Abstract: The results of a study of Lithuanian students’ migrational attitudes are presented in this article. A qualitative analysis was done in order to find out students’ thoughts about, and attitudes, towards the migrational processes that take place in Lithuania today. By answering open-ended questions, ten students from various Lithuanian universities shared their experience and offered their opinions about studying and working in Lithuania and abroad. The merits and demerits of the current situation were related to their own present and potential migratory motivations. The study revealed that in talking about emigration they had in mind short-term work migration first. This was seen as an opportunity to gain experience and save money. The results also showed that different expectations were applied to working in Lithuania and working abroad. The only demand set for working abroad was that the pay be good, while working in Lithuania had to meet selfexpression needs in addition to providing good pay and the opportunity of working in a field matching one’s qualifications.
