Description

Known as KNU, the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv was established in 1834 in the Ukrainian Capital of Kiev.

It is the country’s third oldest university and although it was founded as the Kiev Imperial University of Saint Vladimir, it was renamed in 1939 after Taras Shevchenko, a Ukrainian poet and political figure who is considered a founder of modern Ukrainian literature.

The KNU university buildings are mostly located in the centre of Kyiv. The Red University Building is the principal university building, and is also a recognised national symbol of Ukraine’s higher education system. The building houses a large enclosed courtyard, and behind the building is the university’s A.V. Fomin Botanical Garden, home to one of the world’s tallest greenhouses.

Other notable buildings include the Yellow Building, which houses the KNU Humanities department, and the Maksymovych Library which is the largest research library in the country. Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv also has an astronomical observatory, which was founded in 1845.

The university comprises of 13 faculties, eight institutes, one research centre and two colleges. It has bilateral partnership agreements with about 230 educational and scientific institutions across the world, and partnership agreements with more than 400 different universities.

KNU students benefit from a large campus with contemporary accommodation, sports facilities, cafeterias, computer facilities and a health spa.

In its long history KNU has had some notable former students, including Petro Poroshenko, who became Ukranian president in 2014; former United Nations president Hennadiy Udovenko; and world-renowned boxing brothers Wladimir and Vitaly Klitschko.

I graduated from this university in 2017, and I would like to share my impressions. University of them Taras Shevchenko is very popular, as he has many different faculties, and people come to him from different parts of the country. I have only positive emotions, as the level of teaching is very high. Professors are very loyal to their students, and enter their position and can take actions. I would also like to note with pleasure that he is one of the 100 best universities in Central and Eastern Europe, and if you want a decent education, you can safely submit documents here.

Very important aspect of studying is that tutors and professors encourage to learn and find out more information about the subjects. I would like to highlight the way of teaching also. Because the main goal of tutors is to make students really know what we have to and make us good professionals in future. The system is very easy and comfortable. The studying itself is pretty enjoyable for those who really want to know something.
