Over the years, Ukraine, owing to its world-class education system, infrastructure and universities has emerged as one of the top 10 countries that attract maximum number of international students.The number of Indian students studying in Ukraine today stands at 5000 and counting as you read. Hitherto, Indian students opting for education programs in Ukraine were assisted by independent agents offering limited seats with best services.
Upon obtaining a Master's Degree or Specialist, a student may enter a university or a scientific institute to pursue postgraduate education. The first level of postgraduate education is aspirantura that usually results in the Kandydat Nauk degree (Candidate of Sciences). Candidates must pass three qualifying exams (in the field of specialty, in a foreign language of their choice and in philosophy), publish at least three scientific articles, write a dissertation and defend it. This degree is roughly equivalent to the Ph.D. in the United States.[13] After graduation a student may continue postgraduate education. This takes from two to four years of study indoctorantura. Significant scientific results must be obtained and published, and a new thesis written. This produces a Doctor Nauk degree (Doctor of Sciences), but the more typical way is working in a university or scientific institute with parallel preparation of a thesis. The average time between obtaining Kandidat and Doctor degrees is roughly 10 years, and most of new Doctors are 40 and
More years old. Only one of four Kandidats reaches this grade. Kandidat Nauk may keep the position Associate Professor in universities, or Researcher/Senior Researcher in scientific institutes. Doctor Nauk can hold position of full Professor, Head of Laboratory or equal/higher positions. The Ukrainian Ministry of Education and Science is considering changing the Soviet style Kandidat Nauk and Doctor Nauk degrees to Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor Habilitation, as has happened in several other post-Soviet countries
The Ukrainian educational system is organized into five levels: preschool, primary, secondary, higher and postgraduate education.
In 2010 a total of 56% of children aged one to six years old had the opportunity to attend preschool education, the Education and Science Ministry of Ukraine reported in August 2010
Schools receive 50% of their funding from the city budget and 50% from the national Government budget. The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine intends to give general education schools the option to independently manage the financial resources assigned from the state budget starting from January 1, 2010, 11 years of schooling are mandatory. As a rule, schooling begins at the age of 6, unless your birthday is on or after September 1 or on February 29. According to former Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian parliament), Volodymyr Lytvyn, the amount of budget financing for the sphere of education reached about 6% of Ukraine's GDP in November 2009
The economy of Ukraine is an emerging free market, with a gross domestic product that fell sharply for the first 10 years of its independence from the Soviet Union, then experienced rapid growth from 2000 until 2008. Formerly a major component of the economy of the Soviet Union, the country's economy experienced a deep recession during the 1990s, including hyperinflation and a drastic fall in economic output. In 1999, at the lowest point of the economic crisis, Ukraine's per capita GDP was less than half of the per capita GDP it achieved before independence. GDP growth was first registered in 2000, and continued for eight years.
Work rights during studies:
International students can work while studying in Ukraine, there are no restrictions of any kind. Everything will depend on you, if you can both study (have good grades) and still find some time to work (may be at evening/night time, etc.), it is possible.Of course the faster you learn the language, make friends, the higher are the chances to find a job. Also, if it is a university with a lot of foreign students, they probably can help you to find a job too or at least give you good advice.
Work rights for your spouse:

The Ukrainian government began to strictly regulate the stay of foreigners, especially those hired by local companies, back in 2009. Prior to that date, many foreigners simply ignored the local registration and customs rules with impunity. However, the Ukrainian “immigration revolution” began with the government’s strict application of the rules for applying for and receiving temporary residency status in Ukraine
