Armenia sees itself primarily as a European cultural nation. Culture and education play an important role in public life of Armenia.
Foreign scholarships, such as the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and a number of other exchanges and opportunities in the education field have a strong attraction.
The Bologna reforms and the required university modernization should be accelerated with the support of the EU. Currently, Armenia holds the Secretary for the Bologna Process. In May 2015 the meeting of the competent ministers of the countries participating in the Bologna Process took place in Armenia.
For the Ministry of Culture of Armenia it is a special concern to involve the regions outside the capital in the cultural events. The cultural landscape continues to get richer and with more varierty. Since June 1992 Armenia is a member of the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization).
My experience in Yerevan is, that it often lacks in funds for the cultural and educational institutions regarding basic facilities and adequate payments for teachers and professors.
