Student Reviews

If Harry Potter was a future philologist from Ukraine, he would study in Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University.
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

The educational program of the university is designed to develop all the necessary skills needed for a specialist(philologist). Students are provided with modern facilities and the latest teaching methods. Apart from attaining a high level of English, I managed to gain new competencies while studying, so I think the approach is effective and teachers are highly qualified.

literally One of the best universities in Ukraine
