Dear readers and students,
On behalf of the Nawroz University Council, I am honored to welcome you to our official website.
Nawroz University (NZU) was founded in 2004 as the Kurdistan Region's first private university. Despite its young age, it managed to establish a significant academic status in the KRI and Iraq.
Nawroz University realizes that the foundation of human resources is individual intelligence and skills. To this end, it seeks, through its various scientific departments, to contribute to preparing individuals with skills, expertise, and leadership qualities at the personal and societal levels. This sustainable mobility, on which the university map has been based is therefore, upheld by faculty, researchers, and students at our university collectively.
The basis for the university's work is excellent lectures, quality education and scientific research in the theoretical and practical fields, while not ignoring the role of impartial and professional quality control to lay the ground for academic and ongoing education.
Nawroz University attaches great importance to its scientific and cultural ties at local and international levels. As regards the local level, the university is the nearest scientific and cultural observatory to the residents of the region who see it as a source of pride and inspiration.
Nawroz University includes five colleges, besides several centers and directorates specializing in fields of science, culture, services, and training. Constructed on an appropriate land area, this university has a campus that includes buildings for the five colleges besides the central library. The adjacent buildings comprise the NZU presidency, faculty housing, restaurants, while green gardens and sports facilities are in the middle. The campus of Nawroz University is a safe and comfortable hub in the western part of Duhok City.
For more information on NZU, I invite you to visit our official website.
With warm regards,
Abulwahab Khalid Mosa
