What? Higher Education Days-Yerevan /HED?
When? May 14, 11:00-16:00
Where? 50/5 Abovyan street, Youth Foundation of Armenia
What is HED? HED is a project that wants to encourage students all over Europe to think about their Higher Education and take an action. HED has already been successfully implemented in Bucuresti, Sofia, Groningen, Beograd and Budapest. Now it is time for Yerevan.

HED in Yerevan will be organized by AEGEE-Yerevan with support of Youth Foundation of Armenia.
What is the objective of the event?The objective of the event will be to bring together all the stakeholders of Higher Education, understand the opinion of students, lecturers and stakeholders about problems students face, try to find possible solutions as well as compare Higher Education System in Armenia with one in Europe.

As a first step of the event a survey was prepared and distributed in cooperation with ARMACAD to have a general idea which points need to be emphasized more. The survey is online, so you still have couple of days to make your voice heard! Find it here.

Is there an Agenda? Sure, please download the Armenian version here, or the English Version here.

I am an active student, can I participate? Yes, we are searching for exactly an active student like you, who will not be a passive listener but will interact and be active during the whole event.

So if you are interested send you details (Name/Surname, University, Degree, Motivation) to info@aegeeyerevan.am.

We believe that students know best what the points to be improved in education systems are. So, in the HED events students together with lecturers, policy makers and stakeholders are encouraged to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the current education system and seek for solutions!

Education is a necessity. Let’s make it a priority!
