The University of Kurdistan Hewlêr (UKH) is an educational institution in Erbil (Kurdish: Hewlêr, هەولێر) in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. UKH was the fifth public university to be opened in the Kurdistan Region. It was established in 2006.[1]

On 29 May 2011, by invitation of Baban, UKH granted an Honorary Doctorate in Politics and International Relations to John Major, the former British Prime Minister (1991–1997) who had been very helpful to the Kurds during his term in office. In his speech, he described students of UKH as a "rare asset".[2][3]
