The University's teachers have experience in the diplomatic sphere, executive authorities, the public sector, representative offices of foreign companies in Ukraine, and work in private companies in China and Japan, which provides our students with the knowledge that is needed in the modern world.

In the 2024-2025 academic year, the Faculty will launch a new study programme "Language and Literature (Korean)"! All the most modern trends in the development of Oriental studies and linguistics were taken into account during its creation. The Faculty already employs leading experts in Korean studies not by Ukraine but also in Europe.

Student life at the Faculty of Oriental Languages is a fascinating kaleidoscope of unforgettable moments and unrivalled experiences. At the university, every day is an opportunity to develop your interests and meet new people.

In the morning, there are tireless lectures and fascinating seminars, where every thought is a step towards understanding the world. Then there are meetings with friends in the university café, where not only scientific topics are discussed, but real friendships are born.
The uncertainty of the evening is an opportunity to discover oriental art, culture, or just have fun at exciting student events. Later, there are joint parties where different talents and energy of young people come together.
And, of course, student life is not only about learning, but also about self-realisation. Moments of thoughtfulness while preparing for exams and the joy of achievement. Such a variety of impressions and opportunities creates a unique experience that turns student years into the brightest period of life.
But the most long-awaited moment for each of our students is the confirmation of participation in a language internship in Japan, China, and recently the Republic of Korea. The University's active use of the Moodle e-course system allows our students to undertake language training abroad for one semester or academic year without interrupting their studies at the University. For example, in the last academic year alone, dozens of students of Chinese and Japanese philology dozens of students of Chinese and Japanese philology completed internships in Japan and the People's Republic of China without interrupting their studies.
