About the Persian Gulf University …

Persian Gulf University (PGU) was founded in 1993  and is located on the beautiful coast of the Persian Gulf in south Iran and as the only state university in the province of Bushehr, Persian Gulf University’s vision is to achieve an outstanding reputation in science and technology, to be innovative, entrepreneurial, and active in the international academic community, in the lead in energy and marine studies and an expert authority in the field of Persian Gulf studies. More than 8000 students are studying in 26 undergraduate, 48 master, and 12 PhD degrees. PGU has 250 academic staff working in 7 faculties, and 4 research centers. We believe that studying at Persian Gulf University can provide students with a uniquely rich experience for different reasons. First and foremost, the proven record of the quality of teaching and research is a distinguishing advantage of our university. Secondly, maintaining strong ties with the various high profile industries all over Bushehr province as the Energy Capital of Iran, such as those involved in the oil and gas industry, agricultural products (like dates and tomatoes), cultivation and processing of aquatic organisms, specially prawns, international commercial transactions and marine industry is another important reason for studying here. The coast of the Persian Gulf as a rich ecosystem with great bio-diversity provides yet another brilliant aspect to student life at our University. The old part of the city of Bushehr with its unique traditional architecture and most beautiful residential buildings certainly adds a precious cultural aspect to the experience of studying and living at Persian Gulf University in Bushehr. Last but not least, the University provides the faculty and students a very friendly atmosphere to study and practice in, an atmosphere which is always appreciated by our students and alumni.
