge, affirm skills and ensure excellence in your future professional career. This shows our commitment to preparing you with skills that play a vital role wherever you engage in the future. 

And last but not least, choosing KNU for your further education shall be a choice you will not regret!

We wish you every success in selecting your further education programme and warmly welcome you to Knowledge University.
