Ukrainian students sitting uni entrance exams in Maribor
Ljubljana, 26 August - Ukrainian students who have sought refuge in Slovenia were able to sit admissions tests to Ukrainian universities in the Slovenian city of Maribor in what was a joint campaign in response to the Ukrainian Education Ministry's appeal.
The Institute of Information Science (IZUM) ensured that a total of 51 candidates took the August exams, said the Slovenian Education Ministry on Friday.
Its Ukrainian counterpart urged some EU member states in the spring to help Ukraine administer the admissions tests.
The campaign in Slovenia was carried out in cooperation with the Ukrainian ministry and the Ukrainian Embassy in Ljubljana.
In late June, together with two European commissioners, Slovenian Education Minister Igor Papič expressed support for the EU measures dedicated to helping Ukrainian students and allowing them to continue their studies.
