Ukraine Universities

Ironically, most Ukraine universities are much older than post-soviet sovereign Ukraine. This is because these universities have a long history that predates present-day Ukraine.

The Ukrainian government, through its Ministry of Education and Sciences, closely monitors and regulates the educational standards in all Ukraine universities, to be at par with European and global standards.

The Ministry of education & Sciences of Ukraine, through its subsidiaries, conducts period conducts checks to ensure that the set benchmarks are not violated, and if necessary, enforces adherence to set standards.

Universities in Ukraine are construed on the philosophy of learning, and not just study. This is achieved through the balancing of the learning process with adequate practicals and real-life tasks to cement the acquired knowledge.

There are over 200 Ukraine universities across the different regions of Ukraine, although not all of them are licensed to offer university education to international students that study in Ukraine.

Ukraine universities offer a wide array of courses, ranging from engineering, medical and health sciences, economics and management, aeronautics, marines, and a host of other courses too numerous to be listed here.

Regardless of your course of interest, you are likely to find it in one of the numerous Ukraine universities.

In recent years, Ukraine universities gradually developed into an industry.

This is due to an increased influx by international students, in response to the higher demand for affordable university education, without sacrificing quality.

The population of the foreign students’ community is above 80,000 and growing.

There are three main factors that are responsible for this growth namely:

  1. Cost Advantage;
  2. Quality education;
  3. Social stability.

These are usually the main factors that most middle-class parents consider when considering to send their kids to study abroad, and all of them are available in Ukraine.

Many universities are gradually introducing the use of English as a teaching language, resulting in a growing number of courses taught in English.
