Education

An undergraduate or a first-level university student is a student working toward an Associate, B.Sc., M.D., D.D.S., or Pharm.D. degree. We consider you an undergraduate applicant if you have graduated from high school and are applying to one of the above-mentioned degrees.

Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.), and Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) applicants should note that the language of instruction and patient interaction will be Persian/Farsi, although IUMS professors speak English, power points and books are in English, and exams might be given in English.
