Ranked in QS World University Rankings as a leader in the country by its internationality, VMU is the only public higher education institution in Lithuania and one of the few in the region where a wide liberal arts education is imparted. This means that students can change and organize their schedule freely, minor in one field and major in another, travel abroad on international exchange and get ready for those trips by taking some of the available 30 foreign language courses. As a reflection of global academic trends, more and more lectures (separate courses and even whole study programs) are taught in English, many of them by professors from abroad. VMU offers Bachelor and Master degree programs, which are entirely taught in English. Every semester university gathers the colorful international community, which unites representatives from nearly 60 countries around the world. Read less
