HCED Third Baghdad Educational Fair
Partnering with Education USA
September 28, 29 & 30, 2013


Registration Deadline: September 1, 2013

 

Dear University Representatives:

My name is Zuhair Humadi and I am the General Director for the Higher Committee for Education Development in Iraq. This entity is part of the Iraqi Government and is directly connected with the Iraqi Prime Minister’s Office. One of our tasks is to send Iraqi students to study abroad through a very transparent and rigid selection process.  We have been doing this since 2010 and we have more than one thousand five hundred students studying at US, UK and Australian universities.

HCED is holding it's 3rd education fair in Baghdad on September 28, 29 & 30, 2013 and would like to invite you to participate and meet more than 3000 students who already have scholarships in hand and are seeking admissions to institution of higher education in selected countries. These scholarships have been awarded by the Higher Committee for Education Development , the Ministry of Higher Education. Students from the Human Capacity Development Program in the Iraqi Kurdish region are also invited.

In 2009 and 2012 we held the first and second education fairs in Baghdad and more than 50 US, UK and Australian universities attended. These universities included the University of Iowa, University of Kansas, University of Kentucky, the University of Delaware and others from the US and the University of Birmingham, the University of Leicester and others from the UK. Also, Deakin University and Swinburene University from Australia also attended. This year we expect much more attendance due to the successes of these two fairs

Please consider this as an official invitation to attend and we hope to see you in Baghdad in September. I will list some of the highlights:

Free registration includes a booth, a table and two chairs, also, free lodging and meals. All university representatives will be official guests of the Prime Minister and will stay at the Prime Minter’s Guest House in the International Zone. University representatives will be meeting more than 3000 scholarship students from HCED & the Ministry of Higher Education who are seeking university admissions. Also, the representatives will be meeting high officials from Iraqi universities & the Ministry of Higher Education. We will secure Iraqi visas and will provide free transportation from Baghdad International Airport and back.

Finally, I would like to touch on the security situation which is of a concern to you and to us. We can assure you that all necessary measures have been taken to insure a safe environment to all participants as well as the compound. The fair location will be inside the International Zone which is highly protected and secure. Also, the transportation from the airport and back will be protected by the security detachment of the Prime Minister’s Office. No visits to any of the colleges or universities outside the International Zone will be arranged. I am including two letters of support from the representatives of Deakin University and the American Consortium of Universities who attended our fair last October and are sharing their experiences with all of us.
