Obtaining a European diploma in Ukraine is becoming increasingly popular among students seeking international education and improving their career prospects. Ukrainian universities are actively developing partnerships with European educational institutions, which allows students to obtain double degrees. 

What are the benefits of double degree programmes?

International experience: Students get a unique opportunity to study abroad, which broadens their cultural horizons and improves their language skills.

Improved CV: Diplomas from renowned European universities significantly increase graduates' chances of finding employment both in Ukraine and abroad.

Networking: Studying in international programmes allows students to establish professional connections with colleagues and professors from different countries, which can play a key role in their future career.

Adaptation to global standards: Students study in accordance with international educational standards, which ensures a higher level of knowledge and competence.

The dual degree system means that a student can study at two universities at the same time:

- The Ukrainian university provides basic education in the chosen speciality, while the foreign partner complements the studies with specific courses within the joint programme.

- Credits earned by a student at a Ukrainian university can be recognised and offset by a foreign partner.

- Training is provided in a full-time format.

- The languages of instruction are English, German or French, depending on the chosen programme and the student's preferences.

It is important to note that to participate in the programme, you need to show a good result at your university and know the language of the country where you are going to work or study. Some universities require special exams, such as IELTS, TOEFL, TestDaF, and others.
