Head of YSU Pre-university Education Department Vachagan Galstyan told us that in 2017-2018 academic year 2791 applicants applied to YSU during the first and second stages of the admission, which makes about 30% of the total number of applicants passing the unified system: “The number of graduates has dropped dramatically in recent years, but we are trying to keep the 30% threshold of applicants in the country. Of course, consistent work with high school graduates contributes to all this.”
As for the problem of having few applicants at some faculties, the lowest rates this year were at the faculties of Chemistry, Russian Philology and Theology. And the most popular ones were the faculties of “Informatics and Applied Mathematics”, “International Relations” and “Law”.
Mr. Galstyan said they had set themselves the task to create all the necessary prerequisites to ensure a sustainable flow of applicants as well as evaluate the negative demographic trends and the impacts of other environmental factors.
It should be noted that the results of the admission and the list of admitted applicants were posted on the website “Applicant” of YSU Portal on July 14.
After the announcement of the results of the competition, the competition for vacant places began. The deadline for submission of applications was July 20. 58 people applied to the third stage of the admission this year. There are over 800 vacant places available in 38 of the 52 registered professions.
