Language of instruction: Lithuanian, English
The main language of instruction is Lithuanian. Individual tutorials might be available in English depending on the particular study department. There is also a range of available optional courses for exchange students, which are taught entirely in English. Exchange students have the possibility to combine their study plan from the list of optional subjects in English and the list of available study programme subjects within particular departments. Normally, the lectures in the departments are carried out in Lithuanian. However, as much of the study process is based on individual work, especially in MA level, exchange students might get individual instructions in English from assigned professors.
