The federal government says it is making efforts to facilitate the placement of students affected by the conflict in Ukraine into Nigerian universities.

Many residents of Ukraine, including Nigerians, fled to neighbouring countries after Russian troops invaded Ukraine on February 24.

The Nigerian government had also evacuated Nigerian students from the country.

In a statement on Monday, the ministry of foreign affairs, through its spokesperson, Francisca Omayuli, asked interested students to complete a survey on the ministry’s website in order to facilitate their placement to various Nigerian universities.


“The federal government of Nigeria wishes to inform Nigerian students who returned from Ukraine following the conflict in that country, that efforts are being made to facilitate their placement into various Nigerian tertiary institutions, to enable them continue their studies,” the statement reads.

“In this connection, interested students should visit the ministry of foreign affairs website: https://www.foreignaffairs.gov.ng and complete the online Nigerian Student in Ukraine (NSU) registration form with the required information on or before 15th July 2022.”

TheCable had earlier reported that the Russian government said it was willing to offer admissions to Nigerians interested in continuing their studies.


On June 28, the house of representatives asked the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) to allow final-year medical students that completed their examinations in Ukraine before the invasion, to register with the council.

The lower legislative chamber also wants fifth-year medical students evacuated from Ukraine to be absorbed into medical schools in Nigerian universities to complete their programmes.

The resolution was passed during plenary, following the adoption of a motion of urgent public importance sponsored by Tajudeen Yusuf from Kogi.
