Explore Armenia

During their studies at UWC Dilijan our students concentrate not only on their academic knowledge, but also expand their outlook by exploring new lands, cultures and traditions. The Explore Armenia programme serves the sole mission of familiarising students with the country they will be spending two years of their lives in: it focusses on Armenia’s historical and cultural heritage its neighbours, and will connect our students with local people.

Students are provided with numerous opportunities to get to know the country through the Explore Armenia programme, which runs at weekends and allows students to take part in trips to key locations across the country. These trips have included visits to:

  • Yerevan – cultural and political capital of Armenia;
  • Gyumri – the second largest city with a rich cultural background;
  • Garni – home to a classic Greek temple;
  • Monasteries across the region.

Some of these trips also run over long weekends to provide opportunities for students to travel further afield in Armenia, such as visiting Tatev in the south.
