Supporting refugee learners from Ukraine in higher education in Europe 2022

06 July 2022

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has posed a serious threat to the lives of millions of people, many of whom have been forced to flee their home and search for protection in neighbouring European countries. The host countries are now called upon to respond to this situation by providing refugees from Ukraine with support measures to facilitate their rapid and successful integration in the new society. Higher education is a critical sector in this response, as the war has had a major impact on higher education staff and students from Ukraine.

This short report focuses on key policies and measures, developed by top-level education authorities across Europe, aiming to assist higher education institutions (HEIs) in integrating refugee learners from Ukraine. These include recent policies and measures targeting specifically Ukrainian refugee learners as well as non-Ukrainian learners who were studying in a Ukrainian HEI at the time of the Russian invasion. The report builds partly on the findings of previous Eurydice reports on higher education, such as the ‘Bologna Process Implementation Report (2020)’ and ‘Integrating asylum seekers and refugees into Higher Education in Europe: National policies and measures (2019)’. It provides up-to-date information gathered through a survey of the countries that are part of the Eurydice Network (except for Hungary and Serbia). The reference year is the 2021/2022 school year.
