Vietnam’s Minister of Science, Research, and Technology visited the president of Islamic Azad University to discuss the mutual development of academic cooperation.

According to Iran Student Correspondents Association (ISCA), Dr. Hamid Mirzadeh stated that IAU is focused on developing its international affairs and establishing offices in other countries for expanding IAU’s international collaboration including exchanging faculty, students, and sharing research.

Vietnam’s Minister of Science, Research, and Technology first congratulated IAU on the high volume of its achievements since 1982 and mentioned its 400 branches which have made it the largest comprehensive system of universities, colleges, and community colleges in the world, “this is the first time that I have visited Iran and I was truly surprised by the progress of the country. Visiting IAU was even more of a wonder.”

He added that the educational cooperation between two countries is limited right now and should be developed based on the existing potentials, “ Iran is the first priority for boosting educational cooperation for us in the Middle East. Academic and cultural cooperation can pave the way for more cooperation in other fields as well.”

Both parties also signed a academic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for exchanging faculty members, students, and scientific experiences and planning mutual academic programs.
