Living in Iraq

Iraq is an unconventional place to live and teach, with some parts being unsafe to travel to due to ongoing conflict. Our partner schools in Iraq are based in the Kurdistan region, which is relatively safe, although caution is still recommended. Erbil is a modern city with plenty of shopping centres and places to eat. Expats who are new to a Muslim country may experience some degree of culture shock and might have to adjust their lifestyle.
