→Student Experiences

• Aura Greičiūtė, Graduate from Lithuania, Currently working at the International Admission Office of MRU :
International and Intercultural Communication at Mykolas Romeris University is a perfect programme for students who are active and can‘t decide the clear sphere of their future job. It is focused on learning new languages and includes all at once: Politics, Journalism, Tourism, and even Public Relation Sphere. As the studies are so diversified there are bigger chances to catch something you like the most and at which you are the best. It also gives important opportunities like for my internship at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, or when I went to Spain for an Erasmus Traineeship. I learnt a lot about cultural differences and it allowed me to become more self-confident.
The University itself has a wide sphere of organisations (debates clubs, student association, Erasmus Student Network) where you can try and gain all the competences needed for future communication specialist. Courses which I liked the most were Spanish, Religious Studies and Creative Industry Classes.
• Prince Kwesi Asihene, Student from Ghana:
Lithuania to me, is a very welcoming and awesome country full of opportunities and with an interesting culture and a friendly atmosphere. Economically, the standard of living is quite moderated, and cost of things is very affordable. I am easily adjusting here – attended interesting places and can continue my hobby as DJ in pubs of Vilnius. The programme of International and Intercultural communication is really exciting and very relevant for my future job prospect. Most of the professors are experts on breaking down topics to the understanding of students. The flow of Information and Communication among teachers and students is perfect. There is also a great teacher-students relationship. Furthermore, the flow of Information from the International Office to International Student is awesome. I am grateful to the office for their good work by constantly emailing and feeding students with vital messages. Briefly, my living here in Lithuania is very great, environment friendly, quality education and I am having a good time.
  • Mohammad Osman Yakqbi, Student from Afghanistan :
I came to Lithuania in 2017, to me it is a lovely and amazing country, the country is so green, and a lot of its surface is mostly forests. Vilnius is my favorite place to visit and I do recommend my friend from the EU and Afghanistan to visit this beautiful country and meet with great and educated people. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) for their generosity in providing scholarship assistance to me at MRU University, in Vilnius Lithuania. This kindness from MRU does not only allow me to continue with my valuable study of the International and Intercultural Communication, but it also sets an example of the humanitarian help, which I hope to emulate in my daily life, both inside and outside the walls of the university. It is mentionable how wonderful Professors we have at the university are and they share their wisdom with us. It’s impossible to compare education system of my country with Lithuania particularly MRU University. Thank you for planting these generous seeds for new generation locally and Internationally.
