Zaporozhye, Ukraine

The history of Zaporozhye State University (ZSU) dates back to a pedagogical institution which was founded in Alexandrovsk (the former name of Zaporozhye) at the end of the XIX century. A gymnasium was founded in one of its buildings in 1897. The teaching system was later transformed into three-year pedagogical courses (1921), and in 1930 an institute of public education was set up which was then reorganised into the state pedagogical institute in 1933.

ZSU is one of the most rapidly growing young universities in the Ukraine and has excellent prospects for the future.
