Foreign citizens choose our educational institution because of the high quality of education and the prestige of the diploma. The growing number of foreign students can be regarded as an indicator of stability at the University, a high world rating of the professional knowledge acquired by foreigners. In terms of the number of foreign students, the University consistently occupies one of the leading places among higher education institutions in the city of Ternopil. Teaching for foreigners is carried out in three languages: Ukrainian, English and French.

At the Preparatory Department, students study the Ukrainian language. In addition to language training, students of the Preparatory Department have the opportunity to improve their basic education in mathematics and geography. After successfully passing the final exams, students of the Preparatory Department receive state certificates and can be enrolled in the first year of studies at their chosen faculty of WUNU, as well as any other educational institution in Ukraine. University alumni who now live and work abroad demonstrate the high level of professional training they received in Ternopil, which, in turn, contributes to the growth of the number of foreign students.
