YEREVAN. - Yerevan State University has admitted only 693 students
in new academic year, due to the lack of school graduates, said YSU
Rector Aram Simonyan to a press conference, adding the figure does
not include foreign students.

According to him, most students applied for faculties of legal and
historical studies, faculties of international relations, Armenian
philology, applied mathematics and foreign languages.

Simonyan mentioned that the tuition has not increased and will not
increase in coming years, since the current figure must be compatible
with social and economic realities of the country.

YSU Rector added that despite of the shortfall in the university,
the Ministry of Education and Science has kept public financing of
higher education.
