Universities & Research Institutions

Iran has a large network of Public, Private, and State affiliated universities offering degrees in higher education, where there are two main ministries responsible for directing the science, research and technology. The first and the largest one of the two, is the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology (MSRT), which is in charge of all the courses of Basic Sciences, Human Sciences, Engineering, Art, Agriculture, and in charge of universities, research centers and all Science and Technology Parks.

The second is the Ministry of Health and Medical Education (MOHME), which oversees the integration of the delivery of health services and medical education, all medical universities and also the Clinical courses.

Iran’s universities, higher education institutes and research organizations are spread across the country, even in the bordering cities, and thus, there is fair distributions of students in larger cities and at farther away from capital. the MSRT continuously assures to provide a safe, welcoming and productive environment, irrespective of age, disability, gender, race, religion or belief, through promoting an inclusive culture with particular focus on equality of opportunities in an environment of mutual respect and dignity, to support and encourage all under-presented groups

A list of all the universities accredited by the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology is given below, in:
