Feedback from lecturers and students
“I will never get tired to say how great was my study experience at VMU. Besides giving me a lot in terms of knowledge, it also allowed me to live in an extremely cozy environment, meeting new international friends and having the chance to get valuable feedback and personal suggestions from greatly skilled teachers and professors. Undoubtedly my study period at VMU enriched me a lot and gave me additional international experience that will always be useful for any kind of future choice.“
