The university holds seminars, international conferences, and workshops that draw delegations and renowned professors.

The first step that led to the founding of the University of Tehran can be traced back to the efforts of education minister, Isa Sedigh. He acted on the suggestion of Minister of Court Abdolhossein Teymourtash regarding the need to establish a university in Tehran.

In 1933, the Ministry of Education received funds to acquire a suitable property where to establish the university. The area of Jalaliyeh garden was chosen and in 1934, UT was officially opened. In 1937, the university started accepting female students.

UT has produced some of the country’s more important figures in politics, arts, music, literature, and medicine. Among its notable alumni include former Prime Minister of Iran, Manuchehr Eqbal; computer scientist and professor emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, Lotfi Aliasker Zadeh; and Iranian writer, Shahrnush Parsipur.
