How to get higher education in Ukraine? – advice for foreign students

In order to receive an invitation for study in Ukraine, you must choose an educational institution, contact its international department and submit a package of documents.


Admission for the degrees of junior bachelor, bachelor and master takes place twice a year – before and at the beginning of academic semesters (until 15.12.2021 and until 01.03.2022). Admission to postgraduate, doctoral, preparatory faculty (department) programs and academic mobility programs takes place throughout the year.


The applicant must pass entrance exams. The higher education institution calculates the points/grades of the applicant based on the document on the previously attained level of education and sets the minimum required for entry number of points/grades in general education subjects that the applicant will be tested on during the exams.


Enrollment is based on the results of entrance exams and the choice of study language.
