How can we help?
Do I need a visa to enter Armenia?
Foreign students usually need a visa to enter Armenia and a temporary residence permit (one year) for a longer stay. Citizens of several countries may obtain the visa at the embassies (consulates) of the Republic of Armenia by invitation only. The person or legal entity that is interested in the applicant’s visit to the Republic of Armenia must submit the invitation. Please contact us to learn more about the visa requirements applicable to your citizenship country.
Can I apply for a scholarship to study in Armenia?
There are a huge range of scholarship opportunities available for university students and international applicants are also eligible for different scholarships. The scholarships are administered by scholarship granting entities and Armenian institutions of higher education, each of which decides which students will receive a scholarship. Certain restrictions and prerequisites may apply. For further information about scholarships, please contact us.
Is Armenia an expensive country?
One of the reasons why international students choose Armenia is because of its cost-effective, high quality education and low cost of living. A student's overall cost of living would be an average of $450 a month, or US$ 5,400 a year. It is important to note that the above calculation is just a guide in preparing your budget for studying in Armenia, and geographical location and personal lifestyle should be factored in. Your monthly personal expenses depend largely on your personal lifestyle.
Do I need medical insurance?
Most universities and colleges require that international students obtain a minimum level of medical coverage for their enrollment period. Armenia also requires insurance for international students, so it may be one of the visa requirements. In Armenia, health insurance plans for international students provide the right mix of plan benefits, value, and coverage to keep you safe and healthy. Such health programs for students will also help keep your budget balanced. For further information about insurance plans, please contact us.
