Au pair department
The au pair programme is a perfect choice for young Ukrainians who want to gain the invaluable experience of living abroad, to study foreign languages, to meet new cultures, learn about traditions and make new friends.
We currently actively send au pairs to the USA, Germany and the Netherlands. If you are interested to invite Ukrainian au pair candidates to your country, we invite you to get in touch with us!
Tell us about the market developments in the Ukraine?
It is hard to believe but behind the TV picture there is a huge market for international education!
Due to the recent political developments in our country more and more Ukrainians are thinking of the education and training programmes abroad. We, STUDY.UA Agency, do our best to meet the challenges of the current turbulent times and turn them into opportunities for further growth.
Our main marketing tool is the Education Exhibition in Kiev that we hold twice a year.
The Education Exhibition in February turned out to be a huge success with over 8,500 visitors over two days of the busy event. Our video of the event will change your perception of Ukrainian market forever!
The next fair will take place on 17 and 18 October 2015.
