Being better informed guides the prospective student to decide whether it is a worthwhile venture or not. Read below, a summary of the requirements and the entire procedures.
To qualify for admission into a specific course, the student will have to satisfy the academic requirements for the particular course. Basically, this boils down to a minimum of five (5) credit passes in subjects related to the chosen course of study for undergraduate students. Postgraduate students will need to provide result transcript with course composition and certificate of a completed four years graduate program. Transfer students provides their result transcript with course outline and composition.
For an idea on how much these will be, check our article about 2011 / 2012 study in Ukraine admission overview. A four or five years university program requires accurate financial planning in order to eliminate frustrations arising from lack of funding in-between the program.
Some international students have been given the impression of assured jobs and income opportunities by their recruiting agents. Based on the information, these students gather funding for the first couple of their academic years, hoping to augment the remaining years with expected income from anticipated jobs. With the expected jobs not forthcoming and the consequential challenge of not meeting with the financial requirements, these students are faced with frustrations, leading to dropouts, wastage of valuable time / resources and sometimes do lead to deportation.
It is very important that international students planning to study in Ukraine have a concise knowledge of source of funding for the entire study period in Ukraine.
Students from visa-free countries to Ukraine only need to arrive Ukraine, by any means of transportation convenient to them. Upon arrival, they complete the university registration process and are ready for academics.
