The English UK mission to Iran

A three day market scoping mission to meet with key stakeholders in Tehran, from Thursday 13 – Tuesday 18 October 2016, to ensure that the UK's ELT sector is well-positioned to take advantage of the exceptional opportunities in the Iranian market.


Please note: this event has been postponed due to the current situation in Iran.
Dates will be announced in due course, for more information please contact Jodie.


This mission will give a delegation of ten English UK members the opportunity to meet with key stakeholders including Iranian Government ministries and departments, study abroad agencies and educational consultants, universities, corporations, training institutions and private language schools.

Why attend?

A combination of demographic, economic and political factors mean it is a key time for re-engagement with Iran:

  • international sanctions are lifting following the 2015 nuclear non-proliferation deal
  • a growing and youthful population
  • rapid expansion in university enrolments are evidence of a high demand for education
  • a rebounding economy
  • a huge appetite for an overseas education, although challenges and obstacles remain
  • major competitor destinations are actively engaging with Iran – it is the right time to ensure that the UK's ELT sector is well-positioned to take advantage of the exceptional opportunities in the Iranian market.
