INFORMATION FOR NOMINATED ERASMUS STUDENT

The international student will be admitted without having to pay tuition fees if he/she intends to study at the University within the framework of an exchange programme (e.g. Erasmus) or if he/she is taking part in any other officially recognized student exchange agreement between Mykolas Romeris University and his home university or mobility programme under State international agreements. Such student is called an EXCHANGE STUDENT.

INFORMATION FOR FREE MOVERS (VISITING STUDENTS)

The international student can also arrange his/her studies on his/her own initiative and in this case he/she has to pay for them. Such student is called a non-degree FREE MOVER (or Visiting student). Tuition fee is calculated according to number of ECTS credits selected for studies at MRU by the Free- mover (visiting student). The charge for one ECTS credit depends on the cycle of studies (Bachelor or Master), the field of studies and it is different for EU citizens and non-EU citizens. For academic year 2017-2018 tuition fee for 1 ECTS credit for EU citizens is from 22 Eur to 38 Eur; for non- EU citizens is from 36 Eur to 53 Eur. The required number of credits per semester for a free mover (visiting student) is between 25 to 30 ECTS credits.

GRADING SYSTEM AT MYKOLAS ROMERIS UNIVERSITY

Mykolas Romeris University uses a criterial ten-point grading scale for assessment of the learning outcomes and a cumulative nature of assessment is applied in order to ensure active work of students during the students. Cumulative assessment shall assess learning outcomes by means of interim evaluations. The final grade is made of the grades of interim evaluations and grades of the examination. Usually, the assessment of the examination makes 40-50 percent of the final grade, whereas that of interim evaluations – 50-60 percent.
