In Dilijan college two Armenian students met the Access group and offered them a tour of the college, presenting them information about the campus life, about the differences of IB education contrasted with that of the Armenian High School, talked about their interactions with the students from 46 other countries studying in the college.

The students visited the library, the Arts Area, the sports hall, the laboratories, also asked many questions and received a lot of information related to the student recruitment process, the complete and partial scholarships.

This was a very informative as well as a fun day for the Access students many of whom decided to respond to the currently open UWC call for applications.
