Rector of Sumy State University Vasyl KARPUSHA commented on the results of the first week of the educational process after the forced vacation due to martial law.

"On April 1, SumDU resumed the educational process, although, I emphasize: despite the difficult conditions of wartime, it didn’t stop its activities for a moment.

What did the first week of study show?

I can proudly state that students and staff, even those who are thousands of kilometers away from Sumy, remained loyal to SumDU and started their studying.

We have resumed the educational process in the remote format, provided all participants with favorable mechanisms of interaction.

It is pleasant that almost one hundred percent of students attend online classes taking into account the fact that in some locations students have technical problems with the means of communication and access to the Internet. However, they find the opportunity to perform educational tasks. This means that our students stay at SumDU, want to continue studying at our university, to gain knowledge here, because they are sure about the quality of our education.

The first week after the resumption of the study showed that the terrible war could not separate our teacher and student staff. On the contrary, we are more consolidated than ever and focused on further development.

I am sincerely grateful to the staff of the university who kept in touch with students, who developed and adapted the teaching material by the format of classes, who provided and provide functioning the material and technical base of the university, who are currently establishing health and sports, cultural and artistic work. I am sincerely grateful to the students who believe in and trust SumDU.

I wish all participants of the educational process the successful completion of the spring semester, good results in studying. The front of SumDU is quality education!

We support our defenders! We believe in the peaceful future of Ukraine!

SumDU unites! ”
