The Summer Ukrainian Language and Culture Program is the largest and one of the most prestigious language programs in Ukraine, welcoming approximately one hundred students from over twenty countries each summer.
The Summer Program is a unique combination of academics and culture. Each day consists of Ukrainian language classes, one-on-one tutoring, workshops or lectures about Ukrainian history, politics, economy, art, culture or contemporary issues. Afternoon and weekend excursions are conducted to immerse students even more into Ukrainian life and culture.

Language classes are offered at proficiency levels ranging from beginner to advanced, and each session can be chosen at two levels of intensity: standard and intensive. Each day, every student meets one-on-one with a Ukrainian native speaking tutor who also, if needed, accompanies the student on evening activities and excursions to maximize language learning.
The Summer Program consists of six weeks. Sessions are customizable to meet student criteria and requirements, where students may choose any number of days or weeks of study during the six weeks. Participants are eligible to obtain academic credits upon successful completion of the course and passing of the final exam.
