Ukraine acts as a bridge between central and eastern Europe, bordering the Russian Federation, Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Moldova. It is the largest country in Europe, containing 0.41% of the world’s territory and 0.85% of the world’s population. Ukraine is home to fantastic natural landscapes, architectural landmarks, and golden-domed churches. Its Carpathian Mountains are a popular destination for skiing, hiking, fishing, and hunting, whilst its coastline on the Black Sea draws attention during the summer months.
The Ukrainian education system is one of the best in the world, with higher education institutions first established in the country during the 17th century. It has been a popular destination for international students for many years, as the experienced teaching, diversity of courses, and high European standards on offer have resulted in a fantastic academic reputation, particularly for the study of medicine, nursing, technology, and engineering. In 2005, Ukraine joined the Bologna Process which aims to integrate the Ukrainian education system into the European Higher Education Area.

There are a wide range of benefits to studying higher education in Ukraine, including:
Courses at higher education institutions in Ukraine can be delivered in Ukrainian, Russian, or English language. International students have the choice of over 240 institutions for their studies, with the option to specialise in almost any subject. Every year, higher education institutions in Ukraine welcome international students from over 150 countries. Where required, preparatory programmes are also available, although many international students can enter higher education in Ukraine directly into year 1.
In comparison to other European countries, the cost of education in Ukraine is significantly little, even for a medical degree. Ukraine is also one of the most affordable countries in Europe in relation to living expenses, whilst still offering the full European standard of catering, transport, and facilities.
International students and legal asylum seekers in Ukraine have the same rights, freedoms, and obligations as Ukrainian citizens. For deserving candidates, visas are 100% assured.
Morgan Oxford Education has supported international students to study medicine in Ukraine, many of whom now practice as doctors in Nigeria, the USA, and the UK. The quality of teaching in Ukraine is of very high standard, and students can transfer knowledge from their studies directly into the workplace. Courses often focus on practical training, and provide a high standard of teaching that is recognised elsewhere in the world.
Culture and social life
All universities in Ukraine have active student unions that organise social and academic activities, including conferences to present research. A wide range of gyms, theatres, exhibitions, and cinemas are also available at a very reasonable price, and most offer a special discount for students. Ukraine is respectful of all cultures and allows international students to take time away from university to celebrate traditional holidays. This gives students the opportunity to share their culture and traditions with others around them.
