YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 1, ARMENPRESS. This year the number of foreign
students at the Medical University after Mkhitar Herazi has surpassed
1000, the Assistant to Yerevan State Medical University rector Armen
Ashotian told Armenpress saying that the students mostly come from
India and Middle East.

According to him, the new university policy has reconsidered that the
mentioned countries have a great demand for doctors, unlike Armenia,
and year by year they increase the number of applicants taken the
fact that apart from quality education the tuition fee is quite
low in Armenia compared with international standards. Taking into
consideration this fact, the university prescribed more places for
foreign students.

Ashotian didn't rule out that within few years more foreigners will
study at Medical University than Armenian citizens.
