Bilateral Exchange

Seeking to encourage student mobility and retain close relations with partner universities abroad, Vytautas Magnus University has founded the VMU exchange programme scholarship in autumn 2009 for the students who travel abroad under VMU’s bilateral collaboration agreements. Students who apply for this scholarship can travel to study at a university abroad for a semester or a year. The competition is announced twice a year: during the spring and autumn semesters. At the moment Vytautas Magnus University has around 140 bilateral collaboration agreements with universities from 40 countries of the world.

Every year around 20 students of the faculty go on bilateral exchange to Japan, China, South Korea, Israel and other countries.
