Student's Stories

Studying at Oles Honchar Dnipropetrovsk National University has been a great and wonderful experience for me. I was never more than happy to complete my education at the university right here. The teachers and staffs of the university are wonderful, kind and lovely people. Being a foreigner, I’d say things would be different but to my greatest surprise I was treated like one of them. Dnipropetrovsk is a lively, beautiful city that I will never forget!

Emmanuel Ighosogie Nosakhare (Nigeria)

Studying at Oles Honchar Dnipropetrovsk National University is interesting, efficient and professional! I'm very happy to have Masters program at economics faculty. First of all, I would like to recognize teaching staff of this University that consists of qualified specialists of their area. As for lectures, I can honestly note that they are very interesting thanks to the teachers. Masters programs are organized in a way that students have more possibility to study individually during time that is more convenient for the students. Besides studies every Masters student has at least one day in a week free of classes. This day as well as on weekends could be dedicated to studying, hobby, sightseeing or having rest in one of the most beautiful cities in Ukraine.

Aida Bagapova (Kyrgyz Repablic)

I’m very happy that I had an opportunity to study in Ukraine in such a wonderful University. I’m thankful to the teachers for the knowledge obtained, capabilities and experience… I’m going back to my native country being confident that I will find good job und will become successful. Ukraine will always stay in my heart!

Tylla Jumayeva (Turkmenistan)

I came to Ukraine from Tajikistan, my parents advised me to do that. I learned a lot during four years spent in University and fell in love with this country. I feel sad because I need to leave now – I got used to the country, people are very good here, I found friends among both compatriots and Ukrainians. The teachers explained the material in a clear and easy to understanding way so we can become good specialists in the future. I’m very thankful for the knowledge and the time they’ve spent with me.
