Students from University of Kurdistan’s Department of
Politics & International Relations have recently enrolled in an internship
program at the Parliament of Kurdistan Region – Iraq. The students were warmly
welcomed by the Parliament Deputy Speaker Hemin Hawrami on Tuesday, 12 November
on the introductory day of the program.
“The purpose of this program is to expose the students to
real life situations, to understand how parliament functions in the Kurdistan
Region, to get acquainted with parliament’s research center, and to develop the
skills necessary for a career in politics” said Ahang Hamid, Internship Program
Supervisor at the University of Kurdistan.
The program is designed to relate the theory students have learned
in the classroom to the practical world of work. Furthermore, it will encourage
participants to understand work responsibility, as well as to develop a
professional work ethic. Most importantly, the activities of this program will
help students identify topics for their final research paper.

facilities, in addition to participating in the sessions of the parliament. The
