Ukraine digital: Ensuring academic success in times of crisis

Frau an Laptop

The war against Ukraine has had a devastating impact on the infrastructure of the Ukrainian education and higher education system. Thus, the programme focuses on the fast implementation of virtual courses. German higher education institutions are supported to enable their Ukrainian partner institutions in maintaining their virtual study programmes. In this way, students and scientists/researchers in and from Ukraine have the prospect of completing their studies despite the limitations caused by the war.


"Ukraine digital " supports Ukrainian higher education institutions in maintaining, implementing, and offering their virtual courses. Consequently, Ukrainian students have the prospect of completing their studies despite the limitations caused by the war. At the same time, German higher education institutions offer a virtual platform for Ukrainian refugee students so they can continue and complete their current studies in Ukraine virtually.

Involving Ukrainian lecturers of higher education institutions who are in Germany or other European countries enables them to continue teaching virtually at their home institutions. Therefore, lessons can also be held in the national language from abroad.

Among other things, this programme maintains and creates lasting connections that are of fundamental importance for the reconstruction and future German-Ukrainian cooperation between higher education institutions.


Programme objectives

Objective 1: Virtual courses for students are expanded, offered, and used by students of the partnering Ukrainian higher education institutions.

Objective 2: Lecturers of the partnering Ukrainian higher education institutions, especially those who have fled, are involved in the courses.

Objective 3: The expertise for further digitalisation of the participating German and Ukrainian higher education institutions and the professionalisation of digital teaching are available and can be used for the development of further (joint) virtual courses.
