Academic Calendar

Academic year at Vytautas Magnus University starts on the last week of August and lasts until the middle of June. It is divided into two semesters: Autumn Semester and Spring Semester. Each semester includes 15 weeks of lectures and two weeks of examinations. Usually in the middle of each semester students have to take midterm tests.

During the first two weeks of semester, students have to register for courses at the departments where those courses are offered.

Note! Students may drop out of or join courses during the registration procedure at the faculties (during first two weeks of each semester). After the registration period students have to attend and complete all courses in which they are enrolled. Regular class attendance is necessary for maximum success at the university. If students do not attend the courses in which they are enrolled, at the end of semester they will not be able to pass the exam, i.e. they will receive a negative mark.
