In order to live comfortably while you are in Ukraine, the student will need to have about 1200-1500$ per year available for living costs, above the cost of your tuition. The cost of living is cheaper, a lot more than in other European cities. It is difficult to give a precise figure because of differences in the student lifestyle. We are giving approximate costs below:
HOUSING: Prices in dormitories vary from 20 to 150 dollars depending on a city and quality of housing. You can learn more information about prices in the universities section.
FOOD: The food here in Ukraine is very cheap, for example for 1.5$ the student can buy 4 kg of potatoes or 4 kg of onions or 3 liters of milk. Milk products are very cheap as well.
BOOKS: The textbooks are usually provided by the University Library.
CLOTHING: A good pair of Jeans may cost 20-40$, the Shirts cost 10-20$, the T-Shirts cost 5-12$.
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: The students’ travel pass on government transport (Subway trains, electric buses) is issued by Universities and costs only around 5$ in a month depending on a city.
