YEREVAN – The European Students’ Union demands that students are not viewed as passive consumers and advocates that students must have a word on every aspect of governance. This argument was repeatedly defended at the last regional meeting of ministers of education that took place in Armenia on 17 and 18 October, co-organised by the Ministry of Education and Science of Armenia, the Council of Europe and ESU, under the aegis of the Armenian Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe.

Students’ participation was a core theme at the meeting and led to intense debates among the delegations that expressed in a final declaration their commitment to facilitating student participation in higher education governance.

Self-certification and implementation of national qualifications frameworks were other two subjects that were broadly discussed. Students’ participation was also a part of those discussions and it was clearly understood that students must be involved at all levels of development and implementation of national qualifications frameworks.

The final declaration - adopted by the national delegations of Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Georgia, Moldova, Romania, the Russian Federation and Ukraine – pledged a commitment of national delegations to enhance student centred learning and expressed their willingness to strengthen transparency by providing more information on their higher education systems, qualifications and policies. The participants in the meeting were evidently satisfied with the results of sharing experiences and good practices.

Several delegates of ESU addressed the conference in Armenia as well as national student representatives from the Armenian National Student Association (ANSA), that is a member union of ESU.

As our company is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case <a href="" title="Harga BlackBerry Terbaru">Harga BlackBerry Terbaru</a> | <a href="" title="Download wechat">Download wechat</a>
