The Mentors’ programme aims to make the adaptation process of incoming international students at VMU easier, fosters volunteering and increases international experience among VMU students. The Mentors’ programme at Vytautas Magnus University (VMU) was launched in 2003 and is coordinated by VMU International Cooperation Department.
A mentor is a student of VMU who has already studied abroad (or perhaps is planning to study in the future), has motivation, international and intercultural experience and voluntarily helps the incoming foreign students.

- Meets international students in Kaunas train / bus station / airport and accompanies them to the living place
- Assists students in orientating themselves at VMU and in Kaunas
- Helps students in everyday matters and making new friends throughout the exchange period
