Combining over 35 schools and departments, Kharkov National University is one of the oldest and highly reputable education institutions in Ukraine. Our program targets students who have gained a strong background in applied mathematics at the School of Mechanics and Mathematics. Biostatistics also requires knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry and clinical trials; for these courses, we’ve invited professors from the university’s School of Medicine. We have also invited instructors from the School of Foreign Languages to improve students’ English language proficiency.
