Bologna process, Duhok Polytechnic University, and Higher Education.


Over the last two decades, Bologna process had spread from Europe to countries on other continents, including Africa, South America, and Asia. The process has recently attracted the attention of the Kurdistan Regional Government; and has already been applied at a few universities in Kurdistan to replace the previous Iraqi education system, which is based on an annual calendar and is out of date
to more formative system including (homework, classwork, assignment, projects, and reports). The new vision of the world is built on this foundation. Recently, and by applying the worldwide standards, Duhok Polytechnic University (DPU) has been able to strengthen the level of professionalism shown in higher education. The researcher wanted to see if the process had a chance of succeeding and what was needed to make it happen. Preparations were necessitated by assessing the perceptions of academicians in Duhok
Polytechnic University toward the Bologna process. The study made use of a questionnaire with academicians who were subjected to implement the Bologna process. Due to a variety of factors, like the university's decent infrastructure and a large number of academicians both of which are valuable helps. The research findings implied that the process might be implemented. To summarize, and according to university’s academics, various initiatives had made toward the adoption of the Bologna process, but further preparations and efforts are necessary to be taken in consideration.
