Tehran’s Sharif University of Technology has offered to grant admission to Iranian students who are barred from education in the U.S. in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump’s visa ban.

After Trump signed a controversial executive order barring refugees and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States many students are also affected by the president’s latest decision, IRNA news agency reported on Tuesday.

In a statement issued by Sharif University after expressing regrets over U.S visa ban as a discriminatory practice they have announced that Iranian students enrolled in scholarship programs in top 20 universities in the United States chosen based on the latest edition of the QS World University Ranking and Times Higher Education can apply to Sharif University.

Students who have the essential requirement can enroll in the program until March 5.
