Erasmus+ and Exchange Studies

Exchange Programmes

Sukurta: 18 May 2011

There are two types of NON-DEGREE students:

Exchange Students are those who come to Vilnius University under the exchange programme or bilateral agreement. They are treated according to the programme or agreement conditions and, as a rule, are exempt from the tuition fees at Vilnius University.

Free-Movers are those who come to Vilnius University under their own initiative. They are expected to cover their tuition fees which are calculated according to their chosen courses so the prices may vary from faculty to faculty.


Vilnius University participates in these EXCHANGE PROGRAMMES:
