Itineraries include lectures, cultural excursions, workshops, and various activities lead by UCU’s premier professors. All activities may be conducted in English or Ukrainian.

How to book:

Simply contact us and indicate what you would like us to arrange for your group. We will then put together a proposed program for your group to be approved by you. The program can be altered as required.

Course content:

Students on group programs are normally taught as closed groups. The group leader will normally indicate to us the number of lessons required per week, as well as the specific topics, areas of grammar or language functions that are to be covered in the lessons. Our university will then prepare the specific course content.


Your group will stay at newly build Collegium Residence surrounded by beautiful Stryskyj Park. Each room has a private bath with shower, refrigerator, closet space and shelving, workplace area and free WiFi. To see the photo please follow this link…. Groups may also make their own accommodation arrangements if they prefer. 


We are normally asked to include an activities program. This is made to suit the requirements of the group. The group may simply indicate what is to be included, and we will also make suggestions.

Group size:

A group can be any size, from 10 students upwards. Typical groups are 10 to 30 students. 


A group program will typically last 1 or 2 weeks but can be any length.


The Study Tour Program cost includes tuition, accommodation, cultural activities, airport transfers, a bilingual resident director, tours, on-site transport, and pre-departure information. 

Once the group leader approves the proposed program and wishes to proceed with the booking, they will be asked to pay a deposit for each student in the group. This is due 8 weeks before the arrival of the group.

Accompanying tutors:

We normally provide free accommodation for tutors accompanying the group.

We do not arrange travel itineraries or insurance.
