Yerevan State University is the oldest university in Armenia, as it was established in 1919, and, by the way, it’s celebrating it’s 100th anniversary this year. While being old, YSU is really modern, despite the old buildings. It’s already a year that we started also online education, which gives you the opportunity to get all the materials you need of exact subject from an online platform, where you also answer questions and do tests, and where you can get in direct contact with your lecturer via online chat. Despite this online system, YSU is also one of the best universities in Armenia that gives you also good traditional method education. It has also the biggest university library where you can get most of the books you need (also in online format). Of course, there are many minor disadvantages, but there’s no such University which is perfect. That’s why I always recommend my junior friends to apply to YSU!View more
From all higher education institutions in Armenia YSU is the closest to the Soviet standards. Everything here is not like I expected when I was a first-year student. If I had a different profession and not the profession of Computer Sciences and Applied Mathematics, I would definitely get a chance to change the university or go abroad to get a higher education.
The most global and seemingly incorrigible issue is in the system of exams.That means YSU teaches its students HOW to pass any exam. But don’t you think that the main purpose of every university should not be that? However, this and any other issue has an almost century-old approach so it will be very difficult to change anything. The only thing that we can do is be proud to receive a diploma of higher education so that we will be able to find a job in Armenia if we stay here.
I studied Social Psychology. In general, the professors were qualified. However, the university is disorganized and if there was a problem with a date or an exam, the student is to blame not the university. Moreover, you can’t complain if something’s wrong or if a professor is not qualified or something.View more
Great place, where one who wants to study can learn a lot, amd in another hand if one just attends classes will learn nothing.
Here I met many dedicated and clever lecturers, however there were lecturers who had poor knowledge about the class they offer.
Well, I can only speak about the department I studied in – Romance and Germanic Languages. Aside from a few select individuals, the university overall gives you nothing than a regular 6-month language course wouldn’t give. Outdated teaching practices, outdated books, outdated mindset – that was my YSU experience.
Save yourself some time and go learn a language somewhere else. If you are hoping to become a linguist – you will not.
I have studied at my university for 6 years and those years were one of the best period in my life. The university gave me education, experience, a lot of friens and unforgettable memories. I would like to recommend to study there, because it gives not only education, but also it makes you be a good and sensible person .View more
Well, I have studied in Yerevan State University for 5 years. In my opinion this University is a favorable option for people who want to get a good and sufficient education for their future, of course the University has its advantages and disadvantages.
I would like to concentrate on the staff of the University, In my opinion exists associate professors that have so good knowledge and experience and practice, but also exists many professors that does not have sufficient knowledge for teaching in such kind of University.
My overall opinion of Yerevan State University is that it has a lot of excellent opportunities to succeed. What I really like is that in the main building of the University you can find a big library, where I spend most of my time. I think that Yerevan State University is a great place for getting your degree, as this has a good level of educationView more
I’ve studied there 4(Bachelor’s)+2(Master’s) years, at the faculty of “Informatics and applied mathematics”. I got all the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge to become an IT specialist.
What’s need to be improved: It would be great to have more practical lessons other than theoretical ones.
