On Thursday, December 6, 2018, the presidency of the University of Zakho, Dohuk University, and Dohuk Polytechnic University held a meeting of important issue on (Results and the Process of the National Rankings of Kurdistan Universities) in which the Ministry announced the current national rankings of universities for the academic year (2018-2019). The meeting was held at the presidential building of Dohuk University, and they issued a mutual statement as below; In the name of the higher council of the three universities, the University of Zakho, Dohuk University, and Dohuk Polytechnic University, we inform the institutes of Kurdistan government and general public that, the results of the process of national rankings of Kurdistan universities which are announced by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, are not done fairly, and there are many points of importance which are not counted, therefore, the current process of national rankings is not accurate. It is worth mentioning that we have asked for the formation of a committee to investigate the accuracy of the results, but unfortunately, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research has not responded yet. Therefore, we inform you that the results do not reflect the scientific and academic level of Kurdistan universities, and are only in the favor of private universities. Therefore, we request the government of the Kurdistan region to investigate in the process of rankings, to announce the accurate scientific level of universities to the public. More importantly, many universities have sometimes stopped working on the official days of working in contrast with our universities. Therefore, if the Ministry does not investigate in the process of national rankings of universities, we will not participate in the process next year.
