Iranian Students Sent To England

By: Mir M.Hosseini

After a significant rise in number of British delegates in Iran, the Iranian government under Fathali Shah felt the need for trusted interpreters in full command of English language who were also aware of the situation in Britain. Therefore, the suggestion made by Abbas Mirza, the crown prince was approved by the prime minister to send two Iranians to study in Britain. In 1814, five more students were sent to Britain for the same reason.
Abbas Mirza proved to be a man of vision and action, and a suitable crown prince to replace his father. However, his sudden death, a year before his father, changed the course of Iranian history completely.
