The recognised higher education institutions are supervised by an Academic Council of university governors. Individual institutions are led by a rector. In the case of private institutions, supervision is the responsibility of the owners/founders. It is also common practice for a Board of Supervisors to be appointed.

Ukrainian higher education has a unitary system in which the distinction between university education and higher professional education is often not clear. Some study programmes contain elements of both higher professional education and university education. An example is the primary education teacher training offered at universities.

The language of education is officially Ukrainian, although some programmes also are offered in Russian or English for foreign students.

The academic year runs from 1 September to the end of June.
