The article is devoted to the results of theoretical and empirical research aimed at the analysis and refinement of the concept of "ethnic tolerance", revealing its internal and external determinants and describing the approaches of different authors to the interpretation of this phenomenon. The article presents a study of manifestations’ peculiarities of ethnic tolerance in multicultural surrounding of ISUH students, as well as its prospects for the development of students’ psychology. The ethnic structure of Ukrainian Danube region is caused by the interaction of different ethnic groups (Bulgarians, Gagauz, Ukrainians, Russians, Armenians, Jews and others), which requires tolerant attitude to other nationalities.
