About the webinar:

Iran’s education system has undergone tremendous growth in recent years. While most of this growth has occurred at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and Iran is home to two of the largest universities in the world, access to higher education is limited. This lack of access is a driver of outbound mobility among Iranian students who seek further education abroad.

Gain insights into:

  • The structure of Iran’s education system and current trends
  • Iran’s benchmark credentials at the secondary and tertiary levels and how to evaluate them
  • Key institutions, academic documentation, and grading scales
