India, Iran or Turkey: Iraqi Students look Abroad for Post-Grad Studies
There are no easy options for Iraqi graduates who want to continue their education with post-graduate studies.
If they have good grades, they may try to obtain one of the few free spots at a public university in the country. If their grades are not good enough to take that path, they could try to find a private university in Iraq to attend or opt to study abroad, which could be cheaper.
Given this situation, a growing number of post-graduate students are choosing to leave Iraq, bound for neighboring countries or India, where numerous post-graduate programs are taught in English.
