Focus Ukraine

In response to the current emergency situation in Ukraine, CIMEA has implemented a variety of activities and produced a series of documents aimed at providing detailed information on the Ukrainian higher education system.

CIMEA is happy to make its publications available to all Italian higher education institutions to support the recognition of secondary school and higher education qualifications from the Ukrainian system.

The resources provided may prove useful, first of all, for a better understanding of the structure of the Ukrainian education system, as well as to offer support in the evaluation of the relevant qualifications compared to the Italian system.

Finally, particular attention is paid to the documentary element, thereby providing useful information for both the consultation of the documents in the original language and the verification of the authenticity of the documentation presented.
