Registration in Tehran:

Your first arrival should be in Tehran, the capital. TUMS representative receives you at the international airport upon your request.

 

The registration is at TUMS campus in Tehran.

 

As you are staying here in Tehran for registration and before flying to Kish Island, you can stay at TUMS dormitory. A temporary dormitory for you in Tehran is provided. During that, we will assist you to apply for your one-year residency permit. Then you will fly to Kish Island. TUMS will provide you with this first flight from Tehran to Kish Island free of charge.

 

The Grouping test and English & Persian language placement tests, will be at TUMS campus in Kish Island.

Tests in Kish Island:

After registration and before the beginning of the program, students are required to attend a grouping exam. The result of this exam will be applied for grouping the students and deciding on the number of credits they are allowed to select for each semester. Also, some students might be required to pass some prerequisite courses in one or more subjects based on the result of this exam. The questions of this exam will be from 4 subjects of your Secondary and Higher Secondary School examinations (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics).

 

Class Place:

As you are informed earlier, the first phase (Basic Science Phase) of your M.D. classes will be held in beautiful Kish Island, located at the south of Iran. TUMS professors will fly from Tehran to Kish Island every week. You can find more information about Kish Island, the dormitory, and the classes on our website.

TUMS will provide you with the first flight ticket from Tehran to Kish Island at the specified time period free of charge. At Kish Island, free transportation from the airport to the dormitory is provided as well.

After successfully finishing the Basic Science Phase, for your clinical phase, you will go back to Tehran for the rest of your studies.

 

Language of Instruction:

The language of instruction in the first phase (Basic Science Phase) of your M.D. classes, which lasts around 2.5 – 3 years, is English and after successful completion of these years, the rest of the M.D. program (Clinical Phase) will be in the Persian language. During the first phase, students are required and have enough time to improve their knowledge of Persian language which is a must for a doctor to interact with domestic patients. TUMS will do the arrangements of Persian language learning classes when you register at TUMS.

If your language proficiency is not high enough to attend M.D. classes, you will be required to pass at least one semester of English language classes before your program. This decision will be made based on TUMS International College evaluation and the placement test, and based on the decision of TUMS Office of International Admissions for international students.
