List of Universities Helping Ukrainian Students

Many universities have expressed willingness to offer support to Ukrainians working and studying abroad as well as to students and academics who have already fled the country. The support is mainly academic, financial, legal advice.

When Russia launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24, the education sector worldwide acted quickly, offering support to Ukrainian universities, students, educators, and scholars, affected by the war in their country.

Before the war began, Ukraine was itself a favored study destination among international students. According to data gathered by the education search platform Erudera, there were 80,470 international students in Ukraine in 2019.

With days passing by, more universities, student organizations, and alumni, as well as educational institutions, are coming together to ensure that Ukrainian students and staff can manage to flee the country and continue education in other countries in the world.

The list below shows universities worldwide that are helping Ukrainian students and educators. The type of help these universities are offering is mainly academic support, counseling services, free tuition, meals, and more.

Data by the Institute of International Education (IIE) indicate that more than 6,500 Ukrainian and Russian students attended college and grad school in the United States during the last academic year.
