Study In Iran For Foreigners

Recommended Posts

UAE had the same issue but they came up with a freehold idea. Basically, there are certain 'freehold' areas which foreigners can own property. It has been very successful concept. Seems like a practical compromise. Keep certain areas for citizens and some areas for foreigners.

Iran should compromise and let outsiders pour money into the country.

Iran already did that.

If a foreigner takes Iranian citizenship, he can buy lands.

As if the citizenship is on offer.

A Pakistani guy I know has been married to an Irooni and been living in Iran for 30 years. Still not eligible and won't ever be.

That has nothing to do with residential ownership.

Errrr, obviously. We are speaking of non-citizens.

Then, what does 100% ownership stand for?

And after doing some googling, i found out that foreigners actually are possible to acquire property in Iran but it's not 100%

In Faresi:

ياداوري اين مسائل منو ناراحت ميكنه :( , چه برسه كه بخواهم در در مورد شون بنويسم ، در ضمن اين مسائل اصلا ارزش گفتن ندارند

I don't want to go into details 'cause even the reflection about what happened in my first study year does make me sad!

I just wish to erase those dark times in my life, and never think of them again.

Yupp! As I told you before, it's very different between cities!

People living in Qum and Mashad are very nice and supportive not like those maniac Tehranis.

Anyway, I have no idea about technical sciences but if anyone is interested in medical studies you can send an email to the international office department:

Email:: shabani@ut.ac.ir

Tel number:: 00989195551056

In my case I wanted to study in Qum, but when I sent my application for student loan to CSN ( Swedish financial aid) they didn't approve it.

They told me that just two Iranian universities are accepted in Europe ---- Tehran University of medical Sciences and Shahid Beheshti University (SBU). If I choose other universities they won't grant me a student loan.

The cost of tuition for one medical year is 13 million toman.

W Salam

really sad to hear that from u, cause iranian people are famous for being hospitabale to strangers (especially girls... :dry: just kidding), but believe me it's not any comparable to other countries. i mean the people are not that racist as they are in london, or in US or even in Sweden.

i had bad experiences living abroad both a muslim and as an iranian.

they call us terrorist on no grounds and humiliate us for supporting hizbullah or hamas or whatever. they say u dont have the right to be here.

firstly, harrassment is problem that exist every where and i think in some european capitals it is worse than here. secondly this problem is not limited to foreign girls, some iranian girls have been the victim of harrassment, molesting or abusing.

consider this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_statistics

I think this thread needs to get back on topic. Just answer the operator's question.

I feel like some people in here have an agenda and want to prevent people from studying in Iran.

If expense is an issue that's understandable, but if the issue is in regards to studying abroad in Tehran or anywhere in Iran is about racism "lol" to that.

mac isaac: That part I have to disagree with. It can be a real shock for black people from the West and Africa to come and live in Iran and to deal with the in your face, overt racism of the place when it comes to how Iranians often treat blacks. From getting taunted in the street, strangers calling you out as "siyah poost", to even violence, it's all there to a level which makes the US look like a racially enlightened paradise in comparison. And I'm talking about Qum here, the one place you'd hope that should be above such attitudes. It's not so shocking though when you realize that as late as the 1980s, Iranian TV would still broadcast blackface comedy (until it was finally banned, though of course you still have the blackface hajji firuz in the meanwhile).

This is quite the contrary actually. From my experiences Iranians are probably the most black-friendly, they seem to kind of like black people. They have streets named after famous Africans in Iran. Also, culturally there isn't a bad stigma or stereotype against black people at all. The term "siyah poost" is not deragatory either, if you know Farsi you would know that. Not just by language but culturally it has no negative meaning. Actually in the middle east, Iran's probably the least racist against blacks.

However, Iran is a very diverse place too...they do have an ignorant prejudice/racist behaviour that just seems to be like some kind of ignorance they're used to. If you're Iranian you could relate to it, but basically people could be prejudice to somebody from the next town. But it's never taken seriously, it's just some weird accepted norm. To a westerner or somebody from outside of Iran, it would be perceived as racist or outrageous, but to Iranians they wouldn't even give it a second thought. This is not to say that some black people may have legitmate racist reactions to them in Iran. But i'm just saying, from my experiences, in general Iranians (vast majority - there's racist ppl and bad apples everywhere of course) are not racist towards black people at all.

And by the way Hajji firuz being black has nothing to do with racism. In fact, he's the character that brings people happiness and cheers everyone up, that everyone likes. So that would be counter-arguing your case there.

Simply wrong.

But you are correct in saying they are not as racist as Arabs are towards African people.

Iranians racist against black people LOL!

Which is why I've seen at least more than 20 intermarriages/relationships involving a person of some kind of African extraction and an Iranian, be it man or woman.

Salamu Alaikom,

From what I'm gathering on this thread, Iran is just like everywhere else. You have your ignorant ones, and you have your open minded and educated ones. Regardless of the group/individuals you run across they don't represent the whole.

Contrary to the negative outlook I, Inshallah, intend to attend Hawza in the near future and pray that Allah (SWT) guides me with as little trouble as possible. If my time there is trying, may Allah (SWT) bless me with patience.

Ref to Shadow of Light, post #25, comment on a football match.

 

When in a Mid-West college, we had many students from Lebanon. They played a football/soccer match. One of them score a goal. They were close together going for the ball.

 

For one week +, everywhere they went, they argued over the goal. Whose fault, not according to  the "rules", yadda yadda....

 

The whole campus was talking about this continuing argument.

If you wish to go to any Iranian university, you should start from here .... 

http://www.ikiu.ac.ir/en/

During three months you will learn Farsi and then you will chose your university. People of Iran are nice and the fees are low. You can get scholarship too.   

But if you want to apply for Hawzah you need to go to Almustafa university directly. It's free of fees.
