KMU Polish Campus


Kyiv Medical University (KMU) is TOP-ranked University in Ukraine and also a leader and pioneer of medical education. We have long ago chosen integration with the European Education Area as the vector of our development. That is why we are the only Ukrainian university that partially relocated our student and teaching community to Poland after the start of the full-scale invasion.

The purpose of establishing the KMU Polish Campus is to guarantee security and fulfil the right to receive a quality education of international level. Our community includes 4 000 students and residents, 900 employees and thousands of alumni.

KMU is fully integrated into the EU educational, scientific, and medical systems through its officially registered branch within the Republic of Poland (Bytom).  

Lots of governmental and non-governmental organizations, including the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development, Ministry of Education and Science of Poland and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland and Silesian local governments are showed their solidarity towards KMU Mission of Saving the Next Generation of Healthcare Workers being trained in Ukraine.  They strongly support us; have faith in us, in our mission, and in our values, so as you do!  

In this past years, the dedicated KMU team felt lots of pressure and responsibility because together with you, we were taking the path that no one had gone through before in such a short period of time and we were doing it during the time of war in our country.  But we had the aim to create all the conditions for each member of our community allowing everyone to look at the future more confidently, even being far from home.  We know that only here in Poland, through the KMU Polish Campus, we could create environment for safe learning and effective teaching for students and educators.  Who, if not Kyiv Medical University could achieve it!?

Poland is one of our most powerful partners and friends.  They were the first to come to help and they will remain with us till our Victory.  So, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank our Polish friends and partners from the state authorities, local governments, business, medical, teaching community for providing an opportunity for students being trained in Ukraine to have the meaning of life and opportunity to pursue the dream of becoming the Healthcare Worker of the New Generation.  

We would like to stress your attention that by successfully taking the responsibility of destinies of thousands of students, educators, doctors, we are expecting from our community members to diligently perform their responsibilities, as well.  As we are representing the first and the only Ukrainian university within the EU, in all aspects we must keep the bar really high and we have to present the best of us!  Although we are definite that we have much to offer to the EU!

Dedicated KMU team, through the investment of EBRD, is continuing to arrange for you here in Poland the state-of-the-art study and living facilities which comprise over 18 000 sqm.  We pride ourselves on providing an excellent teaching and learning experience for our students, being taught by leaders in their fields, with curriculums that have been inspired by the latest thinking, in the modern and comfortable facilities in the place without the war, which is fundamental to future success of our graduates.  

Stay tuned and the most exciting is awaiting us ahead!
