Ammon News - The Ministry of Higher Education on Saturday stated that it has been following up on 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 that the ministry launched an e-platform for these students to register their academic information, noting that there are around 400 students registered on the platform, the vast majority of whom study medicine and dentistry, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

According to the ministry, lists of these students, including their majors and the universities in Ukraine where they study, have been sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which will then contact the relevant Ukrainian authorities to obtain documents proving they were students at these institutions.

Khatib said that the Non-Jordanian Certificate Equivalency Committee of the Ministry of Higher Education exempted these students from the condition of having to finish 50 per cent of the curriculum at their home universities before continuing their education in the Kingdom.

Jordanian students returning from Ukrainian institutions have the option of continuing their education through e-learning platforms as long as their Ukrainian universities allow it, according to the ministry.

Hungary and Russia, for example, announced the possibility of receiving Ukrainian university students and letting them finish where they stopped, with offering them special facilities in terms of paying university fees, the ministry added.

In terms of permitting these students to continue their education at Jordanian universities, the ministry stated 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 in place at these institutions, according to the ministry.
