Did you do a search? (see button above - use "search for all terms") There has been discussion of this institution.

From what I hear, things haven't improved.

Aman!

There was me hoping it would offer a viable alternative to Saudi for my first EAP post, and it turns out to be infinitely more problematic!

Where can I apply? I have a Dip with distinction, a BA, 10 years experience as a teacher, 3 years as a teacher trainer under my belt and 6 years as an UCLES examiner.

I'm beginning to despair.

Another nail in the coffin at what was supposed to be Barzani's gift to Kurdistan.

Hi,

Thanks for all of this.
One question: there's been nothing horrific posted about the 2011-2012 academic year. Is there any chance that the involvement of the University of Leicester has helped calm the ''situation'' down?

Thanks,

M
