CHILDREN FROM TOT WILL BE ABLE TO PASS EIT FOR ADMISSION TO ALL UNIVERSITIES OF UKRAINE
Corresponding amendments to the Law of Ukraine "On Higher Education" will be proposed for parliamentary vote.
To date, it is optional to pass EIT only in the higher education institutions, on the basis of which the educational centres "Crimea-Ukraine" and "Donbas-Ukraine" are operating, defined by the Ministry of Education and Science. According to the proposed amendments, such simplified procedure for admission will apply to all Ukrainian universities.
In addition, it is planned to introduce the possibility for children from the temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts of Ukraine to study in Ukrainian higher education institutions for free, through the state order within the quotas, as currently only applicants from the temporarily occupied Crimean Peninsula have such possibility.
“It is our duty to provide children from the territories of Ukraine temporarily occupied by Russia with an opportunity to receive quality education and make this process as convenient as possible. It is also important that applicants from the temporarily occupied territories do not need to have a Ukrainian passport to enter; it is enough to have a birth certificate. And applicants who do not have a Ukrainian certification of education can get it through the educational centre, which will send them to school at the educational centre to take two state final attestation exams: Ukrainian language and history of Ukraine. Moreover, they will need to pass one entrance exam, which is set by the higher education institution,” noted in the Ministry for Reintegration.
Let us recall, that since June 9, 2020 the educational centres "Donbas-Ukraine" and "Crimea-Ukraine" have begun to operate. Applicants from the temporarily occupied territories can enter Ukrainian universities without an external independent testing through the centres.
This year, applicants from the temporarily occupied territories will be able to enter the Ukrainian higher education institutions under a simplified procedure without passing the external independent testing. Under this procedure, they will be able to enter more than 100 educational institutions, on the basis of which the educational centres "Crimea-Ukraine" and "Donbas-Ukraine" are operating.
