 • Kristina Schimmels, Lecturer from the USA:
I think this Programme prepares students for their future life in the worldwide competitive job market. Students are able to study a variety of subjects that give them skills attractive for future employers. Class sizes are also small, so students are able to get to know their Professors well and have the ability to get one-on-one help if they need it. The Professors also have vast experience teaching and studying in different countries. Several of the professors are native speakers. Students are able to acquire a world-class education in Lithuania.

→ Student Experiences

• Dovilė Guigaitė, Graduate:
I always wanted to study foreign languages. Thus when I noticed a study programme called “English for Specific Purposes and a Second Foreign Language” at MRU website, I had no doubts about choosing this particular programme. It provides an opportunity not only to enhance knowledge of general English language and learn English for professional areas as well as public administration, law, and business, but also to learn and master another foreign language. Currently, I am able to understand and communicate in French fluently. As a philologist, I took the opportunity to put all the knowledge I gained during my studies into practice when I decided to participate to the ERASMUS exchange programme. After a semester spent in France, the internship at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Lithuania, the Department of Lithuanians living abroad followed. During my practice I applied my competences acquired at MRU and I was able to have a closer look at the work of a state institution. All this incredible experience has become an excellent starting point after graduation. If I had to choose again, I would definitely choose this study programme!
• Nina Nyløkken, 1st year student from Norway:
I always had a special interest in languages and that is the main reason why I ended up choosing the study programme “English for Specific Purposes and the Second Foreign Language”. By taking this programme, I am not only improving my knowledge of the English language but I also get the opportunity to learn German as my second foreign language. For me this was an appealing factor since it will give me competence in two languages. In addition, I selected Lithuanian for my elective study, so I really get the chance to broaden my knowledge of different languages.
I chose to study in Lithuania since I always wanted to study abroad and Lithuania is a country I already had visited and liked. The capital Vilnius is a very beautiful city and I feel that the people here are welcoming. I am also feeling at home at the University. Here I have met many other interesting students from different countries and I have been very lucky with my professors, which are all helpful and motivating.
