Our School

Founded in 2002,  the School of Ukrainian Language and Culture has become one of the most prestigious providers of Ukrainian language and culture programs for foreigners in Ukraine. The academic courses offered include both intensive and non-intensive Ukrainian language classes, semester abroad programs, summer schools, Ukrainian lessons for individuals, online Ukrainian lessons, study group trips, and an internship program.

The School’s programs provide a unique opportunity to learn about Ukraine’s language, culture, and modern life firsthand. Lviv is known as the cultural center of Ukraine, and so the city is perfect for complete immersion into the country and its traditions, accelerating acquisition of the language.

School facilities

The School of Ukrainian Language and Culture is located just outside of the Lviv city center, easily accessible by Lviv public transport and UCU shuttle. The campus is newly renovated, modern, and fully equipped.

Each classroom has audio and video units, satellite TV, and free WiFi. The school also has the latest multimedia, computer, video, and audio capabilities. There is a fully functioning computer lab available to all students, as well as a spacious auditorium where various events are held. This auditorium is often utilized for the cultural portion of our Ukrainian programs, where different lectures, performances, movies, and ceremonies are held.

In addition, the campus also houses a modern library and a church, where daily church services are held. On the ground floor, there is a full service cafeteria where delicious traditional Ukrainian dishes are served daily for students and staff members.

When not in class, students can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and relax in the common areas found in several places around the school. Free time can also be spent outdoors on the school’s spacious property – there are several shaded benches and a picturesque city park nearby where students can relax or study.
