83 foreign students studying at NTU “KhPI” were expelled from the University for violating the terms of the contract. According to the university administration, a high-quality educational process requires compliance with the schedule, elimination of academic debts and timely payment for tuition.
At May 12, 2022, thirty students of the fourth year of full-time education, forty-five students of I-III and V courses of full-time education, and eight students of pre-university training were expelled from NTU “KhPI”. These are citizens of Uzbekistan, Morocco, Turkmenistan, Ghana, Yemen, Nigeria, Turkey, Algeria, Syria, Ecuador, Tanzania, Iraq, Cameroon, Congo, Pakistan, Nepal, India, Lebanon, Egypt, Guinea, and stateless persons.
According to Gennadiy Khrypunov, vice-rector for scientific and pedagogical work of NTU “KhPI”, today the vast majority of foreign students continue their studies at the University remotely. University teachers use modern technologies, which allows to provide a high level of education. However, a high-quality educational process requires compliance with the schedule, elimination of academic debts and timely payment for tuition. Therefore, a number of foreign students were expelled for violating the terms of the contract.
“This is a forced measure, aimed at maintaining the high international level of the University,” says Vice-Rector Gennadiy Khrypunov. “However, it should be noted that expelled foreign students still have a chance to resume their studies at Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute. Now NTU “KhPI” creates centres in different countries for remote admission to the university for the first year of study, or for restoration as a student. In particular these centres will be opened in Azerbaijan, Turkey, China, Nigeria, Uzbekistan and others.”
