A Page from Karazin University History: First Student Enrollment


V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University is the oldest university in Eastern Ukraine. It opened its doors for students in 1805. This event was very important not only for our country, but also for all the cultural and educational space of Eastern Europe.

The very first student enrollment was a competitive one, all the places were filled. And it was then that an institute for "self-paying" students (those who paid for their studies themselves) was created. There also were free attendees who only attended particular lectures. The total of 60 students were enrolled in the first year in 1805.

The first University students were natives of Sloboda Ukraine, as well as foreign citizens (from the Austrian and German territories). Some of them represented the most distinguished families of Sloboda Ukraine (the Osypovs, the Perekhrestovs, the Shydlovskys, and others). For some of them, studying and working at Kharkiv University became a family tradition. In particular, all the members of the Slavinsky family were students, who worked at Karazin University after graduation.
