Ukrainian Education in Emergency

Millions of Ukrainian children interrupted their education and moved to a safer place abroad after the beginning of the full-scale invasion of russia into Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Thousands of schools have suffered bombing and shelling and hundreds have been destroyed completely.

This website is created for ministries of education, international education managers, and teachers to help our children adjust to new schools and curriculums in foreign countries. Here you can find a brief description of the Ukrainian education system and typical school curriculums.

We are grateful for your support of Ukraine and our children!

The most common learning options for school students from Ukraine are the following.

Option 1. If a school in Ukraine, where the children used to study in, has already organized distance learning, it is necessary to recommend students to join it. Parents should contact this educational institution.

It is advisable to create favourable conditions for maintaining contact with the educational institution and teachers – if possible, provide students with access to digital devices and high-speed Internet to join online classes and/or to complete tasks.

Option 2. In case the contact with the Ukrainian educational institution and its teachers is lost, Ukrainian students and their parents are recommended:

to contact the educational authority of their community, city or region for information about the school that provides distance or externship learning, and to address this school for enrollment/transfer of the child in order to continue or complete their studies;

until the studies at the new educational institution begin, it is advisable to create favourable conditions to continue studies using e-learning resources from Ukraine, in particular, the All-Ukrainian Online School and the All-Ukrainian Online Schedule – if possible provide students with access to digital devices and high-speed Internet to access Ukrainian e-learning resources.

Such learning can be organized as a self-study or with the involvement of volunteers, coordinators, teachers from Ukraine who temporarily reside abroad, and also by setting up classes and/or groups in educational institutions in the host country.

Option 3. Parents of school students can also apply to the International Ukrainian School (IUS) either directly or through one of the IUS partner organizations to get their children enrolled and involve them in distance learning.

Studies will be conducted according to Ukrainian state standards and educational programs, and graduation certificates will be issued by the International Ukrainian School (IUS).
