The ninth edition of YSU Olympiad, initiated by YSU Department of Pre-University Education was attended by over 3000 pupils studying in public schools. The best ones progressed into the second stage, which was held at YSU. 86 participants were awarded today I, II and III class diplomas.
The event was attended by the Vice-rector on Academic Affairs Alexander Grigoryan, lecturers, school principals, teachers, students and others.
The scope of cooperation between YSU and schools was expanded today, as another agreement was signed with two schools, representing Sevan and Hrazdan towns. This will strengthen the links between school and university.
“I welcome and congratulate all of you on behalf of YSU Rector. I also welcome the cooperation with partner schools. The University has always attached importance to the activities in this sector, which is included in the strategic plan of its development. This Olympiad is also important because it allows students to test their knowledge before the admission examinations,” – Mr. Grigoryan.
I, II and III class diploma holders will receive discounts for the tuition fees this year 50, 40 and 30% respectively, which was approved by the Academic Council.
