System of education

System of Education Diagram
Ukrainian educational system is under reformation. When the Law of Ukraine “On Higher Education” No. 1556-VII dated July 01, 2014 was adopted, the changes of higher education structure took place. Education and qualification levels of Junior Specialist and Specialist are supposed to be gradually removed from the structure; it also relates to the Candidate of Science (Kandydat Nauk) research degree.According to the admission requirements of higher educational institutions (HEIs) in 2017 (Decree of Ministry of Science and Education No. 1236 dated October 13, 2016), the HEIs of Ukraine are enabled to carry out admission for Junior Specialist program. The admission for this program is extended till 2019. The last admission for Specialist training program was conducted in 2016. The Candidate of Science study is being continued within designated term, in case it had begun till the adoption of the above-mentioned law. Consequently, education and qualification levels of Junior Specialist, Specialist along with Candidate of Science degree are reserved, at the moment, in the higher education structure, and may be considered as levels/degrees of transitional period.

Due to Law of Ukraine “On Higher Education” there exists such correlation between previous and actual educational degrees in Ukraine as:

  • Junior Specialist diploma equals to Junior Bachelor diploma;
  • Specialist diploma equals to Master diploma;
  • Candidate of Science diploma equals to PhD diploma.

It is expected that there will be changes regarding laws on secondary and vocational education.
