Armenia Education


The school system comprises a compulsory and free compulsory school, a general high school (where 85% of the pupils continue) and specialized vocational schools. Higher education is conducted at 22 institutions, including the University of Yerevan (founded in 1920). In the field of education, the ambition since the dissolution of the Soviet Union has been to adapt Armenia's education system to the domestic historical conditions. One sign of the efforts to create a new education system after the Soviet was the 1990 transformation of the Soviet Polytechnic University into "the state engineering university".
