Language Requirements

 | Post date: 2021/5/26 | 
Classes during the first 2 years of the program are offered in English, but the remainder of health care professional programs (from the third year onwards) will be held in Persian.
The language of instruction at IUMS for international students is English, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. However, since some heath care majors and programs require students to interact with patients who speak Persian, learning Persian could be mandatory for students in those programs. These students are often health care professional students (pursuing MD, PharmD, DDS or Nursing degrees). However, it is ultimately the Admissions Office which will determine which students require Persian or remedial English courses, and whether they are recommended or mandatory for that student.
The 
Language Academy at IUMS International College is in charge of teaching Persian to IUMS international students. The University might decide to present English courses to IUMS students, staff and faculty members, or outsource it depending on demand each semester, while maintaining overall supervision on the content and quality of courses offered.
