Ukrainian Students Receive Support and Services From Universities in Bordering Nations

Keeping a close eye on the situation in the war-inflicted Ukraine, universities, educational institutions in bordering nations have extended support to Ukrainian refugees, including students.

According to reports, several universities in bordering countries have announced support in terms of helping students continue their education, even after they leave the country.

For instance, Budapest University of Technology has offered to welcome students from its partner universities, offering them “partial transfer, credit recognition and mentoring”. Meanwhile, The Slovak University of Technology has offered its facilities to accommodate Ukrainian citizens, while working towards simplifying the process and conditions needed to enrol students from the war-afflicted areas. The Technical University of Moldova has similarly announced accommodation and assistance for refugees as well.

Oleksandr Shtokvytch, head of Secretariat at the Open Society University Network, commented that with students already facing disruption with Covid-19, and now with universities closed due to martial law, opportunities to continue and resume education online and/or in-person along with quick credit recognition response and easy transfer to international universities is now crucial.

Similarly, academic institutions in Western Europe have reached out to help fleeing students, with the University of Zurich announcing its support to help students and researchers, further advising them to connect with Scholars at Risk, an academic network.

Seeing the efforts being poured into assisting students fleeing Ukraine, Scholars at Risk, commended the different organisations. Meanwhile, another organisation, OSUN that runs a Threatened Scholars Integration Initiative, highlighted its efforts in “developing a number of urgent measures” in support of Ukrainian students and academics.

Shtokvytch, speaking to the media, urged the EU and all organisations in the EU to simplify the requirements for student, residence and work permit visas, along with compiling and offering relevant information regarding tuition-free study opportunities in the EU as well as different scholarship opportunities available to Ukrainian students.

Meanwhile, suggesting an app to link Ukrainian students and academics with universities and institutions that have lent their support, Uwe Brandenburg, Founder and Managing Partner at Global Impact, stated that the move will make the process of searching of help “more efficient and impactful”.
