Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Ukraine university admission for the 2020 / 2021 academic year was dealt a big blow.
Schools were shut down on quarantine as students switched to online classes, while admission for international students were suspended.
However, when government started the gradual ease of the quarantine, some universities started processing admission for international students, in anticipation of total lifting of the shutdown.
However, those admissions are not accompanied with invitation letters because the Ukraine’s diplomatic missions in many countries are yet to work in full capacity.
