Based on a motion passed in a Sunday session of the Iranian parliament, the country’s universities will be able to establish branches in other countries and also in Iranian free trade and industrial zones.

The motion, however, states that the branches can be opened only if the ministry of science or ministry of medical education deem it necessary.

Such branches are not state-funded, and should provide their budget by receiving tuition, according to a report by Shabestan, as translated by IFP.
