Avicenna International College – AIC – (Hungarian: Avicenna Nemzetközi Kollégium) was founded in 1995 by Dr. Shahrokh MirzaHosseini and has been in operation as a preparatory college for higher education since 2000.

The college offers foundation programs in medicine, business, technical studies and English, as well as preparatory programs for Masters and PhD studies.

History[edit]

AIC has been present since 1995, when its predecessor was founded, and it was in 2000 when the college launched its first academic year. Since then more than 3000 students have successfully completed one of the institution’s preparatory programs and got into one of Europe’s leading universities.[1]

In 2003 AIC established its International Advisory Board. The Advisory Board supervises and supports the educational activities and programs of the college. It observes and evaluates the educational plans and strategies, and advises the college officers on development of the quality management system.

Since every year more and more students arrive from abroad, in 2004 AIC opened the Avicenna Residential Complex which provides a place to stay for those who arrive in Budapest from faraway countries.[2]

During 2006 and 2007 the institution got its accreditation in Hungary and Iran, and since 2007 the Swedish governmental student agency recognizes AIC as well.

In 2006 AIC started a scholarship program to give aid to those students who wish to continue their studies but have financial problems.[3]

International Advisory Board[edit]

Avicenna’s advisory board was founded in 2003, and since then it helped the institution’s work immensely.
