As a result of cooperation with the tourism specialists of the Department of Service of the Faculty of Geography and Geology of the Yerevan State University, a decision was made to create a platform called TravelGuide within the EPIC project.
TravelGuide is an EPIC project educational tourism platform. The course differs from other similar courses by its non-academic nature. Without being limited to lectures only, students will have the opportunity to participate in active seminars, discussions, thematic excursions, conduct group work, create their own tour packages and present their own works. This course could provide additional knowledge and tools to develop further scientific and research work.
Main objectives of the course are:
To promote the development of tourism as one of the most profitable branches of the economy,
To exchange experiences at the international level,
To establish student-postgraduate-scientist triparty links.
We are waiting for students from different countries interested in tourism development. The course will enable tourism specialists to discover and develop new and different tourist destinations, which will become a visiting card for many tourists.
