What is it like to live in Kiev? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

It's nice to live in kiev especially if you wanna to study here, but the big problem that every student is facing it's the apartment because it's very hard to find one near to the university and cheap in the same time.
And no i don't recommend to come for a visit or a vacation to kiev.

What is the student lifestyle like in Kiev?

It's like you wake up everyday at 7 am like any country  so there is no difference between ukraine and other countries,and in ukraine everything you should do it by yourself and this thing i liked because it gives for the student the responsibility about things.

How much does it cost to live in Kiev?

If you want to live luxury you should have every month like 600 or 700 dollars and if you want to live like the others 450 or 400 is enough because with this money you should pay for a place you will stay in like apartment or hostel and there is a money for your food and your stuff and it's around 200 or 250 dollars.

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Kiev? Is there any advice you can give?

Yes, it's very hard because it's impossible to find an apartment near from your university and here they don't give their apartment to an arabic person because the arabs are ruining everything in the apartment when they left.

What is the food like? What are your favourite dishes?

It's normal because i didn't ate anything from the Ukrainian food until now because i don't know where could i find a restaurant for ukrainian food,my favourite dish in ukraine is chicken donner wrap it's definitely delicious dish to have.

What places would you recommend visiting in Kiev?

Shuliavska,nyvky

Is the nightlife good in Kiev? Where is good to go?

I don't know because i don't go out in th night time.

What advice would you give future students heading to Kiev?

Be careful when you come here don't trust anyone even your agent,watch yourself and study hard, but if you want a real advice from me don't come to ukraine go to Europe because your future will be better in there and im going there next year
