International Cooperation

Openness to the world is an approach that permeates all aspects of the life at Vytautas Magnus University (VMU). From inter-institutional cooperation to individual initiatives, from full studies to short programmes, from cooperation with foreign researchers and scholars to initiatives involving the Lithuanian diaspora, there is hardly an area unaffected by the welcoming effects of internationalization.

VMU is a globally-oriented multilingual institution that continuously develops international networks and intercultural dialogues, participates in international scientific, academic and social projects, encourages lecturer and student mobility, and promotes dialogue and tolerance. VMU avoids restrictions posed by political, ideological and economic interests, treating everyone with respect and appreciation and providing the opportunity to attend courses of 30 modern and classic languages.

Because of this approach, an important role at the university belongs to the VMU International Cooperation Department (ICD) responsible for successful encounters between VMU and the world, facilitating inter-institutional cooperation, implementation of projects, student and employee exchanges, thus improving our study and research system along the way.

Functions of the ICD:

  • Cooperation with Lithuanian and foreign institutions that develop VMU’s international profile
  • Coordination of mobility schemes for university staff, faculty and students
  • Close cooperation with other VMU departments initiating partnerships and executing mobility schemes
  • Promotion of study and exchange opportunities
  • Representation of VMU abroad
