6 free offline courses that will allow Ukrainians to obtain the specialty of IT specialist
Where to get free IT education
Today, many Ukrainians are thinking about retraining as IT specialists. This is perhaps the only industry that has not suffered from the devaluation of the hryvnia and the economic crisis. Salaries of programmers are pegged to the dollar, and the number of vacancies for them is only growing. However, studying for an IT specialist is expensive – given the current situation in the country, for most it is a serious blow to the pocket. Coursera is also not suitable for everyone – some people do not absorb information online. Below are six free offline courses for those who cannot study online.

Also in the coming weeks, the program is scheduled to start in Dnepropetrovsk, Odessa and Lviv. Bionic University The initiative is funded by the Vasily Khmelnitsky Charitable Foundation "Ways to the Future", so training in most programs is free. However, not everyone can become a student of the courses – those who wish are tested and selected by an interview with Bionic University experts. The university is located in Kiev on the territory of the "Kyiv-Mohyla Academy" and offers a wide range of courses and programs. Here you can learn software development, management skills and entrepreneurial knowledge. And on the basis of Bionic University there is a Coursera hub, where you can consolidate offline knowledge gained via the Internet with the support of competent teachers. SoftServe IT-Academy Many IT companies are also ready to train people for free to replenish their staff with quality and loyal professionals. Ukrainian software company SoftServe has launched a free academy aimed at senior students of technical specialties and people with little experience on the basis of its representative offices in Lviv, Dnipropetrovsk, Rivne, Chernivtsi, Ivano-Frankivsk and Kyiv. successfully pass the competitive selection, so it is desirable to have a basic knowledge of the chosen discipline and a good level of English.

The president says he will not sign the budget if it provides for the abolition of scholarships
Poroshenko against the abolition of scholarships
The President states that he will not sign the Law on the State Budget if it provides for the abolition of student scholarships. Poroshenko said this during his annual Address to the Verkhovna Rada "On the internal and external situation of Ukraine in 2016."
"I will not miss the budget for next year, which will be the abolition of scholarships, the abolition of public funding for master’s studies and other experiments," said the President of Ukraine.
As you know, the Ministry of Finance proposed to change the approach to the payment of scholarships, referring to the experience of other European countries, where not all students receive scholarships.

Egor Stadny: Ukrainian realities of scholarship accrual
When Ukrainian education becomes like in Europe, and students’ scholarships provide them with an opportunity to live more or less normally, as well as the conservatism of the university environment, which hinders industry reform, FaceNews was told by Egor Stadny, a freelance adviser to the Minister of Education and Science. .When will there be education of the European model and European level in Ukraine? Who and what should do this? Who and what is a question, I think, for hours of conversation. But as soon as we can take responsibility and we will have effective communication between the Ministry of Education and the industry … Because there is a huge problem, in my opinion, that people a) do not understand the purpose, b) do not understand, how tools are adjusted for this purpose. Students with scholarships see savings. Teachers of all compulsory subjects see an attempt to reduce them. That is, we have such a misunderstanding in many matters. I think that the ministry and its public relations service need to significantly reconsider their policy of informing the public and all participants in the process of what the intentions are and what is the sequence of using certain tools to implement these intentions. When will our scholarships meet the subsistence level? According to the norm of the new law, academic scholarships for a minimum of two thirds and a maximum of three quarters of state employees at the university – and, in fact, in a group – must be awarded according to the rating. The minimum is the subsistence level, such a tautology comes out. And there are social scholarships that are counted separately.
