Today, within the framework of the Erasmus+ ArmDoct Project /Reforming Doctoral Education in Armenia in line with the academic community, industry needs and the EU practices/ second package, a meeting was held with the RA MESCS.
New members of the working group, consisting of researchers from project member universities and representatives of the academic community participated in the meeting.
The Pedagogical University was represented at this meeting by the Head of the Chair of Romance and Germanic Languages and their Teaching Methods Mr. Tigran Mickaelyan. The second working package foresees the drafting of national policy for Doctorate education and corresponding legal regulatory documents, to support the process of integration of Armenia to the European higher education and research areas.
We would like to mention that before that 4 working groups had been formed to study the EU practice of Doctorate education and its admission processes, research activities and organization of courses, the process of granting the degree, as well as maintaining university- industry links.
And now, the new research group will be developing a novel national policy for the tertiary degree of higher education and regulations of organizing thereof , as well as awarding the degree.
