Recently the ambassador of the UK in Armenia Mr Charles Lonsdale has visited hospitable Quantum College. Before finishing his diplomatic mission in Armenia he has had a wish to visit Quantum College, to get acquainted with the life within the college, its progress and further plans.
The ambassador was especially happy for the fact that the college is the first Armenian school in the world that has become a member of a world famous organization and since September, 2011 has offered the Diploma Programme of the International Baccalaureate (IB). He assured that it's a very serious programme, which gives Armenian teenagers a real chance to continue their education in the world famous universities after their graduation.
Mr. Charles Lonsdale toured the college, had a meeting with the students and the teaching staff. He talked about the things done in the embassy and about the impressions that he got of Armenia. The students asked Charles Lonsdale a lot of questions and got thorough answers to all of them. The questions were from quite different spheres. The ambassador was deeply impressed with the intellectual level of the students, their excellent knowledge of the English language and their curiosity.
At the end, he mentioned that the meeting with the college students was the most memorable one among all the meetings he had had during the four years of his stay in Armenia.
The ambassador left the college greatly impressed and assured that in the face of Quantum College he had got new and true friends.
