On Monday, the 10th of October 2022, Erbil Polytechnic University Rector Prof. Dr. Edrees Muhamad Tahir Harki received the Knowledge University Rector Asst. Prof. Dr. Kayhan Zrar Ghafur and his delegation.

In a meeting, both parties discussed building a scientific relationship, conducting a mutual activity, and encouraging the EPU technical institutes alumni to complete their higher education studies at Knowledge University.

During their meeting, both university Rectors signed a memorandum of understanding agreement that included several points:

First: the Knowledge University and the Erbil Polytechnic University will collaborate in joint activities like Seminars, workshops, symposiums, and scientific conferences.

Second: both sides will work on the education programs and Bologna process implementation in the scientific departments.

Third: if the EPU alumni wish to study at the Knowledge University colleges, the university will offer a 15% discount for them. If the graduator is top three in their department, the university will give a 25% discount to them in the four years of their studying.

Fourth: despite the discount mentioned above, the EPU alumni can benefit from the other discounts of the Kurdistan Regional Government, the Knowledge University, or any related sides.

Fifth: the students once benefit from the discount for each grade, which means if a student fails in the academic year of the study cannot have any second chance to benefit from another discount.

Sixth: to benefit from the discount, the Erbil Polytechnic University graduator should offer the EPU support letter to the Knowledge University when they apply for the application form.

Seventh: this MOU will be effective for two study years, 2022-2023 and 2023-2024. If both parties want to renew the MOU for an extra year, they should resign a new agreement.
