Learning Ukrainian in the UK

University College London

At undergraduate level, the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) offers degrees in Ukrainian and East European Studies, and Ukrainian and another European language (the Modern Languages degree), for example French and Ukrainian. The core modules taken as part of these degrees include Ukrainian Level 1, Ukrainian Level 2, Ukrainian Level 3, Ukrainian Culture and Text, and The Making of Modern Ukraine.

The above courses are also available as core or optional modules of other UCL degree programmes in which Ukrainian can be studied, for example Politics, Sociology and East European Studies, Economics and Business with East European Studies, History, Politics and Economics, European Social and Political Studies, Russian with an East European Language, or Mathematics with Modern Languages.

Other courses relating wholly or partly to Ukraine which may be studied as part of some of the above degrees include Literature and Memory and Crossroads of Culture: Language and Identity in the Literatures of Ukraine from Crimea to the Shtetls.

Additionally, as part of most UCL degrees, subject to approval from the home department, Ukrainian may be taken as an off-track module at three levels: Ukrainian A, Ukrainian B, Ukrainian C.

At postgraduate level, Ukrainian can be taken as a language component of various taught M.A. and M.Res degree programmes at SSEES.
