International students told about their studies in IFNTUOG

The main task of the Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical University of Oil and Gas is to provide with high quality educational services both Ukrainians and students from other countries, because almost every 30 student of the university is a foreigner.  Therefore, the main duty of IFNTUOG staff is to show maximum professionalism so that students coming from other countries feel comfortable.

Our university has modern facilities and equipment for training qualified professionals of international recognition. Technologically advanced laboratories operates in IFNTUOG, such as “SIEMENS” hardware; cement slurries; automated control and technical telecommunication systems “Phoenix-Contact”;  “Smart Technologies”; “Internet of things” and also “IT Academy”.

2The university teachers help international students to adapt in a new country, better understand its citizens, learn the Ukrainian language faster through various events (excursions, evening parties, national celebrations), which they organize. International students always participate in amateur activities, all-Ukrainian competitions, flash mobs, research and cultural work not only of the university, but also of the city and the region.  For example, Franque Francisco Mpuati Ranque, a student from Angola won a third place in the contest among international students for the best photo, video or slogan about studies in Ukraine, jointly organized by MES of Ukraine and the Ukrainian State Center for International Education. A citizen of Congo, M’boro Bernard-Christian has repeatedly won all-Ukrainian dance competitions and we are proud of Bahi Gueye Gildas from Côte d’Ivoire, winner in running.
