6,000 Iraqi students studying in universities of Iran

TEHRAN, Aug. 27 (MNA) – Deputy of Iraqi cultural attaché said on Tuesday that there are 6,000 Iraqi university students studying in Iran.

“Most of Iraqi students are studying medical sciences and engineering in Iran,” Mohammad Bagher Hakim said.

“Presently, 50 percent to 60 percent of Iraqi students are studying medical sciences in seven provinces across Iran, while those studying engineering are studying mostly in Tehran and Mashhad,” he added.

As he said, Iraq intends to increase the number of its university students in Iran.

In Late July, Iran’s Minister of Science, Research and Technology Mansour Gholami said that 50 thousand foreign students are studying at various universities in Iran.

Gholami said that one of the major programs of the Ministry of Science is to develop international interactions between professors and students in recent years, adding that a large number of Iran’s graduate students and academic professors go to universities in other countries to study which can have serious effects on cultural exchanges and political interactions.

In recent years, a significant number of collaborative research projects have been implemented with researchers from other countries’ universities, he noted.

The priority of these joint projects is on new sciences and technologies, such as biotechnology in the agricultural sector and energy technologies, science minister mentioned.

Referring to the acceptance of foreign students, he said that the number of foreign students in the fields of empirical sciences, basic sciences, agriculture, engineering and medicine is gradually increasing.
