Saint Andrew's Cathedral in Kiev

"During my semester, I had an amazing time visiting Moscow and St. Petersburg, and later Kyiv and Lviv. And living in Kharkiv, the second-largest city in Ukraine after the capital of Kyiv, is perfect in that there are many international students (I met some from Germany, Nigeria, Iraq, and Mexico) as well as thousands of friendly locals. The EESA staff are very kind and helpful. They will go to great lengths to make sure that your stay in Eastern Europe is as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. If you have any connection to Russian or Ukrainian culture, this is without a question the study abroad program for you. And if you don't, you will still return home with fantastic memories and a new appreciation of this part of the world."

    Update about Safety in Ukraine

    Just a couple of days ago, EESA sent an email regarding student safety in Ukraine. Within only 24 hours, Putin received parliamentary permission to use Russian troops in Ukraine. EESA made a decision to evacuate the students within 48 hours. At this point, 2014 summer and fall programs are set to take place as scheduled and we are hopeful that the international community, Ukraine and Russia can seek a peaceful resolution to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
