Director of the Center on Students Affairs Vahagn Varagyan and Head of YSU Educational and Methodological Department Hrant Zhamharyan were present at the meeting organized by YSU Center on Students Affairs.
During the meeting, Serob Sujyan presented the requirements and opportunities of one month courses for officers available at the RA MoD V. Sargsyan Military Institute Academy and Marshal Khanperiants Aviation Institute. The initiative is for the summer conscription of 2018.
In particular, the speaker noted that each student has the opportunity to sign a contract with the RA Ministry of Defense after graduating from the university, within the framework of which he will study at one of the above mentioned HEI and will receive the first rank of officer and will serve as an officer for two years in the Armed Forces of Armenia.
“The main specialties are artillery, anti-aircraft defense, tanker and rifle platoon commander. Those who wish to apply may apply for a territorial military commissariat to be registered until the end of the academic year. After the end of the year it will be too late,” – said Serob Sujyan.
The expert noted that future soldiers will also go through a medical examination and if there are no health problems there will be no obstacles to signing the contract.
Serob Sujyan also answered students’ questions during the meeting.
In response to one of the students asking whether the time spent at a military university was considered a service, Serob Sujyan said that the period was considered a study and if the student refused to serve as an officer, then there must be two years to serve.
