Together for Ukraine
The Kharkiv School of Architecture (KhSA) is a private university that offers undergraduate (BA) and graduate (MA) qualifications in architecture and urban planning, the first private school to do so in Ukraine. Founded in 2017 alongside its affiliated NGO “Architectural Education”, it was established to provide globally informed and locally relevant knowledge on the build environment to students, aiming to help shape Ukraine’s cities for the future, at a time when Ukraine’s broader educational process was being restructured and its cities in need of rethinking. It uses an internationally recognised format of studio teaching, seminars and visiting practitioners to provide students with transferable European qualifications, while engaging with a network of professional supporters and collaborators who bring a rich array of contributions to the discourse around Ukraine’s human habitats.
Due to the war in Ukraine, The Kharkiv School of Architecture was forced to relocate from Kharkiv. In cooperation with our partners, the Educational Equality Institute provides crucial support to The Kharkiv School of Architecture by supplying the resources needed to continue their work and admit new students.
“Cooperation with The Educational Equality Institute will help us to resume full-fledged training as soon as possible in these circumstances. We are very grateful and look forward to working with you.” says Educational Programs Coordinator of the Kharkiv School of Architecture, Yelyzaveta Krasnianyk
