FAQ

About the educational process

What is the main study language at the Program?

Most of the training is in Ukrainian, but in the second year some courses are taught in English. In order for students to have a sufficient understanding of the subjects taught in English, undergraduate programs require mandatory language pairs. Also, upon completion of the first year, students with a B2 level are required to complete English Summer School – 3 intensive weeks of English with native speakers. (The ESS is within the curriculum and is free of charge.) After the first year of study, students have a minimum of B2.

Do you help with finding internship / job search after graduation?

UCU’s Faculty of Applied Sciences has many partners – SoftServe, Eleks, EPAM, GlobalLogic, N-iX, Grammarly, Perfectial, KindGeek, ring, CoreValue, CharStudio, Ciklum, Sigma Software, Romexsoft, Ricker Lyman and many others. Often, our partners not only organize specific courses for students, but are also interested in student internship opportunities. Thus, 100% of the 3rd year students have been trained at least in one IT company. Of course, we help our students find opportunities, but they decide how to use them independently.
