“42 Yerevan is a school where students gain a solid base in programming for free. The education provided by the school is not only advanced in its field, but also in its educational methods. We are part of a large international network along with schools in Tokyo, Amsterdam and Silicon Valley.

“Before applying, I googled a bit, got acquainted with the international network, read positive reviews, registered the same day and passed the game. I came here at zero level of knowledge in programming. During this time I have learned so much thanks to “42 Yerevan” entire program that I have already started working at Epam’’, said Gevorg Amirjanyan, the student of “42 Yerevan”.
Speaking on the atmosphere and the culture at school, another student, Serob Khachatryan, said: “ At “42 Yerevan” I love freedom above all things.
