Ammon News – The Higher Education Ministry said on Saturday that it has been monitoring the situation of Jordanian students at Ukrainian universities since the start of the conflict in the country in coordination with the Foreign Ministry.
Higher Education Ministry spokesperson Mohannad Khatib said the ministry has launched an electronic platform for such students to register their academic details, noting that there are around 400 students registered on the platform, the vast majority of which study medicine and dentistry. , Petra, reported.
According to the ministry, lists of these students, including their majors and the universities in Ukraine where they are studying, have been sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which will then contact the relevant Ukrainian authorities to obtain documents proving that they were students in these establishments. .
Khatib said the Ministry of Higher Education’s Non-Jordanian Certificates Equivalence Committee has exempted these students from the condition of having to complete 50% of the program at their home university before continuing their studies in the Kingdom.
Jordanian students returning from Ukrainian institutions have the option of continuing their education through online learning platforms as long as their Ukrainian universities allow it, according to the ministry.
Hungary and Russia, for example, have announced the possibility of receiving Ukrainian university students and letting them finish where they left off, offering them special facilities in terms of payment of university fees, the ministry added.
In terms of allowing these students to continue their studies in Jordanian universities, the ministry said that this option is open and encouraged them to visit the universities where they choose to continue their studies.
Admission to local universities, however, will be subject to the regulations and requirements of those institutions, according to the ministry.
