Thanks to the leadership of the university, in 2013, the conditions for post-graduate students were significantly improved, a new classroom of 2602 was built, equipped with modern multimedia technology and transcripts of speakers. All this allowed post-graduates to significantly improve their learning conditions and move to the first classroom shift.

For the fifth year in a row, the Postgraduate and Doctoral Department has switched to electronic system of knowledge evaluation by Socrates' internal system, the teacher, when presenting the final evaluation for the exam is guided by two criteria: the results of the current control and the number of points which the postgraduate received at the exam (credit) based on the results of computer testing. This system is transparent and accessible because every graduate student, regardless of location, has access to it, which significantly reduces the amount of classroom workload for the graduate student and the teacher.
The greatest pride of VNAU is postgraduate students - representatives of the agrarian elite of Ukraine, the hope and glory of the hardworking Ukrainian people. They are capable of learning, talented in creativity, persistent in sports, progressive in the scientific field, active in the life of the university and the region, their successes are sincerely happy, we are proud of them.
