The new American University Kyiv (AUK) is offering Ukrainian students a transformative higher education experience in unison with Arizona State University and the Cintana Alliance, it annouced in a press release issued on June 2. It provides a world-class education aligned to serve the needs of Ukraine’s wartime and post-war economy, it says,
AUK is launching its enrollment this fall and is inviting Ukrainian students to pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees.
The Russian war against Ukraine has caused a lot of Ukrainians to temporarily move abroad. Because of these new challenges, AUK is launching its programs online in fall of 2022 with a strong commitment to welcoming its students soon to the flagship Kyiv River Port campus. Moreover, AUK will offer all successfully admitted students 75% guaranteed scholarships.
“Education is the foundation for the future prosperity of Ukraine,” Dr. Rick Shangraw, AUK Founding President, says.
“We believe that after this terrible war, Ukraine will emerge stronger and more resilient. Today, we are aiming to prepare the new generation of professionals to rebuild Ukraine and make it the most successful country in the region. With these significant wartime scholarships, we contribute to Ukraine’s victory and its future rebirth.”
AUK is the first university in Ukraine which has been designed as an innovative world-class institution with its foundation fully based on U.S. higher education standards.
It is also the first university to partner with Arizona State University (ASU) through a 25-year agreement. This is one of the largest and most innovative universities in the U.S.
The partnership gives AUK access to ASU curriculum, exchange programs, and unique opportunities to offer dual degrees from both universities – AUK and ASU.
As for scholarships, AUK designed a unique approach to scholarships for all successfully admitted students in 2022 and will constitute 75% of undergraduate costs for two academic years and 60% of graduate costs during one academic year.
“Today AUK offers a unique educational model for Ukraine. It is based on the high standards of American education, curriculum powered by Arizona State University, dual degrees and international faculty,” Dr. Roman Sheremeta, AUK Founding Rector, added.
“This combination allows us to offer the best U.S.-standard education in Ukraine for the ambitious and academically strong students. We are looking forward to welcome such learners this fall to start their exciting academic journey and to bring AUK’s slogan – Education that gives freedom- into a reality.
