In order to optimize the educational process in the system of training foreign citizens and stateless persons for admission to universities in Ukraine in September 2010, the Department of Fundamental and Language Training was created, headed by Associate Professor Z.I. Kovalenko.
The department provides an educational process in the system of pre-university training of foreign citizens in biomedical, engineering and economic areas.
Each year the staff of the department is the first to meet foreign students who come to study in Ukraine and constantly accompany them throughout the course.
The main task of the preparatory faculty for foreign citizens is to prepare students for future studies in universities in Ukraine, designed to help them adapt to life in another country. Foreign students receive fundamental training in Russian, biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, and other disciplines.
Today the faculty of pre-university training of the NUPA is one of the most numerous in Ukraine. For a long-term period, more than 2 thousand students from 48 countries were trained in economic, humanitarian, medical – biological and engineering – technical areas.
