And to add: “We will provide our students with an inventory of schools, colleges and universities whose diplomas will have no problem being recognized, so that they do not waste their time”.

Asked about Moroccan students in Ukraine awaiting their diplomas, Miraoui conceded: Given the war that continues in Ukraine, “the case is difficult”.

He explained in the sense that the universities only deliver the diplomas by hand to their holders. “We tried to contact the Ministry of Higher Education in Ukraine, but there was no response from them,” he said.
