Years later, the Institute was certified for training bachelor’s degree holders. The number of students has increased tenfold. And in 2011, the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary in Ukraine was opened on the territory of the educational institution. The educational complex of the Ukrainian Humanities Institute and the Theological Seminary was named the Ukrainian Adventist Center for Higher Education (UACE).
