Russian Consul General Oleg Avdeev on Friday stated that Indian students who returned from Ukraine mid-degree can now complete their education in Russia. Thousands and millions of students who were pursuing medical courses in Ukraine had to defer their medical education midway and return to India when the Russia-Ukraine war broke out early this year. While some returned to Ukraine now, others are still at crossroads.
Russia has decided to provide opportunities for such students, the Russian Consul General Oleg Avdeev has said. “Indian students who left Ukraine can continue their education in Russia as the medical syllabus is almost the same (as Ukraine). They know the language of the people, as, in Ukraine, most of them speak Russian. They’re most welcome in Russia,” said Avdeev.
Avdeev further added that there has been an upward trend in the number of international students applying for higher education programmes/courses in the country.
Meanwhile, the students who returned from Ukraine during the war have had to even change their courses or streams to continue with their life. A lot of the students are also unable to return to Ukraine or any other country due to a financial crunch and are in a total mess.
