Ștefan cel Mare University of Suceava (USV) is one of the fastest rising universities in the Eastern European region providing higher education of high quality standards at a relatively low cost. It is one of the very few universities in this region with a comprehensive curriculum including more than 100 programs at undergraduate, master, doctoral and post-doctoral level from all five faculty areas (Arts & Humanities,Engineering & IT, Life Sciences, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences). A unique educational outpost that goes back nearly half a century, USV’s transnational platform is aimed at discovering, preserving and disseminating knowledge while promoting basic European principles, such as unity through diversity, in an area where the credibility and identity of the European Union needs to be strengthened and further increased.
Located in the beautiful and multicultural land of Bukovina, USV is surrounded by the greatest density of UNESCO monuments from this part of Europe, precious art monuments, great spiritual life and rich folklore traditions offering its students great opportunities for extra-curriculum activities.
What also stands out is USV’s ability to sustain regional development at national level within the North-Eastern area, as well as at transnational level through Ukraine and Republic of Moldova close partnerships.
USV is a Romanian institution of higher education situated at the confluence of important European
cultures and civilizations. Its mission is to preserve and foster cultural diversity, to strengthen the relations with the Romanians across the border by encouraging new bilateral agreements and partnerships with universities from the European Union, as well as with non-EU institutions of higher education from Eastern Europe.
