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