The University of Tabriz is the second oldest university in Iran after University of Tehran and also the biggest academic institution in north-west of Iran. The university was first established by autonomous Democratic Republic of South Azerbaijan under Jafar Pishevari on June 12, 1946 under the former name of Azerbaycan Universiteti (University of Azerbaijan) with only three Faculties of Medicine, Agriculture and Pedagogy.

The university was called University of Azarabadegan prior to Islamic Revolution of 1979 and University of Tabriz afterwards.
