How to keep studying during the Ukraine situation
You can learn more about the Ukraine emergency here.
According to the latest available data, it is estimated that 83% of Ukrainian youth between the ages of 18-24 were enrolled in higher education (UIS, 2014). Since the start of the war, academic institutions in Ukraine have been shut down. Many in the higher education community have already mobilized in response to the Ukraine situation – opening dormitories as temporary housing, creating scholarship places for refugee students, delivering language classes and more.
