Iran's Deputy Minister for Science, Research, and Technology, Mojtaba Seddiqi said in an article in IFP News, that Iranian students studying abroad can complete their studies at Iranian universities if they decide to return. 

In a report by ISNA, he reportedly said, "As the Ministry for Science, Research and Technology has announced repeatedly, the Iranian universities are ready to admit these students in case they decide to return to Iran and take up their studies in the country."

He added, "We don’t have any problem in admitting students studying abroad at master’s level. Administrative efforts are underway for facilitating the transfer of students at other educational levels as well."

The move comes partially in response to the US's move to withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal. 

He concluded, “There were some periods during which the Iranian students studying abroad had to struggle with the consequences of the US sanctions. This time, I think, they once again will go ahead with their education without any serious problems."
