Would you like to study in Lithuania? You are always welcome to come and find out how good it is to study in the country that was the first in Eastern Europe to establish a university.

Professional qualifications acquired in Lithuania are recognized abroad. Besides, our country has signed agreements on academic exchanges with 16 countries around the world. Each year over 1,000 students and teachers leave for studies or internships abroad.

Public schools of higher education use Lithuanian as a language of instruction, but other languages are also possible if a curriculum is linked to another language or if classes are held by foreign teachers, or if studies are carried out under study programs for foreigners or in case of  academic exchanges.

 

TUITION FEES

The best graduates are offered state-funded places at schools of higher education, in other words, they are not charged for the tuition. The number of the lucky ones by fields of studies or program is fixed by the Government on annual basis.

All the rest may choose among paid studies. Each school of higher education has its own tuition fees, which can be covered with the state-sponsored loan.

Applicants to Lithuania’s universities, who are foreigners of Lithuanian origin, may be assigned up to four extra points to the total enrolment score, including two points given to all the emigrants and foreigners of Lithuanian origin, and the other two – to the graduates of Lithuanian schools abroad. Currently, there are six Lithuanian schools operating outside Lithuania, namely: the February 16th Gymnasium in Germany, Punsk March 11 Lyceum in Poland, Moscow Jurgis Baltru?aitis School in Russia, Riga Lithuanian Secondary School in Latvia, also Rimd?i?nai and Pelesa secondary schools in Belarus.

The state-funded places (50 at universities and 50 at colleges) are also available for the residents of the European Union and the Economic Area, other foreigners with permanent residence in Lithuania, as well as emigrants of Lithuanian descent. For those who cannot speak Lithuanian but wish to pursue studies in this language, a one-year equalizing course may be arranged.

There is a binary higher education system in Lithuania. Therefore higher education institutions are of two types: universities and colleges; state and non-state. Non-state higher education institutions can practice their teachings based on a license passed by the Government of the Republic of Lithuania. Studies at university-level are organized in three stages: first stage (undergraduate), second stage (graduate), and third stage (post-graduate).                                

A higher education is acquired after the completion of undergraduate studies, which generally last three and a half to four and a half years (National Credit Transfer System (NCTS) 140-180 credits) in an institution of higher education. Upon completion of the undergraduate studies, a specialized professional or Master degree program, lasting one and a half to two years (NCTS 60-80 credits), can be undertaken at the Universities. Doctoral studies in Lithuania last for three to four years.

The national credit system is based on the average 1600 working hours per academic year; one credit equals 40 hours notional hours of student work (in classes, laboratories, independent work etc.), or to one working week. Comparable with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) credits, one national credit corresponds to 1.5 ECTS credits. There are three modes of studies: full-time daytime, part-time evening and part-time extra-mural. Classes are held from September to June during the academic year and the long vacation - from 1st July till 31st August.

The higher education institutions follow the guidelines of the Bologna declaration. The Bologna process was initiated in 1999 when the Ministers of Education from 29 European countries signed the Bologna declaration. The purpose of the Bologna process is to create educational standards for academic degrees and quality assurance of European higher education. The Bologna System uses the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) to measure the amount of higher education credits.

The Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Lithuania sets out the programs for studying. Quality is periodically monitored by the Centre for Quality Assessment in Higher Education.

Applicant will be required to pay for Invitation letter of study-$350 + Visa support letter-$200 and Courier service -$150.total$700. Only eligible students are required to pay this amount.
