Czech Academic City (CZAC) is a new project that has recently opened in Kurdistan, Iraq. At present, the Erbil campus focuses on technical subjects such as Petroleum Engineering, Civil Engineering, Management and Business, Finance, Marketing, and Computer Science. It specialises in preparing students for a high European level of academia to enable them to complete their undergraduate and postgraduate study in the Czech Republic. VSB currently runs both foundation courses and stand-alone ESL courses.


Kurdistan is a vibrant, safe and interesting place to work and live. Often coined as ‘the other Iraq’, Kurdistan is a relatively liberal and progressive region of the Middle East. Steeped in great history and culture, this mountainous region is harmoniously home to Muslims, Christians, and Atheists, alike. With Western calibre restaurants, bars, and supermarkets, as well as Eastern Bazaars and markets, Erbil is a real melting pot of cultures and a fascinating place to live.
