The International Faculty of the Volodymyr Dahl East Ukrainian National University has celebrated the Final Grand Feast for foreign and Ukrainian students.“Let me on behalf of all the administration of the University congratulate you with the graduation from our university” – addressed vice-rector on scientific and educational work Prof. V.Dyadychev to the graduators. – You should bring the name of Dahl Student to the country where you’ll live and work with the proud. Don’t forget your teachers, who gave you knowledge, who you communicate with during all your stay here, and students. We wish you much health and happiness and success!”
The soloist of the Group for modern pop songs “Svitanok Ukrainy” Isabel Malanga has presented several Ukrainian songs, and graduator James Lee sang in English. The real "flavor" of the evening was songs in native languages performed by students and graduates. Rustem Radzhepov, Maya Amarkupova and soloist of the vocal ensemble "Echo" Inga Chohadze have shared their talents. Also, Darya Gvozdetsky has presented the song and Peter Odzhyo charmed the audience playing the saxophone.
The training of foreign students at Dahl University (at that time - Voroshilovgrad Engineering Institute) has been launched in 1973. The first students were 18 people from Poland. During the short time students’ geography has expanded considerably, and in 1985, the institute enrolled 380 students from 39 countries worldwide. In 1991 the Institute opened a preparatory department for foreign citizens, there the students were trained to entry the universities for engineering, medical and humanitarian areas. In 1998 the Preparatory Center for Ukrainian and foreign citizens was opened, which was later renamed to the International Centre for Undergraduate Education.
Nowadays International Faculty has been created in 2010. It contains 5 chairs. The training is going on in English, Russian and Ukrainian.
