Immigration of students

One of the bases for immigration to Lithuania is an intention of an alien to study in Lithuania.

If an alien wishes to study in Lithuania, he (she) shall, first of all, choose an education institution and a study programme. If the alien satisfies all the requirements set by the education institution for admittance as well as any other requirements, the alien may apply for issue a Temporary Residence Permit in Lithuania on the base of his (her) intention to study in Lithuania. The documents for issue a Residence Permit in Lithuania may be submitted to a diplomatic mission or a consular institution in a foreign state or to the Migration Service in Lithuania.

Studies in Lithuania Studies in Lithuania

In Lithuania, the opportunities for studies and acquisition of higher education are provided both for citizens of Lithuania and aliens. It should be noted that a diploma of higher education issued in Lithuania is recognized in other European Union Member States, so one should not be afraid that such a diploma will be recognized within the territory of Lithuania only.

Special study programme for students from foreign states are offered both by universities and colleges.  Studies in Lithuania may consist of several cycles: the first-cycle studies are bachelor’s studies, the second-cycle studies are master’s studies and the third-cycle studies are doctor’s studies. Lithuanian universities and colleges offer over one hundred of different study programmes for foreigners – from the humanities and social sciences to medicine and technologies.
