Touching upon the teaching of Armenian for UWC Dilijan College students from Armenia, John Puddefoot said:

“Some of the students from Armenia come to UWC Dilijan College after graduating from high schools and we are discussing issues related to an “advanced” course of Armenian for them. As to those students from Armenia, who come to our college after completing their 11th grade, starting from January 2015 Armenian language, literature, culture, history and religion classes will be introduced for them and so their education will fully comply with national educational standards”.

Interested students can get more detailed information concerning the admission process at 13.00 tomorrow, on November 15, during the “Open Doors” at “Manukyan” hall of “Paramaz Avetisyan” sub-building at the American University of Armenia (Baghramian Avenue, 40).
