Dean’s Word

Sulaimani University is the educational, scientific and academic institution that has been the venue of education and innovation of thought and scientific achievements in all fields. Since its establishment until now and even in the future, it has always sought to serve as a hub for all the scientific fields. College of Basic Education, similar to other colleges, has been considered to be one of the most important colleges in terms of scientific achievement and fulfilling students’ needs and providing skilled and knowledgeable graduates in all fields of education. It also played a significant role in overcoming major changes in science, technology, scientific research and innovation.

The College of Basic Education has two main objectives to achieve: The first one is to train teachers with modern education tools, so that they can play their leading role in their professional careers. The second objective is to prepare teachers for basic schools (1-9 grades) to be qualified to perform their duties by creating a solid scientific foundation and good expertise in their field of specialization by allowing them to practice before graduation, which will help them to implement that specialization. It is always grateful to work as a dean to this college and I highly appreciate the role of former deans and tireless academic and administrative staff who served in the best of their abilities. I am always happy with the success and progress of our college. May you remain proud and successful in serving the Mother University and the College of Basic Education.

History

In 2003–2004, the College of Teachers was established to meet the needs of the Ministry of Education—Kurdistan Regional Government for well qualified and experienced teachers in the basic education schools and to supply the educational institutions of the Kurdistan Region with human resources. Later in 2005–2006, to correspond with its counterparts in other universities in Kurdistan and to prepare competent teachers for the stage 1-9. The name of the College of Teachers was changed to the College of Basic Education. In 2011–2012, within the modifications that occurred to the strategies of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the name was altered to (The School of Basic Education), which was again reversed to its former title (College of Basic Education) in 2015–2016.

At the outset, studying in the college was not divided according to specialties, but general majors were studied, including scientific and humanitarian subjects. Later, the college was divided into several departments, such as the Department of English Language, Mathematics and Computer Skills, Social Sciences, and Physical Education. Back in 2011–2012, Mathematics and Computer skills were separated to form independent departments, and Kindergarten and Arts departments were founded. Then, in 2012–2013, Kurdish Department, and later, in 2016–2017 Department of Special Education were established to accept applicants.

In 2012–2013, according to the demands of the Ministry of Education, evening classes started in the departments of Social Sciences and Computer Skills to enroll teachers of the ministry to enhance their abilities and skills. Later, evening classes were given in the other departments of the College of Basic Education: the English department 2013–2014, Kindergarten 2014–2015, Arts and Special Education 2016–2017 and the Kurdish Department 2017–2018.

In the beginning, there were two semesters per academic year, but since 2008–2009, the college has applied an annual system, which will be decimated in 2023–2024, and after that, all the stages in all the departments will come under the Bologna Process, which has already been used in the Computer Skill and Mathematics departments since 2019–2020. In fact, all the departments of the College of Basic Education have implemented the Bologna Process since 2020–2021, but only the final stages in a few departments still apply the annual system, which will end in 2023–2024.
The College of Basic Education provides morning and evening classes, and students are enrolled in all the departments through two systems: the Zankoline and Direct systems. Students are admitted to all the departments of the college through the Zankoline system, except for the Department of Art, which enrolls students directly.
