I would like to welcome you to the official website of the leading establishment of higher education in Ukraine - Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.
Founded in 1834, Kyiv University may boast of generation after generation of academics, lecturers and students who have made invaluable contributions to science, education, culture and society, to improve the lives of the people of our country. Over many decades, each generation of graduates has added to the greatness and glory of their alma mater.
Each passing year has seen our university strengthen its leading position in science, education and the culture of both Ukraine and the whole world. The Decree issued by the President of Ukraine on 5 May 2008 entitled "Measures to further improve the status of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv" placed significant responsibility on the teaching staff, by setting preconditions for the transformation of the university into becoming the academic vanguard in Ukraine for academic and teaching staff with higher education qualifications.
Today the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv is a classic research-based university, with a vision that highlights education, research and innovation. At the contemporary heart of its mission is education, which produces experts at the highest level, extremely competitive in the labour market, a mission which applies and extends leading-edge information technology in education and science, continually driving academic research and further integration into the European Space of education, science and IT.
I wish each applicant to our university success in choosing optimally their future career path, that undergraduates and postgraduates will not only study but also achieve, and I know that my colleagues will work to attain fruitful results in education and science. I trust that the website of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv will help in that process.
