A lady has taken to Twitter to lament about the discrimination Nigerian students who fled Ukraine following the war with Russia, are being subjected to by universities in the European country.
@Chylady revealed that Nigerian students who fled Ukraine are being pressurized to pay their fees for September and return to the country without their safety being guaranteed.
She also said the Ukrainian universities are threatening to expel the students if they don’t pay their fees and are also frustrating their requests for transcripts to transfer to other universities.
It was also alleged that while these universities are facilitating the transfer of Ukrainian students into European universities, they threaten African students who request for their transcripts and also insist they must pay they must their school fees or risk getting expelled.

''Nigerian students who fled Ukraine are being discriminated against by their Ukrainian universities.The universities are pressurising the students to return to Ukraine to pay their fees for September without guaranteeing their safety
The Ukrainian universities are also threatening to expel the students if they don’t pay their fees but frustrating their requests for transcripts to transfer to other universities.
At the same time they are facilitating the transfer of Ukrainian students into European universities.
Also I was told that African students who requests for their transcripts are told they must pay for the next years full fees and agree to be expelled.. this is insane
Ukrainian universities are threatening African students who fled Ukraine with cancellation of resident permits if they request for transcripts.
The students are also denied transfer opportunities into EU universities for many reasons including not having transcripts
They have asked African students to pay for the next September session & go back into Ukraine to continue their studies while mandating that they must sign a document stating they are going back at their own risk & the Ukrainian university will not be responsible for their safety.''
