Lithuania has one of the best educational systems in the World. Many universities participate in student exchange programs. Most popular international college in Lithuania is Lithuania Christian College in Klaipeda (http://www.lcc.lt/). The best universities of Lithuania are Vilnius University Vilniaus Universitetas, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University Vilniaus Gedimino Technikos Universitetas and Kaunas University of Technology Kauno Technologijos Universitetas.
One of the oldest Universities of Europe in that Finnish language also is taught is located in Vilnius.
In Kaunas there is the biggest technical university, KTU, in the country and a medical university KMU, sports academy LKKA, the veterinary medicine academy LVA, music and theatre academy LMTA, agriculture university LZUU and multidisciplinary University of Vytautas Magnus, VDU.
Klaipeda and Siauliai also has its own universities. In the country several lower educational institutions which go with the name kolegija engl a college also are found.
The course supply hangs very much from the university and there also are somewhere programmes for English. However, pay attention to the fact that Lithuania's official language is Lithuanian and in the law it has been prescribed that the Lithuanian student has a right to study in Lithuanian in Lithuania. Especially all the courses of the candidate level will be thus in Lithuanian and in the Master of Arts programmes in English the bulk of the courses is in English. Depending on the rules of the university the courses must have a certain number of foreign students before it must be in English it touches courses in English and if this limit is not exceeded, the lecturer may lecture, if desired, in Lithuanian. Because the employment of universities has been lowered last year about 20% and the addition which is paid for the courses in English in some universities to the lecturers was removed, many lecturers choose the easiest road preferably for them to themselves. Then the foreign students can take the course by writing either essays or based on personal meetings.
The grading system in Lithuania is generally 1-10 in which 5-10 correspond to the accepted performances. The local students usually have to keep their average very high and still a higher one in order to get the scholarship in order to guarantee free studies. There is no financial aid for studies.
