Ukraine returnee students meet Education Minister, seek help for admission



Around 100 of the students met Minister of Education  Dharmendra Pradhan  during his visit to the Capital City and submitted a memorandum to him seeking admission to medical colleges in India. The students stated that they have been facing issues getting admission in India since their return.

In the memorandum, the students said that medical fees and cost of living in Poland, Romania, Hungary, and Czech Republic are more than double of that in Ukraine.  “The quality of medical education in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan is not good. In the European countries, we will again have to learn the local language and affording the medical fees is next to impossible now having already spent a lot of money in Ukraine,” they said in the memorandum.
Doctors’ body Indian Medical Association (IMA) had earlier recommended the accommodation of all medical students evacuated from Ukraine in medical schools in India.
In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, IMA had expressed concern regarding the future of Indian students who are pursuing a medical degree in Ukraine.
