Ukrainian College students

Ukrainian College students will be getting free online study from some universities in the US. While Russian forces’ bombs, missiles, and rockets may have displaced thousands of Ukrainian college students, making it impossible for them to attend classes in their home country, the University of Miami is providing those students with a safe and secure way to continue their academic careers—in a virtual classroom setting.

Beginning with the Summer 2022 session, which begins May 16 and runs through the 2022-23 academic year, qualifying undergraduate and graduate students from Ukrainian schools will be able to study courses at the University of Miami online and tuition-free.

“The war in Ukraine has exacted a devastating and terrible toll, forcing millions of Ukrainian citizens to flee their country, many of whom are college students,” said Jeffrey Duerk, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. “Higher education has a duty to support students affected by conflict in their home countries. Offering eligible Ukrainian College students, wherever they may be, the opportunity to take online courses until their home institutions are operational is the right thing to do.”

Ukrainian students will enroll as visiting exchange students and take virtual classes taught by University of Miami faculty, sharing classrooms with University of Miami students and getting grades in each subject for which they enroll.

Students must complete an online application through the Study Abroad Office, and once completed, they will get comprehensive instructions from the University through email.

More than 50 online courses are now accessible in four colleges and schools: the College of Arts and Sciences, the Frost School of Music, the Miller School of Medicine, and the School of Communication. However, according to Patty Murphy, assistant provost for university accreditation, that number is projected to rise.

The University of Miami joins a growing number of higher education institutions that are stepping forward to help Ukrainian college students whose lives have been upended by the conflict.

As of May 11, Ukraine’s Ministry of Education and Science said that the bombing and shelling had damaged over 1,600 educational establishments across the nation, with 126 of them destroyed.
