Dean’s Word

College of Languages at the University of Sulaimani stands out as one of the institution's distinguished and long-standing academic faculties. Here, language studies encompass not only the scientific aspects of language but also impart valuable abilities, skills, and experiences to students.

Furthermore, the study of foreign languages plays a vital role in educating students, opening doors to employment opportunities in fields such as translation, international relations, teaching, public policy, and commerce. Graduates can pursue careers in language review, public speaking, and presentation, establishing themselves as active and reputable contributors to the development of the Kurdish community.
