Ukraine/ 8.3 Arts and cultural education  

8.3.1 Institutional overview

According to amendments to the Law on Education, culture and art institutions of higher education will remain in the basic system of educational establishments of culture, not moving under the competence of the Ministry of Education.

In 2016, there were 10 state-owned institutes of higher education of I-IV level of accreditation, 54 communal colleges of I-III level of accreditation and 7 specialised technical boarding schools where about 29 000 students studied in 26 areas.

Primary arts education is available at 1 473 art schools, all of which are financed from local budgets and by fees. 344 000 pupils are enrolled and are taught by about 40 000 teachers.

11 higher education establishments, including the National Academy of Music, the National Academy of Arts and Architecture, four State Conservatories, the Theatre, Film and TV Institute, the University of Culture, and National Academy for Chief Managers in Culture and Art provide post-graduate courses, and 4 provide doctorate courses.

3 studios for preparing musicians, singers and dancers operate in Kyiv at well-known art groups – National Chapel of Bandura-Players, National Folk Choir and National Academic Dance Ensemble.

Recently, especially in the regions, e-facilities found in libraries are being actively used to provide students with, on the one hand, computer skills and on the other hand, up to date information during special study sessions in libraries. In several libraries, in the capital and in regional centres, like Dnipro, Khmelnytsky, and Lviv, co-working spaces were created providing training courses and workshops.
