STUDENT EXCHANGE

Kyiv-Mohyla Academy




The exchange with the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy is open to MA and PhD students in the Social Sciences and Humanities who have a record of academic excellence.
Established in the 17th century by the Metropolitan Petro Mohyla, the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy became a widely respected educational institution and a centre for the development of Ukraine's first national political, cultural and government elite. The Academy was closed in 1817 by the Russian Tsarist government. In 1992, after a 175-year hiatus, the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy was reinstated as a secular teaching institution, becoming a symbol of the rebirth of independent Ukraine. The Academy was granted the status of "National University" in 1994.

Widely regarded as the principal school in Ukraine for the Social Sciences and Humanities, the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy is also a leading centre for social and political research. Some 2,500 students from across Ukraine and abroad receive their education from leading Ukrainian and Western scholars. The Academy has become a centre for the promotion of democratic values in Ukraine, and its students are actively involved in the political life of the country. The Kyiv-Mohyla Academy is a bilingual institution: courses are taught in Ukrainian and English. Approximately 40 percent of the library holdings are in foreign languages, primarily in English. Exchange students can also take advantage of being in the capital of Ukraine, the site of major government and legislative bodies, non-governmental organizations, and the richest state libraries and archives.

The successful candidate will spend one semester (September-December or January-May) studying or doing research at the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. As a rule, CERES MA students will go on exchange in the fall term of their second year. CERES will provide some financial support on a case-by-case basis. Students pay their regular tuition to the University of Toronto; they do not pay any additional tuition or incidental fees to the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy.



To apply, please submit a Statement of Purpose (up to 750 words), which details your research interests and reasons to study at the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, two letters of reference from individuals who are qualified to judge your academic achievements, and graduate transcripts or an informal record of graduate grades. Letters of reference should be sent directly to Svitlana Frunchak. Kyiv-Mohyla Academy operates primarily in the Ukrainian language, and facility in Ukrainian will be treated as an asset in the review of applications.

Applications should be received in full at the below address by January 15. It is possible that some first semester grades may not be available as of January 15. If so, they should be submitted as soon as possible. Download the brochure here.
