Degree Programmes in Languages other than Persian

According to the decisions made by the Iranian Academy of Language and Literature and the related authorities on language policies and the requirement to use Perian Language in Iranian university classes, Allameh Tabataba'i University (ATU) requires that foreign incoming students are proficient in Perian Language.
