  1. Is only a related bachelor’s degree accepted? A related bachelor’s degree is desired but not mandatory. Your entire set of documents and conditions will be reviewed.
  2. Is a language certificate necessary? The objective is to be able to read untranslated resources. Therefore, an intermediate reading level in English is essential for studying English resources. If you don’t have a TOEFL or IELTS certificate, you can take an intermediate English reading test at a language institute near your residence. Certificates from language institutions are accepted. Those who have a degree in translation or English literature or have studied at English-language universities do not need to provide a language certificate.
  3. Should we first take the language test and then apply for registration? No, if you are currently preparing to take the reading test, you can indicate on the related section on the website that you are in the process of taking the English language reading test and specify the expected date of receiving it.
  4. If we haven’t received our bachelor’s degree yet, can we apply for registration? Yes. If you’re in the final year of your bachelor’s degree and haven’t received your diploma yet, please indicate the expected date of receipt and attach the detailed scores you have earned up to the completion of the questionnaire.
  5. How much is the tuition fee at Iran Academia? Education at Iran Academia is free. Iran Academia was established based on its belief in the necessity of academic freedoms, the right to free education, and also free study. Previously, Iran Academia recommended an annual symbolic administrative fee of 110 euros as a minimal amount and a mechanism to create a sense of seriousness and commitment in the student concerning everything available to them. Still, it no longer requests it. Instead, it only suggests that those who can, aren’t facing transfer restrictions, and they or their families live abroad, support the ongoing activities of Iran Academia on “this page” with this amount or any other voluntary amount.
  6. What level is Iran Academia’s certificate? The certificate from Iran Academia is within the European Qualifications Framework – Level 7 at a master’s degree equivalent level. The final course certificate is also issued based on this standard. For a detailed explanation, refer to the resources below:
