The Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine has simplified rules of enrollment in external studies for residents of the occupied and uncontrolled territories, as well as the line of contact. This is reported in the press service of the Ministry.
The list of persons who can receive secondary education in Ukraine in the form of externship included residents of the occupied territories of Crimea and Sevastopol, the territory of ATO and settlements on the line of contact.
As stated in the message by MES it is provided in the new edition of the regulation on external studies in secondary schools that recently entered into force (the Order of MES No. 369 from March 13, 2017).
The list added 3 more categories:
- Persons with refugee status;
- Individuals granted temporary or supplementary protection in Ukraine;
- Persons applying for refugee status or additional or temporary protection.
Now accepting applications of enrolment in externship starts on September 1. Persons who resided or reside in the territory of the Crimea, uncontrolled territories or settlements on the line of contact will apply during the entire calendar year. Residents of these territories can also send the scan copy of the application via email or Fax.
In addition, a minor, who left the uncontrolled territory or locality on the line of contact, can personally apply. He or she needs to be accompanied by relatives or other adults who are not their legal representatives.
The head of the institution will decide whether to enroll or not a student in externship. It is not necessary to coordinate it with the local department of education.
Also, the student on an extern basis has the right simultaneously to primary, basic and complete secondary education.
