Ukraine has been offering a high standard of tertiary education for almost 400 years. The first university in Ukraine was set up in 1632 and attracted students from outside Ukraine, a trend which has continued down to this present times.
Many international students are enamored with the Ukrainian higher education system due to its experienced lecturers, the large amount of courses available, its affordability and its high quality standards which is a result of Ukraine being a member of the Bologna process that regulates higher education in Europe. This ensures that higher education qualifications from Ukraine are recognized in the whole of Europe according to the Lisbon convention which Ukraine signed in 2005. Its education system is rated number one in Eastern and Central Europe. All these come at a fraction of what it costs to study in many other countries.
