In order to be eligible and receive admission into Ukraine university, the student will have to meet some criteria. The section on requirements to study in Ukraine covers this.

Sometimes, the student may be required to deposit a part payment of the tuition fees, if the student is self processing the admission. However, students that are referred by reputable agents usually do not pass through this path, as the agent concerned endorses the student.
Once this step is completed, the student proceeds to process a student visa, if applicable for the student, and prepares for the life changing trip.
On arrival, the student completes the necessary registration requirements and medical checkups. When completed, the university issues a student identification card and hostel entry permit card to the student, which finally completes the admission process to the Ukraine University.
In Ukraine, academic activities in any Ukraine university for a new academic year start from 1st of September each year. Students that will be studying in English language are expected to have arrived and completed all necessary registrations before this date. However, students that will study in native Ukrainian language or Russian language are allowed to arrive a bit later for the one year language program, but not later than 15th of November. Sometimes, this may be extended, but it is better to plan on arriving before this date.
Lectures in any Ukraine university are offered in either the native language or English language. For Ukraine nationals, the native language is mandatory. Foreign students have a choice of either the native language or English language. However, although most courses are now offered in English language, there are still some courses not available in English language. In such a situation, the foreign student will have to undergo a one year language program. A separate certificate of proficiency for the language, is awarded to the student, on graduation.
Foreign students studying in any Ukraine university fall into any of below three study programs namely:
    Undergraduate program
    Postgraduate program
    Doctorate program
Most undergraduate programs normally run for a period of four (4) academic years. Medical courses, however, are an exception. Students have a choice of continuing to a Masters degree, on completion of the undergraduate program. The duration will depend on the student's graduation grades, in the undergraduate program.
Postgraduate program is based on completed undergraduate program. Students of the same university almost always have an automatic offer of a postgraduate continuation, depending on the student's academic performance. For transfer students, they will have to provide authenticated evidence of a completed undergraduate program, including their undergraduate project work, result transcript and the certificate.
Students in any Ukraine university normally reside in hostel accommodations provided by the university. The Hostels are usually in close proximity to lecture classes. Studying in any Ukraine university, the student is expected to be academically active. There is zero tolerance for non-serious students. Missed classes, for whatever reasons, must be compensated with extra hours of work.
Successful admission to any Ukraine university is a step forward towards achieving the academic dreams of the student, while safeguarding the student's future and that of the family through prospects of a professional career. It is Rewarding, Safe and Cost Effective.
