The Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Innovation, Abdellatif Miraoui, announced that his department was currently working in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of Ukraine in Morocco to revise certain provisions of the law governing the examination of Took “. The objective is to find other ways to allow students to take this exam in Morocco, which normally requires their presence on site.

After a meeting held in early September 2022 with representatives of the Ukrainian diplomatic and educational authorities, it was agreed that the Moroccan students concerned could continue their studies remotely in the Ukrainian universities where they are registered.

Miraoui also underlined that his ministry will take several measures to facilitate obtaining the equivalence of certificates and diplomas obtained from Ukrainian universities, in particular by exempting students from presenting a residence permit.
