1. Does ICPS offer
accommodation? What should I do to apply for accommodation?
Group A applicants are
required to mention in their personal statement that they
will need a place to stay in advance.
Or email us a month prior to their arrival to Iran so that
we try our best to reserve a place for them.
After your registration is
done you will be given an introduction letter for Danesh
Pazhuhan Complex (DPC) of Shahid Beheshti University.
Where there is a high
demand for accommodation, we cannot guarantee accommodation,
specially a single room. Therefore, you can expect to live
in share housing with other students or move to other guest
houses, like Khaneye Sepid Guest
House (for Gentlemen) or
Nikoo Guest House (For Ladies).
2. Is there any option other
For the time being
the only safety-guaranteed option is Danesh Pazhuhan
Complex of Shahid Beheshti University.
3.What are the rules in DPC?
Some of the rules in
DPC are as follows:
The earliest time to leave DPC is
06:00 a.m and the latest time to return back is 10:00 p.m.

out, he/she must inform the dormitory's management in
Students may not have guests of the
opposite sex stay with them in their rooms.

have any problem if you know English.

You should book
your ticket as soon as you receive your Visa
Authorization Number from ICPS.

collect my Student Visa?

8. Can I work when I
am on ICPS program?
