A word from the President


The conversion of the Higher Institute of Public Health to the School of Medicine in 1949 was a major step forward in establishing the first university in the North East of the country, i.e. Mashhad University which later was called “The Ferdowsi University of Mashhad".

Following the developments in various aspects in the recent years, the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad has trained a large number of highly qualified experts, and has played a key role in the improvement of scientific and research activities in the country.

At the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, we attract many of the nation's best students every year, because our expectations are higher and our commitment is stronger. We equip our people with the substantial resources they expect from an internationally recognized institution. Our graduates join a legacy of thinkers, leaders, and global citizens that is focused on improving lives within the province and beyond.

The era after the revolution in Iran has been a time of development and expansion of many schools at the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. FUM is now aiming at placing itself at an outstanding position by paving the way for getting more overseas students together and establishing a friendly atmosphere amongst the younger generations. I can definitely assure you that the environment of FUM, a green university, is a pleasurable one for study and research. I would urge prospective students to apply here and open up the doors to a new world to themselves.
