Foreign students must have a level of education comparable to a Lithuanian qualification required for admission to a higher education institution.
Centre for Quality Assessment in Higher Education (Lithuanian ENIC/NARIC) (www.skvc.lt) provides Information on the assessment and comparability of qualifications.
Foreign students must check with the MInistry of Foreign Affairs (www.urm.lt) because visa requirements may vary depending on the country of origin of the student.
Health insurance is obligatory to all foreign students in Lithuania. EU citizens who have health insurance in their home country do not need additional insurance.
A student should be proficient in the language of instruction. Usually, the language of instruction is Lithuanian and an applicant has to pass the pass/fail test in Lithuanian language (www.flf.vu.lt/lsk/). In case the language of instruction is other than Lithuanian (English, German, or Russian), applicants must pass a test to demonstrate their proficiency in that language.
