Tuition Fees and Expenses for Academic Year 2022-2023

 

 

Although Shiraz is one of the largest cities in Iran, cost of living here is almost affordable. This makes Shiraz a perfect destination for students. However, as an international student, you need to verify that you have the funds for your tuition and living costs during your stay as a student. You might either introduce a sponsor who will pay for your expenses or you will afford the costs yourself.

The following is the list of expenses for students admitted to Shiraz University of Medical Sciences (SUMS). Note that all the following are valid only for the academic year 2022-2023. Please note that ALL expenses including the tuition fee, are to pay in its entirety at the beginning of each academic year.
