42 Yerevan is a tuition-free programming school designed to train the coders of the future. An initiative of the EU-supported TUMO Labs, the educational program within the EU TUMO Convergence Center for Engineering and Applied Science, 42 Yerevan joins a network of France-based programming schools, with locations in Tokyo, Amsterdam, Rio de Janeiro, Moscow, and 16 other cities around the world.
42 Yerevan is completely free, with no monthly or annual fees. For prospective students outside of Yerevan, 42 offers special conditions. Our mission is to ensure that everyone should have access to education, no matter their financial situation.
Anyone over the age of 18 can study at 42 Yerevan, with no previous knowledge in the field or any other prerequisites necessary. Upon application, students are given a logic-based test. If successful, students can move to the next step.
With 42’s revolutionary educational program, students work on projects that interest them in close collaboration with their peers. The center is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, so students can attend 42 based on their own personal schedules.
Data from 42 centers indicate that over 95% of graduates find high-paying jobs in the field. The average length of time spent studying at 42 is 2 years, after which students become high quality programmers ready to enter the job market.
42 Yerevan will be located within the EU TUMO Convergence Center. However, 42 will have a short-term home until the center is completed. Located in Yerevan’s Tumanyan Park, the building that will temporarily house 42 was originally built in 1985. Owned by Sirius, one of the largest producers of technical and electronic equipment in Soviet Armenia, the Children’s Technical Creativity House was involved in educating young professionals in electronic technology, guiding their work in the primary scientific and production centers in the country. Notable Soviet-era academic Abel Aghanbekyan played a key role in the educational center, donating 35 computers to the center in its first year. The center was led by Shavarsh Karapetyan, a hero of the Soviet Union. Now, nearly 30 years later, the building will again serve as a center of education and technology.
