Indian Students from Ukraine Reluctant to Study in Russia, Hungary

Indian students attending online classes in war-hit Ukrainian universities have received offers to study in Russia and Hungary. Around 16,000 students study in Russia and now the country has put forward efforts to invite the Ukraine-returnee students to study there. Hungarian foreign minister Péter Szijjártó has also confirmed that Hungary is open to medical students if they are willing to study there.

Students, though delighted by the offers, wish to continue their studies in Ukraine. They are waiting for the matters to resolve. The offers seem lucrative but come with their own sets of difficulties. The students will have to go through another set of processes to get admitted to these universities. Therefore, they are delaying the decisions by a few months.

Indian medical colleges have not made their decisions known if they will allow conducting practical classes despite the continuous insistence of Ukrainian authorities on the same. The Ukrainian university professors are teaching amidst the continuous shelling and war conditions. 

The Indian government is yet to come to a conclusion on waiving loans of the students. The loan amount is INR 121.61 crores as of December 31, 2021. Till the situation stabilises, the consequences cannot be analysed. It will be a great relief to them if they get an interest relief on the loans.
