Sunday, April 3, 2016 - 23:45

The general director of IAU international affairs gave details on the plans and international academic activities of his department.

According to ANA (Azad News Agency), Dr. Hossein Ebrahimi stated that IAU has established international offices both inside and outside the country. International branches that are inside the country are mostly running in free zones. “The possibility of admitting students from other countries is more than other parts due to the closeness of these regions to border areas. Establishing these branches also prevent the outflow of students abroad which is a necessity as every year, a substantial number of people leave the country for continuing their education,” he added.

He also said that IAU’s effort is to encourage students to stay in the country especially at higher education levels by developing supplementary education and admitting foreign students.

“Since most of the IAU’s international branches have been established in free zones, IAU signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Supreme Council of Iran’s Free Trade and Industrial and special Economic Zones,” he said. The Supreme Council of Iran’s Free Trade and Industrial and special Economic Zones will help develop the IAU in free zones. In return, IAU shall fulfill the scientific and educational needs of these areas.

“IAU has 4 active international branches in the United Arabic Emirates, Afghanistan, Lebanon, and Oxford. These branches usually admit non-Iranian students and each branch is active in a special area. As an example, the Afghanistan branch focuses on higher education; or the Emirates branch focuses not only on developing higher education but also on scientific activities and holding seminars and conferences.”

“The Oxford branch more focuses on manpower training and its English Language College. This branch also acts as a hub for mutual research projects and scientific cooperation between Iranian universities and other countries. The Lebanon branch, with its 800 students, is most active in humanities.” he added.

He finally stated that IAU branches will be established in other countries such as Russia, Oman, Iraq, and the Kurdistan Region.
