Years of war have badly affected universities in Iraq, leaving them under-resourced and isolated from the global academic community. But Iraq's universities have begun to open their doors again.
The DelPHE-Iraq programme, which ran from January 2010 to March 2012, successfully brought together Iraqi universities with their counterparts in the UK and elsewhere, to strengthen Iraq's higher education system and equip talented Iraqi students with the skills they need to rebuild their country.
Funding has now closed but you can view the full list of DelPHE Iraq projects here and read some of the key achievements of the programme. You can also read a selection of case studies and discover how DelPHE-Iraq has benefitted Iraq's higher education sector and wider Iraqi society.
