The minister of higher education and scientific research announced that
one of the strategic plans of the ministry of higher education and
scientific research is to internationalize Kurdistan Universities.
According to the plan, we started to send ten capable students of
Kurdistan universities to the Republic of China.
I (Dilan Jawhar) was
the representative of Soran University and a member of the delegation.
After I stayed in China for 12 days, I came back to Kurdistan with a new experience.
main purpose of this trip was to be familiar with the history, culture,
development of China, and the level of education in its universities.
In this trip, I also visited Beijing Foreign Studies University which is
one of the top universities in China where fifty foreign languages are
studied. In this university, we introduced Kurdistan by giving a
presentation about Kurdistan and we suggested for them to open Kurdish
language department in that university. In addition, I visited four
great cities in China which were: Shanghai, Suzhou, Nanjing, and
Beijing. In these cities, I familiarized with the most important
historical and tourism places of China.
At the end of our trip we
proposed that this kind of trip should continue in coming years for
other students in Kurdistan and we expressed our appreciation to the
minister of higher education and Dr. Khattab, Dr. Muhammad who was also
the head of our delegation and China's General Council in Erbil who gave
us this great opportunity.
