sine Establishment

Establishment of the university

The establishment of Al Turath University was back in 1988 as the first private sector educational institution in Iraq in order to meet the changing needs of the Iraqi society in terms of embracing students wishing to study within certain disciplines based on the desire and personal ambition of each student and his/her future vision whenever public universities cannot meet such ambitions. Today, Al Turath University has modern classrooms and laboratories equipped with all modern supplies and equipment. The university is interested in aspects of scientific research by investing the energies of educators and students in theoretical and applied scientific researches and studies, as well as training, raising awareness and scientific development within future foundations in line with modern developments through the acquisition of high technical and professional expertise and harnessing them scientifically and academically according to an advanced methodological perspective. The university organizes and adopts a number of different scientific and cultural events to occupy its distinguished position among its peers at the local and international levels through its support and organization of a number of international conferences, seminars and training courses.
