Why Study in Ukraine


Ukraine is located in the east of Europe and borders Belarus and Russia to the north and east, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary in the west, Romania and the Republic of Moldova to the southwest and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south. The capital and biggest city of the country is Kyiv. Kharkiv, Dnipro, Lviv and Odesa are metropolitan areas as well. In total, more than 44,4 million people live in Ukraine.

Since 2005 Ukraine is a full member of the European Higher Education Area. Study programmes at Ukrainian higher education institutions are designed according to the Bologna process requirements. All graduates get issued a Diploma Supplement which allows recognition of Ukrainian qualifications in the European Union. The first level of higher education equals 4 years of formal studies and leads to Bachelor’s degree.



If you’ve ever visited Ukraine on holiday, you’ve probably experienced the majestic architecture of the many cathedrals and monasteries and the adventure-packed (though relatively modest in terms of height) mountain ranges – whether you went skiing, hiking, mountain biking or rock climbing (and you definitely have to do at least one of those in Ukraine!).

Ukraine is also home to over 800 institutes of higher education and has a varied economy, concentrated mostly in and around big cities such as Kyiv, Zaporizhzhia, Dnipro, Lviv and Odesa. As of the start of 2019, 75,606 international students from 154 countries study at 443 Ukrainian Higher Education Institutions. It’s worth noting Ukraine has significantly lower tuition fees than many countries, both in Europe and worldwide. So, whether you’re a history buff, nature lover or a future entrepreneur, opportunities to study in Ukraine could be just what you’re looking for.

Invitation letter

All international applicants coming to Ukraine intending to study must obtain a student visa, which is only possible upon receiving an “Invitation to study” from the university they are applying to. The Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine defines the standard of the invitation letter.

Visa Application

Students from countries that require a visa or have signed an agreement on a visa-free period of up to 90 days (tourist, private and business travel) shall apply for a long-stay visa (type D) to Ukraine, which allows you to stay in Ukraine longer than 90 days.

To obtain a long-stay visa (type D), a prospective student shall submit a series of documents to the consulate or embassy of Ukraine in their respective country as indicated on the embassy’s website. Regardless of where you submit your documents, you will always be asked to include the original “Invitation to study”. We would like to stress that the documents from your previous education must be officially certified before submission to the consulate. This can be done in one of two ways: legalised by the Ministry of Education and Science, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of Ukraine in your country or certified by Apostille stamp and legalized at the Embassy of Ukraine in your country. These documents must be officially recognized in Ukraine for a Ukrainian university to be able to issue your diploma certificate upon graduation.

All “Invitations to study” issued by universities undergo mandatory registration at the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine before being issued to applicants. Our Center performs such registrations on behalf of the Ministry and provides official confirmation of such registration to the Consulate of Ukraine in respective countries.
