Levant Education Iran Mission

Levant Education led the first UK HE mission to Iran in September 2016, following the lifting of international sanctions and installation of ambassadors in London and Tehran. 

The mission – to Tehran, Shiraz and Isfahan – suffered from visa refusals and local tensions over meeting US/UK visitors. However representataives from UCL, Nottingham, Reading, Bradford and Southampton universities were able to travel for meetings with the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Finance, State and Private HE institutions, and with UKTI at the British Embassy.

While the diplomatic and economic relations still have some way to go before any semblance of normality, it was clear from the meetings that there is a great interest in UK education, a keenness for partnerships and joint ventures, and massive demand for education abroad. The full market report is available exclusively through Levant Education, and provides essential background and statistics for anybody interested in the education market in Iran. We will be returning to Iran in April 2017.

Iran Market Entry Tours

With the recent easing of political tensions and economic sanctions, this is the time to plan your market entry / re-entry in Iran.

David Tehran

Elected in 2013, President Hassan Rouhani has shown greater willingness to work with the West and explore mutually beneficial relationships in business, technology, science and academia.

Iran has one of the world’s fastest growth rates in scientific production, dominating the middle east in the fields of natural sciences, humanities, social sciences and the arts. There is great potential for further growth of international research collaboration and co-authorships, academic exchange and student mobility.

Barriers that have held back partnerships, research and mobility – such as money transfers and visas – are disappearing. There is a massive need for modern education and training development for Iran’s 80 million population – young (30% under 18), urban (70% living in cities) and keen to improve business, technology and language skills. There has never been a better time to visit Iran to build relationships, represent your school / university / institution.
