English medium instruction in Iraqi Kurdistan - perspectives from lecturers at state universities

The increasing prevalence of EMI in higher education is reflected in the extensive and rapidly growing literature.

This survey of EMI in Higher Education in Kurdistan provides an overview of recent research and draws on responses from academics in thirteen universities to outline their experiences and views. It was carried out to support reform in the teaching and use of English in state universities in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, but it also makes a contribution to the international literature on EMI in higher education. It draws on responses from 416 academics who teach undergraduate courses in English at 13 universities.
