To introduce new international students to life at Shiraz University of Medical Sciences (SUMS), SUMS is going to run International Student Orientation Program, which extends from October 08, 2018 to October 11, 2018. The program is designed to support the new international students with substantial information on life in Iran, academic life at SUMS, SUMS’ regulations, etc. During the program, students are picked up from their hall of residence to the venue and returned to the residence by free university vehicle.


Further, New international students should plan to arrive early to attend the Orientation program and to benefit SUMS’ free airport pickup to the student residence hall, which is available only on October 5-7, 2018.
