YSU Rector Professor Aram Simonyan mentioned that in the fiscal period the main objective of the activities of the University was to provide the high level of education. YSU has chosen this way, which corresponds to the present demands of the international society and the Bologna Process, - said Rector.
He states that the definite problem today is the lack of young staff among the tutors. The student-lecturer parity for 2005-2006 academic year was 1/9, 5. In the framework of credit system we can loose a very significant criterion - the direct contact between our lecturers and students. I think that we must keep this, - ensures us Aram Simonyan.
The active collaboration between the University and the employers was considered as an important achievement. For the preparation of future specialists the employers make certain steps today by undertaking joint training projects with Yerevan State University. The report on the activities of YSU for 2005-2006 year was approved by the Council unanimously.
