Countries in Distress: Syria and Iraq
With ongoing conflict engulfing both Syria and Iraq, the quality of higher education in both countries continues to suffer, resulting in substantial numbers of students seeking higher education elsewhere. Subsequently, during the 2013/2014 school year the US saw a 37% increase in Syrian students and 39% more students from Iraq. With major roadblocks to rehabilitation, we can expect those numbers to steadily rise. Sulaf Al-Sheikhly will provide an overview of the respective systems of education and outline potential difficulties obtaining documents.

- Examination of education systems in Syria and Iraq
- Student mobility trends
- Key academic documents and potential roadblocks in obtaining them
