Do you dream of getting another specialty but do not know how to combine this venture with your studies, work or personal life? I also faced the problem, but the solution turned out to be easier than one might think. Having discovered all the benefits of studying at the Donetsk National University-based Center for Continuous Education, i applied for entry without any hesitation. In my case, training in the journalism and media communications division has become an opportunity to acquire another profession without sacrificing work and family. From that moment on, I never regretted the choice I made.

The laboratory employs real professionals, and the administration always respects all the requests and suggestions of students. The world of journalism has become closer than ever, because most of the professors are practicing journalists who are not aware of all the pros and cons of the profession.

The decision to get an additional education is an adult decision that can change your life! You will see the world around filled with new colors! I’ve tested it on myself!

How I became a journalist

One little girl was a big dreamer… And dreams turned into stories, works. The world of words was for her like a jungle, through which she had to get through, wielding a ballpoint pen like a sword.

As time passed, the little girl who then became an adult girl, was assured by many people that writing articles was complete nonsense, and she agreed trustingly.

But one occasion changed her life. The train, two wonderful philology teachers who convinced her that having a related profession “for the soul” – is a smart decision.

That’s how I ended up here in the journalism and media communications division of the DonNU Continuous Education Center. And classes here are also unique, every one of them is a completely new discovery of something. And the teachers … It’s good that journalism has a lot of very proficient mentors who can fill you in on everything.

If you think like what’s amusing one can come up with during classes? Well, lectures and seminars are almost the same every time. No, our teachers are breaking stereotypes. We have a lecture on a sunny day, and if it’s a seminar, then we have an interview with a jewelry designer. And if the Ukrainian language class is held in a mass media department, then we can hear lots of interesting stories from which you always get goosebumps or so much fun that you do not notice that you already have to go home …

The world of a word is a miracle which one will reveal to you here. You will also be taught how to deal with it properly as well as how to become a true master of it.

When you go to college after school and start your education there, you definitely want to try to fulfill the ideas shared by teachers here. However, the number of subjects is so extensive and you have the opportunity to get a training practice in only one of them at the end of the year.

In the department of journalism and medical communications of the Laboratory for Continuous Education of DonNU everything is different – your skills will be tested from the first classes. We are not only taught to write notes, reports, interviews and articles, they also provide you with the opportunity to publish your work in a newspaper. Excursions to radio and television companies give an idea of how journalists, editors, operators, directors work

But that’s not all. If you have suddenly realized that being at the scene of a fire accident is not for you, that’s no problem. Big companies need talented PR workers, press staff, and journalists working for official websites.

If you are interested in one of the specialties outlined above, our Laboratory for Continuous Education will suit you perfectly.

After two years of study at the DonNU Center for Continuous Education in the department of translation, I can confidently claim that I have acquired all the necessary knowledge to perform high quality and professional translation of texts in various subjects and areas. I would like to express my gratitude to all the teachers for their high professionalism and responsiveness. They were always ready to help and answer questions of my interest at any time. Lectures and seminars were always conducted in an interesting manner using audio and video materials, which made it possible to absorb the material better from the very beginning and without any difficulty. Yes, in just two years I received not only positive emotions, but also invaluable knowledge!

Hello everyone!

I want to share my impressions of studying at DonNU Center for Continuous Education.

I happened to come here by accident – just intended to distract my brain from work. A good friend of mine advised me to come here. I liked the conditions. On admission, you pass an introductory interview to determine your current level of knowledge, and what I liked the most is that it was taken into account during the classes! To those who needed it (and I was one of them), teachers provided additional explanations of the material in an unobtrusive form, if desired – additional tasks of a transitional level of complexity. Teachers are very communicative and friendly.

The employees of the Center created a very friendly atmosphere here. My most sincere, warmest feedback about the teachers: thank you for your creativity and love to your subjects and students. Teachers are constantly developing their ways of conducting classes in accordance with the requirements of today! A great deal of information is provided in a non-casual game format. I am experiencing my student life again: constant brainstorming and cheerful courage. I also want to point out one more fact: besides the teachers, one of the undeniable advantages of the center is its students. Amazingly, the Center brought together unique people – any discussion with them turns out to be a source of new information and unexpected discoveries.

I regard the Continuous Education Center as a powerful and positive institution which cheered me up every time and gave me motivation to study more.

You can learn English easily and with pleasure!
