Graduate from Belarus
Choosing Vilnius University was one of the best decisions of my life! I fell in love with the lectures and the professors’ approach to teaching: the studies were very interesting and after one semester, I felt that it was easier to concentrate on them. Moreover, the university staff is very nice and helpful: they are always ready to help you, no matter what kind of problems you have. I also really enjoyed the atmosphere in my group: we had both Lithuanian and international students from all over the world, so I learned a lot about other countries and cultures.
And Vilnius is an amazing city to live in: it quickly becomes your home and then you can’t imagine your life without coming back here. I highly recommend to study in VU: it is a place that will change your life!
