Student life

There are so many good reasons to engage with Nizhyn University, from academic to social and personal opportunities. The elected student representatives – together with the dedicated teams of the Students’ Council, Students’ Trade Union and Students’ Scientific Society staff – are there to work directly for every under-/postgraduate.

The University Students’ Council, which unites the councils of every faculty, is the student platform which aims at encouraging student participation and representation whilst striving to improve the overall student experience at the University. It is run for students and by students. It organises regular activities like Freshers’ Welcoming Concert, special events, traditional all-Ukrainian comedy competition “Gogol Cup” and choreographic festival “April Flourishes”, poetic nights, singing and music concerts.

Nizhyn University is also a home for the famous youth choir “Svitych”, the repeat winner of many national and European contests.

So get involved, and get the most out of your studentship.
