Ukrainian students who fled war struggle to pay international tuition fees

News Opinion

In a recent editorial from University World News, Nathan M Greenfield discusses how students who fled from Ukraine may struggle to pay tuition because they are not classed as refugees and must pay international student rates. While Ukrainians who fled to Canada receive free elementary and secondary education, they were not categorised by the United Nations as refugees, and students who have now graduated from high school and are hoping to continue to postsecondary studies must pay international tuition rates. Greenfield writes that some provinces have announced that the students will pay domestic rates starting in September, but that the Government of Ontario has not made a similar province-wide decision.
