With its colourful history and its important geographic location, Lithuania is the bustling connecting hub between Western and Eastern Europe. The small nation with a population of just about 2.8 million has been an EU member since 2004 and, in 2015, adopted the Euro as its official currency. Over the past two decades, Lithuania’s education system has seen exciting reforms. Today, there are hundreds of interesting English-taught study options available to international students.
Facts and figures on Lithuanian higher education
There are more than 30 institutions of higher education in Lithuania. Similar to countries like Germany, the Netherlands, or Finland, the system distinguishes between universities and university colleges (kolegija), often also called “universities of applied sciences”.
Through the Bologna process, Lithuanian universities have adopted a Bachelor / Master structure for its academic programmes. The awarded degrees are recognised throughout Europe and globally.
