Rector's Address

The French University in Armenia has continuously trained specialists in Finance, Management, Law and Marketing. In the result of cooperation with its academic partner Jean Moulin Lyon 3 it is the only French University in the region.

In tight cooperation with the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Armenia and France, the UFAR has become the symbol of close collaboration, giving birth to ambitious projects.


In April 2015 the visit of the President of the French Republic accompanied by the RA Minister of Education and Science to the University showcased the role of the University in French-Armenian diplomatic relations. The UFAR has always endeavoured to stand out in the education system of Armenia by the professionalism of the provided education, and the relations with socio-economic environment.

Presently the UFAR has launched a postgraduate program and will assist anyone interested in carrying out a research in line with European standards.   

Your choice of our University is preconditioned by its rigor, high standards, and excellence. There can be no mistaking the excellent choice that underlies your UFAR enrollment. Our values have gained broader acceptance and lay the basis for your acquisition of professional skills. We will also offer you assistance in the process of your personal project realization in Armenia, France and other countries.

By enrolling with the UFAR you will have opted for a quality education which is sure to promote career success. Our 1600 graduates who occupy responsible positions and maintain close ties to Armenia and our University can affirm this.

I am always by your side together with the Armenian and French faculties.

Let’s build the future together.

Prof. Jean- Marc Lavest
Rector of the UFAR
