Prof. dr. Antanas Valantinas,  lecturer:


It is a great honor and a challenge to lecture in this programme. I've been teaching international students for five years already and I'm still not sure who is gaining more: me or my students? Every year I start a three-year journey with a new group of international students through subjects I teach them. And every time I enjoy getting acquainted with the cultural differences, a huge variety of learning and studying styles and traditions. I can see how the students know each other not only as personalities, but also as representatives of their culture. The international group of students has a huge advantage: they can examine how different cultures experience a variety of psychological phenomena or regularities. They study cross-cultural differences not from books, but by knowing each other and communicating with each other. If only I could once again return to the beginning of my professional career, I would start from an international undergraduate psychology programme.

STUDENTS TESTIMONIALS
Dor Koren, Graduate from Israel:
 
Choosing to study psychology at MRU in Lithuania has been one of the largest decisions I made in my short life, but is one I do not regret. It had its pros and cons, as all outcomes, but is, in the end, a learning experience with which to grow. I am no longer the person I was when I first entered the university, and for that I am grateful.  
Rūta Valiulytė, Graduate:
When I was 17 years old, I left to the United States to study and to play basketball. After the graduation, I came back to Lithuania, and decided to study psychology in English at Mykolas Romeris University. I have heard a lot of good reviews from current and former psychology students who studied in MRU – I especially liked that the lecturers are young, but have a lot of experience, emphasis is put on practical tasks, student groups are not large and attention is given to each student separately. It sounded familiar to my previous academic experience in the USA, and I thought that for those reasons MRU would be a great fit for me. Of course, for a lot of people my choice to study in English seemed strange, because I live in Lithuania and speak Lithuanian, but I always had plans to eventually continue my studies overseas. Even though the programme itself was still very young, the studies did not disappoint me one bit – I have learned a lot from my lecturers, who were innovative and enthusiastic, and, I must say, have done a wonderful job of passing through the information in English language. The lecturers were always willing to help, and the university’s library had plenty of resources if need be. I also got an opportunity to complete an internship already in my second year of university. Even though the group was not large, each semester we had foreign exchange students who joined the programme. The group ended up being very multicultural, which made the discussions even more interesting. At the moment I am living in Australia, where I am pursuing a diploma in counselling, and hope to continue to pursue a master’s degree in psychology. As for the programme, I hope it continues to grow and to improve, and attracts not only international, but also Lithuanian students, who are thinking of studying psychology in English language.
