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 2018-2019 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.

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE IN LITHUANIA 

Once you have decided to study at the Mykolas Romeris University, do not forget to do the following: 
  • Inform Erasmus Co-ordinator about your choice at Home University (there might be deadlines for selection procedures).  Free-movers  need to inform their Home University as well. 
  • Your Home University co-ordinator must NOMINATE you to study as Erasmus+ or exchange student at MRU. (Not applicable for free-movers)
  • All applicants must complete the relevant applications:
  • Check if you need to obtain a visa at the Migration Department.
  • Check if your health insurance policy is valid in Lithuania (especially for non-EU citizens)

  • All the documents should be carefully filled out and submitted to the International Office (IO) via the on-line application system before the deadlines May 31 for Autumn semester or academic year and November 30th for Spring semester. 
As soon as IO receives the request for accommodation, reservation of required type of accommodation is made. If MRU housing facilities are overbooked, help in the search of alternative housing is offered (i. e. rooms and/or flats in a private sector).With the receipt of student application and study plan, relevant faculty is informed and learning agreement is prepared for approval by  the faculty responsible coordinator. Only when the faculty accepts the study plan requested in the learning agreement, International Office prepares acceptance documents and a student soon receives acceptance letter, learning agreement signed by relevant MRU faculty coordinator, notification concerning accommodation (if reruested)  and further details on arrival and studies.
