Regarding upcoming Academic Year 2020/2021

Dear International Students,

on behalf of Vytautas Magnus University (VMU), we would like to express our appreciation for your decision to join our university community. We would like to share our current plans for the upcoming autumn semester 2020.

The academic year at VMU will start as usual on 31 August. We prefer face-to-face activities to the online mode. If needed, some of the activities at the beginning might take place online. Still, we are ready and fully equipped to deal with all possible scenarios: resumed spread of the virus, national and international restrictions, and other circumstances that may force us to move online during the autumn semester.

We allow international students who experience difficulties entering Lithuania to attend studies using online tools and, if necessary, on an individual basis, until the end of October or until most of them have arrived in Lithuania.

Please note that Lithuania is among the safest countries in the World in terms of COVID-19. We advise you to continuously check information regarding visa issuance policy (information provided by the visa center and the Lithuanian Embassy at your country of residence). VMU is eagerly waiting for you to arrive and join our community in the autumn semester 2020.

In case of any matters that require immediate attention, you are welcome to contact the VMU International Study Unit (for degree students,, the Erasmus Mobility Unit (for Erasmus+ exchange students, and the International Cooperation Department (for other inquiries,
