Have you heard about the Ukrainian Education Department? If not, you’re not alone! Ukraine has been undergoing a series of educational reforms over the past few decades, and many people are concerned about what that means for the country. Thankfully, there is some good news, as the government’s reforms are designed to bring Ukraine closer to the European Union and other advanced European countries. In this article, we’ll take a look at what to expect from this new department.
Ukraine’s education system was shaped by 70 years of Soviet rule, but many reforms have been introduced since then. The country’s education system has moved from a lengthy single-cycle degree to a two-cycle structure that is based on the European Bologna reforms. The Ukrainian standard university degree has now been replaced by a two-cycle structure, although this is not applicable for professional disciplines. The country has also embraced the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTAS) and grading scale, as outlined in the Bologna reforms.
The Ministry of Education of Ukraine has a range of responsibilities, including informational services for foreigners and accounting of letters from educational institutions. In addition to providing information, the Ministry of Education of Ukraine is responsible for promoting Ukrainian education and improving Ukraine’s competitiveness in the international education market. The Ministry also implements international educational programs, supports international cooperation among Ukrainian educational institutions, and ensures the security of the country’s telecommunications system. It also maintains a complex information protection system, known as the “Electronic Journal”.
