Preparatory Department is a separate division of Kamianets-Podilskyi Ivan Ohiienko National University (K-PNU) which offers a 10-months introductory course for international students. We offer language course in the Ukrainian language.

Foreign citizens who wish to receive training in Ukrainian language will be enrolled to the Preparatory Department for preparation for entering our University or other Institutions of Higher Education of Ukraine (IHEU). Preparatory Department conducts studies in the form of blended learning. We provide offline and online activities. For tasks management we use MOODLE (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) as well as teaching materials in the mix. After completion of the course, students are awarded certificates which give them the rights to enter our University or other IHEU according to curricula approved by Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. Applicants can be admitted to the K-PNU during the whole year.

Ukrainian Language Course

A 10-month integrated language course for those who will thereafter take a university degree at our University or other Ukrainian universities.

The main objective of this course is to facilitate developing speaking, listening, reading and writing skills of the international students by teaching Ukrainian language alongside with other subjects.

According to the curriculum of the introductory language course, first 7 weeks students maximum learn only the Ukrainian language. Then, after mastering the required level of language proficiency in parallel with an introduction of free choice courses the number of Ukrainian language classes is gradually decreased. Beginning from the 8 th week of study, according to the specialization students have chosen, there is an introduction of blocks of free choice courses as:

  • Arts
  • Humanities
  • Economics
  • Computer Sciences
  • Natural Sciences
  • Medical and Biological Sciences

Studying by the blocks mentioned above, students will fully master the Ukrainian language, gain special terminology needed for further study and learn minimal topics for understanding the discipline as such and its system at the University.
