LFU was licensed in September 2007 by the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG decree 2342). Classes are offered at the Bachelor and Master’s levels. The university is backed by foreign institutions, including the French state universities of Amiens (University of Picardie Jules Verne) and Nimes. It benefits from foreign programs and foreign teachers exchanges. LFU offers modern educational facilities located on its new 50,000 sqm Erbil campus.


The main objective of LFU programs is to prepare students for professional life and for further studies. The use of active teaching methods (cases & simulations) aims to develop knowledge, know-how and decision-making capabilities with a focus on the job market needs.

They also prepare for a continuation of studies in LFU or in foreign partner universities at the Master’s level.
