Special Needs

According to the laws related to people with special needs in the Republic of Iraq and the academic policies of the Islamic University, it welcomes students with special needs in all educational programs involving various conditions such as motor, visual, and hearing disabilities, brain and nerve injuries, learning difficulties, speech disorders, mental disorders, and diseases such as autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and chronic diseases. The university is committed to maintaining complete confidentiality regarding people with special needs data. Students will not be affected in any way by the academic support provided by the university, nor will their university degrees be affected.

United Nations: Over a billion people live with some form of disability, which is about 15% of the world’s population, so we can expect 15% of university students to have special needs and require academic support.

The Islamic University is keen to provide the opportunity for students with special needs who wish to study by allocating several study seats in the programs available to them according to the category of disability and their health condition, without prejudice to the controls and mechanisms regulating the admission of students, which include the fulfillment of a set of requirements, namely that the applicant must have a high school diploma or its equivalent for preliminary studies, or the applicant must have a university degree or its equivalent for postgraduate studies. At the time of submission, the applicant must have taken aptitude tests within five years. An applicant can be exempted from this condition if he has a letter from the National Center for Measurement, or if he is blind. The student must fill out the admission application data through the electronic admission portal website within the period specified for the unified electronic admission period. Disabilities and health conditions should not prevent a student from practising and applying the basic skills necessary for him to finish the academic programme he has been accepted into. A number of students with disabilities are also considered for admission to the Islamic University after applicants are sorted and compared through unified admissions. According to the records and reports demonstrating the student’s health status, to be submitted to the Permanent Admission Committee for consideration and evaluation of each student’s case individually. If they meet the requirements for admission to the academic programs and specializations available to them, this group of students may be accepted. Male and female students from this prestigious category are accepted through the Higher Education Program for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students through particular submission mechanisms by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. Through the program, their applications are sorted, they are interviewed, and their level of disability is established. Following that, hearing-impaired students who exhibit a high level of independence are granted entry to all subjects within the university’s humanities faculties.
