In a significant relief to Indian students, the universities in Poland may consider giving admissions to the Indian students enabling them to finish their studies. The Indian students currently studying in Ukrainian universities face uncertainties over their future as universities are shut in the war-torn country, affecting their studies.
Interacting with 600 Indian students at Hotel Prezydenckie in Rzeszow, Poland, Union Minister Vijay Kumar Singh said, “If your course is not complete, all people I met in Poland said they would take responsibility for the education of all students who were in Ukraine.
Taking to Twitter, the Union Minister said, “Poland and India share centuries of friendship and cordial relations which have brought our people together. I am happy to share with you that Polish universities will be opening their doors to our students from Ukraine so that they can finish their studies. Jai Hind!”
