Study in Ukraine | Tuition Fees | Costs of Living | How to Apply | List of Universities

Ukraine has majestic architecture of many cathedrals and monasteries and  adventure-packed mountain ranges – if you like skiing, hiking, mountain biking or rock climbing, Ukraine is the best option for you.

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 Kiev, Zaprozhye, Dnepropertrovsk, Lviv and Odesa. It also 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.

Applying to universities in Ukraine

Applying to universities in Ukraine is fairly simple – just apply directly to your chosen university with a copy of your passport and your most recent academic results (i.e. high school grades if applying for a bachelor’s degree and bachelor’s certificate if applying for a master’s degree).

Please for specific information on how you can apply, visit the school’s webpage.

I have shared here all the list of universities in Ukraine to help you have an idea of the potential of Ukrainian universities. All the universities of Ukraine are government universities, there is no private university in Ukraine, so, as an international student, you can choose to study in Ukrainian universities without any doubt.

Ukraine Visa Requirements

Students from Andorra, Belarus, Canada, European Union countries, Iceland, Japan, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Monaco, Norway, Russia, San Marino, Switzerland, South Korea and the US also do not require visas for stays up to 90 days. Students from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova and Uzbekistan do not require a visa to enter Ukraine for an indefinite stay. Everyone else will require a visa to study in Ukraine.

As long as your country of origin has a Ukrainian embassy, Ukraine visa requirements are fairly straightforward. Once you have received your invitation letter, you can simply apply online at http://visa.mfa.gov.ua for your visa, and book an appointment at your nearest consulate. You’ll need to take originals of the following documents with you, and may need to make photocopies of them as well (check with your embassy beforehand to avoid delays);

  • Invitation letter
  • Visa application form
  • Birth certificate
  • Passport (valid for at least one year)
  • Eight to 18 recent passport-sized photographs (some embassies may ask for only two or three – check
  • with your embassy to confirm)
  • Bank statement to prove financial ability OR sponsorship letter from the person bearing your expenses
  • during your stay in Ukraine (these may not be a requirement for all nationalities – check with your embassy to confirm)
  • Medical health certificate, with examination completed no earlier than two months before start of study
  • Medical insurance confirmation letter
  • Results of HIV/AIDS test, taken no earlier than two months before start of study, in the form of an HIV/AIDS free certificate
  • An open-ended return ticket valid for one year
  • Certificate of completed higher secondary education (including transcript and mark sheet) for first year bachelor’s students
  • Additional documents for master’s and PhD students include a diploma/degree certificate, transcripts and mark sheets of all academic years
  • You may also require details of your permanent address and term-time address, so make sure you have these written down or memorized.

Tuition fees in Ukraine

Tuition fees vary per school, schools in some cities charge higher tuition fees than others. Ukrainian universities may administer a tuition fee package which includes costs of textbooks, exams, assistance with opening a bank account and pick-up from the airport by a representative.

You should generally expect to pay around US$2,500-5,800 per year for a bachelor’s degree, with preparatory courses costing around US$1,800. International students entering a Ukrainian university for the first time will have to pay the full fees for their first academic year upfront, and then can pay per semester for following academic years. Your university may also charge a one-off registration fee on arrival (around US$10-30).

Financial Aid

Most international students in Ukraine finance their stay without help from scholarships and, as such, Ukraine does not offer government-based financial aid. Many students choose to study in Ukraine due to its significantly lower total living costs compared to other European countries, with students only needing around US$2,500 per year to cover their costs of living.

You can apply later for student support grants in your school, or you apply to the government of your country for sponsorship.

Student accommodation in Ukraine

Most Ukrainian students live in hostels and dormitories. These come in various forms, and you’ll usually share your accommodation with one or two students. You could also choose to live in a flat off-campus with a small group of students, or stay with a Ukrainian host family. In this case, you must inform your university of your term-time address.

Living costs in Ukraine

In order to live comfortably while you are in all over the Ukraine , the student will need to have about $USD1200 to US$ 1500 per year available for living costs, above the cost of your tuition. The cost of living is cheaper, lot more than other European cities. It is difficult to give a precise figure because of differences in the student lifestyle. We are giving approximate costs below
