In the context of the Francophonie Yerevan Summit, on October 10, on the initiative of  Northern University  Rector Boris Makichyan, a public report  entitled "Remarkable  Episodes of the Armenian-French Friendship " was organized, which was presented  by Doctor of Historical Sciences, Professor Ashot Nersisyan.  Greeting present guests, Boris  Makichyan first offered to give a minute of silence to the memory of the world-famous chansonie, the great Armenian Charles Aznavour, then touched upon the necessity of organizing the event.

“The Armenians  have a special love for the French people, the atmosphere of mutual understanding and solidarity has always been between these  two countries, and today we could not lose the chance  to present the Armenian youth, especially students,  the  remarkable pages of the Armenian-French friendship”.

Then, Professor A. Nersisyan presented the remarkable pages of the Armenian-French friendship, starting with the 17th century, when in 1663 Shahmurat of Bitlis  met French Emperor Louis XIV for the first time, in order to receive his support to free the Armenian people from the control of his age-old enemies.

Later,  the speaker touched upon the remarkable warm attitude shown by  the Emperor Napoleon  to  the Mekhitarist Congregation, and stressed the great support of the French people during World War I, especially during the Battle of Musa Dagh.

Northern University Students will have an  opportunity to receive European diplomas

 Partnership Perspectives

Northern University cooperates with a number of European universities within the framework of various educational programs, but the partnership relations with Poland are more active and effective. For the last six years,  within the staff and student mobility programs, a number of students have studied at  Adam Mickiewicz University in Poland, and the best specialists have delivered lectures there. At the same time,  Northern University has implemented  Bachelor and Master Degree  educational  programs for Polish students.

Currently, the Polish Embassy is the first, who has responded to Northern University’s another initiative, which is to organize Armenian language training courses for embassy staff members, operating in Republic of Armenia. According to preliminary agreement, the first stage of Armenian language training  will launch  in November.

Recently, the Management of Leszno University in Poland has  expressed an initiative  to cooperate with  Northern University, and the University delegation, headed by Rector, Professor Maciej Pietrzak,  in September 11, with a four-day visit was hosted  at  Northern University.

Rector Boris Makichyan warmly welcomed the guests and mentioned that there is much in common between the two universities: both are newly founded and in a short period have managed to enjoy reputation not only in their own countries, but also beyond their boundaries.

The Rector expressed his gratitude to the fact,  that from many   Armenian traditional universities, the Management  of Leszno  University  has chosen especially their institution, which is binding.

 

He also mentioned that they will create all the conditions for the  Polish students education, by  providing accommodation, ensuring all the means for  adapting in the Armenian environment quickly.

During the round-table discussion,   the Head of Leszno University Delegation, Rector Maciej Pietrzak, first of all  presented the history of their university. He mentioned that although the University has a history of twenty years, it has already managed to gain great reputation and recognition in Poland, and throughout the European region. To this was a contribution  the University's convenient location and harmonious location of all infrastructures as well,  and  favorable conditions for students. The  Rector Maciej Pietrzak also added that while establishing the University it was taken into consideration  the  organization of  students' education with little financial opportunities in their native city, although the university has many students from different cities and countries.

Then Maciej Pietrzak  presented four main directions of cooperation with  Northern University: staff exchange within the framework of Erasmus +  program, providing joint diplomas, expanding economic ties, and strengthening scientific cooperation.

During the meeting, the delegation representatives  noted that they highly appreciate the achievements of Northern University gained during the short period of it’s existence,  student-oriented and high-quality education, serious steps towards cooperation with European universities.

The Rector of Leszno University expressed  hope, that the cooperation agreement between the  two universities will open new perspectives for both institutions.

He added that according to that agreement,  Northern University will become a unique institution in Armenia, wich  students will have an opportunity to receive double- European and Northern University diplomas.

During the four-day visit, Leszno University delegation members  visited Garni-Geghard, Lake Sevan, and came up with lectures for students and staff of Northern University.

Let us add, that Polish guests were not only impressed by the warm welcome and hospitality of  Northern University, but also with the simple, kind and frank  attitude of our people.
