This is a study programme to Iran, led by a USP/NUS professor.

It aims to acquaint students with various aspects of Iranian civilisation with particular emphasis on the relationship between Iran and the West in the areas of philosophy, literature, and the social sciences. Students have the opportunity to interact with Iranian faculty and students at the University of Tehran.


  • Civilisation of Iran was one of the most unique experiences I've had in my university life. What I enjoyed most was the interaction we had with the students from the University of Tehran, and I learnt a lot from our conversations.

  • The most impactful part of the trip was being able to engage and interact with our counterparts from the University of Tehran. The engaging discussions on Multiculturalism in both Iran and Singapore made for a rewarding experience.
