ASA is an independent organisation formally established to encourage educational pursuits by the Armenian youth of New South Wales and to foster the spirit of service in the public interest, predominantly within the Armenian sphere.

The association continues to grow as we provide a forum for

Armenian students to meet like-minded individuals at our monthly events. We have encouraged dialogue between the various youth groups and have promoted collaboration to engage a wider intersection of the community.

Our Executive Committee

We are happy to present our Executive Team for 2020 as follows:


Mariam Melkonyants - Chairperson

Ari Simonian - Treasurer

Hasmig Der Tateossian - Secretary


The team looks forward to another fantastic year for the ASA!

Our aims this year include strengthening our organisation as a platform for Armenian students and youth in NSW, as well as organising new and interesting events.

We look forward to seeing you all!

What We Are All About

ASA runs as a collective of Armenian students in combination with Alumni of Universities based in New South Wales, Australia.

Our key aims include: 

  1. Cultural Enrichment: Providing a forum for Australian Armenian students to come together and discuss key issues facing our community 

  2. Cooperation and coordination: focusing on how we can come together and preserve it for future generations.

  3. Professional Development: acting as a bridge between Armenian professionals and Armenian students.

  4. Social Interaction: to allow Armenian students to get to know each other and create bonds.

ASA NSW provides opportunities for Australian Armenian students to become actively involved and establish their voice in the larger community.​

Armenian Student Societies at NSW Universities

The University of New South Wales (UNSW), Macquarie University (MQ) and the University of Sydney (USYD) all have organised Armenian Student Societies as a result of the significant number of Armenian students who attend these institutions.​
