Available online educational classes and programs for university students in Iran

Considerable number of students have been suspended or expelled from the universities in Iran following the recent protests. In addition, the university authorities and the Ministry of Education have tightened the previous disciplinary regulations following the protests that can lead to more expulsion and suspension. 

These students are facing serious interruption in their studies. In helping these students to stay current with their studied field and even possibility of obtaining degrees online we have complied a running list of available free and paid online educational courses and programs. We ask everyone's help in completing this list and to distribute it in the media visited by the university students in Iran. We also suggest to the academics in Iran and abroad to offer such courses to the students.

SUTA Appealing to the Universities Abroad to Ease Application Process for Student from Iran

Due to the recent protests in Iran against the government, authorities often restrict internet access throughout the country to prevent the circulation of the news.  As a result, students that are applying to universities abroad may encounter intermittent problem in filling application forms online. The Iranian government has also substantially increased the fee for release of the students’ academic records in recent months. This is amidst an economic crisis in Iran that has led to devaluation of the Iranian currency compared to foreign currencies making the application fee and fees for taking GRE and TOEFL unaffordable for many applicants. Even if applicants afford the exam fees, the internet instability is often preventing them from taking the exams.

To ease the application process for the students facing difficulties in applying to the universities abroad due to the above situation, we are suggesting that the universities:

1.    Waive the application fee

2.    Waive GRE and/or TOEFL exams requirement

3.   Conditionally accept unofficial transcripts

4.   Extend application deadlines

Of course, universities can require applicants to take any competency exam and provide official transcripts once they arrived to the universities.

In these difficult times in Iran, helping with any of the above items would be a big support for prospective graduate students from Iran to have the opportunity to pursue their academic goal.
