The University of Toronto will offer free education to 200 Ukrainian students
The University of Toronto is supporting Ukrainians who have been forced to flee the country in light of the tragic situation in Ukraine.
Thanks to a donation from the Temerty Foundation, the University of Toronto has announced that it is preparing to admit more than 200 Ukrainian students whose studies have been disrupted by the ongoing war.
The University of Toronto and the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy (KMA) have teamed up as part of the Special Exchange Program 2022-2023. Thanks to this initiative, not only students but also up to five professors of the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy will be invited as guest lecturers.
Melanie Woodin, dean of the Faculty of Arts & Science said that KMA students and faculty should return to a peaceful Ukraine at the end of the year term, but University of Toronto will remain a strong partner should they need ongoing assistance. According to her, the inbound exchange is just the beginning of a wide-ranging partnership that will include student and faculty exchanges.
