Reza Shah Kabir University

Near the birth place of Iranís late leader, Reza Shah the Great, Reza Shah Kabir University will be Iranís first school of graduate studies. RSK is designed to meet the demand of the nationís university system for qualified faculty, to offer research facilities, and to provide an international orientation. The eventual 500 yearly graduate students will reduce Iranís dependence on foreign universities for the training of university faculty and will increase the research capability of the nation. The universityís main thrust will revolve around the sciences, social sciences and humanities, and research, with the first of the three development phases to begin in 1980.
