Ukraine is home to many prestigious universities that attract students from all over the world. In this article, we will look at five universities in Ukraine with international status and recall their history.


Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv (KNU)


Founded in 1834, Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Ukraine.


The original name of the university was the Kyiv Theological Institute, and later it acquired the status of a university and became known as Kyiv University.


Throughout its history, the university has repeatedly changed its name and status. In 1863, the university was closed by the authorities for the participation of students in the Polish War and resumed its activities only in 1865 under the name of St. Volodymyr's Kyiv Imperial University. In 1917, the university became the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv in honor of the great Ukrainian poet.


KNU has been actively developing throughout its history and eventually became a leading center of education and research in Ukraine.


It is worth noting that KNU is constantly included in the rankings of the best higher education institutions in the world.

Ivan Franko National University of Lviv (LNU)


Ivan Franko National University of Lviv was founded in 1661 and is also one of the oldest universities in Europe and Ukraine, as well as one of the most prestigious in the country. LNU is known for its high level of academic standards and active participation in international projects and exchanges.


According to some reports, Lviv Academy with university rights was founded in 1661 by a decree of King Jan II Casimir, who granted the Jesuit College in Lviv "the dignity of an academy and the title of a university." In 1773 the Jesuit order was banned and the university was closed. It was reopened in 1784 and was called the University of St. Joseph. In 1805-1817 it was a lyceum, and in 1817 it was reopened as a university.


In the 70s of the nineteenth century, Ivan Franko, a world-famous Ukrainian thinker, writer, scientist, translator, psychologist, political and public figure, and one of the geniuses of Ukraine, studied at the Faculty of Philosophy of Lviv University.


On January 8, 1940, the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Ukrainian SSR named Lviv State University after Ivan Franko. Today it is one of the main schools of French studies in Ukraine.

Kyiv-Mohyla Academy (KMA)


The Kyiv-Mohyla Academy is one of the most prestigious educational institutions in Ukraine, with a rich history that dates back to the seventeenth century.


The KMA was founded in 1632 in Kyiv, which at that time was part of the Polish-Lithuanian Royal Republic. The founder of the academy was Metropolitan Petro Mohyla of Kyiv-Halych, who sought to create an educational institution that would combine Orthodox theology and the humanities. Initially, the academy was called the Kyiv Brotherhood School.


At the end of the eighteenth century, the academy faced difficulties and was closed by the Russian authorities.


In 1992, after Ukraine gained its independence, the Academy was reorganized into the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy and became a non-denominational university.


Today, Kyiv-Mohyla Academy is one of the leading universities in Ukraine.


Kharkiv National Automobile and Highway University (KhNADU)


Another one of the country's leading universities is called Kharkiv National Automobile and Highway University. 


The history of KhNADU began in 1930, when the Kharkiv Institute of Automobile and Road Construction was established. Over the years, the Institute has developed and expanded its academic programs, becoming an important center of education and research in the field of automotive and road construction.


In 1993, the institute was granted university status and renamed Kharkiv National Automobile and Highway University. This gave the university more autonomy and the opportunity to expand its academic programs and research.


It is worth noting that today the university offers a wide range of educational programs in the field of automotive and road construction, including mechanical engineering, automotive engineering, road construction, transport management and others. 


Kharkiv National Automobile and Highway University has strong scientific ties and cooperates with other universities, research institutes and industrial partners both in Ukraine and abroad. The university is also actively involved in international exchange programs, providing its students with the opportunity to gain international experience and training.

Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (KPI)


The history of NTUU "KPI" began in 1898, when the Kyiv Polytechnic Institute was founded. It was the first polytechnic institution in the Russian Empire and offered a wide range of technical and engineering programs.


Throughout its history, the institute has undergone a number of changes and expanded its academic capabilities. 


In 1997, it gained the status of a national university and was renamed the National Technical University of Ukraine "Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute" in honor of the famous Ukrainian scientist and engineer Igor Sikorsky.


The university is known for its high level of academic education and research.


NTUU "KPI" actively cooperates with leading universities and research institutes in Ukraine and abroad. The university has a developed research infrastructure and conducts numerous research projects in various fields of engineering and technology.


We remind you! There are many higher education institutions in Ukraine that enroll not only Ukrainians but also foreigners.
