Core Value



College of Education was opened in 2004 in Qaladze as a college of Koya University.

In 2010, when the University of Raparin was established in the area, the college became a part of the new established university and its name was changed from College of Languages to College of Education. The college continued to expand, and in 2015 the department of Education and Psychology was opened. Currently, the college comprises 4 departments, in which both tertiary education and postgraduate studies are provided. Since 2014, the college has started to offer post-graduate education in Kurdish department, and so far, six students have achieved Master’s degree in Kurdish Language and Literature. In 2016, department of Education and Psychology was added to the college. Additionally, in the same year, evening classes in Kurdish and Arabic departments were opened for the purpose of extending the college.

Dean's Word

Welcome to the College of Education, where the educators work to make society better! The advancements in the modern age have urged educators to reexamine the education systems in terms of both quality and contextual needs. In this sense, the College of Education strives to provide our students with quality and up-to-date education to become not only successful educators and teachers, but also entrepreneurs, problem-solvers, and cooperative and active individuals in society who possess a life-long learning mindset. With this philosophy in mind, our faculty, staff, and students work to build on the college’s strengths and continue the strong bind that connects the college to the community. Moreover, we are also committed to serving as a bridge to improve this strong and diverse environment for educators and students who will teach and lead in ways that promote education and equity at both local and international levels.
