Ground Report | New Delhi: Ukraine students admission Russia; Russia has offered help to international students who have returned from Ukraine. Educational institutions in Russia and Crimea are contacting students studying at medical schools in Ukraine.
According to The Times of India report, these institutions are also inviting counsellors present in India to come to Russia. Students do not have to pay any separate fees or entrance exams to enter Russian universities.
Similar assistance has also been proposed from Kazakhstan, Georgia, Armenia, Belarus and Poland. Even during the rescue work, 140 Indian students went to Moldova instead of returning home and are now enrolled in the medical university there.
A representative of the Government University of Moldova said: “Until last week, 140 Indians who came here directly from Ukraine have been admitted to our university. We will not accept money from them for this semester and now from the month of September they will be charged.”
These developments come at a time when questions remain about the integration of students who returned from Ukraine into the medical education system in India.
While some universities, including the Maharashtra Health Sciences University, have stepped up to offer online courses in the interim, clarity on the long-term process is still lacking.
“We are ready to offer assistance, organize online meetings with the parents of our students so that they can share their experiences with their students and their families. How many students do you have that really want to transfer to our university?” read an email from the Department of International Affairs at Grodno State Medical University in Belarus.’
Some of the universities have been asking students to share their documents including transcripts or logbooks with subjects studied and number of hours/credits to compare study plans, said Dr. Umesh Gurjar, who helps aspiring doctors who want to fly to international destinations.
