Lithuania

A small country home to 3 million citizens, Lithuania has one of the fastest growing economies of the Baltic countries over the last two decades. Despite its rapid modernisation and economic growth, Lithuania provides students an opportunity to live and study in one of the best preserved Medieval countries, with over 2000 various buildings representing the characteristics of early Eastern Europe. With both a comfortable climate and a perfect balance between towns and cities and rolling landscapes, Lithuania is a treasure among Eastern European countries.

BELOW IS A LIST OF LINKS, WHICH WILL GET YOUR DETAILED INFORMATION ON EDUCATION IN LITHUANIA.

As part of the European Union, Lithuania’s universities are demonstrative of the high standards of higher education belonging to the area. With just over 50 universities and colleges around the country, its education tradition is one of the oldest in Eastern Europe, dating back to 1579 with the establishment of Vilnius University in the nation’s capital of Vilnius.

Students who chose to study in Lithuania can enhance their education experience by taking advantage of the numerous cultural institutions and museums existing within Vilnius, in the country’s former capital Trakai, and within the country.

Types of institutions

There two types of higher education institutions:

  • universities (called universitetas (university), akademija (academy), or seminarija (seminary)) representing university sector of higher edcuation;
  • colleges of higher education (called kolegija (higher education college) or aukštojimokykla (higher education institution)) representing non-university higher education sector.

Universities offer university level degree granting studies and award Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctoral degrees. Colleges offer college level degree granting studies and award Professional Bachelor’s degrees. Both universities and colleges can also offer non-degree granting studies.

Until 2000, higher education system was unitary. The binary system of higher education consisting of university sector and non-university sector was introduced in 2000.During the institutional reform, which started in 2000 a non-university (college) higher education sector was gradually developed on the basis of aukštesnysismokslas (advanced vocational education and training), which was vocationally oriented, was offered by aukštesniojimokykla (advanced vocational education and training school), and did not form a part of the higher education system. The reform aimed to phase out advanced vocational education and to develop a non-university higher education sector. Under the reform the schools that were sufficiently qualified to provide non-university higher education were made into higher education colleges (kolegija) or departments of such colleges.

After the institutional reform (2000), vocational education and training programmes were still provided by colleges for several years. Aukštesniojomokslo diplomas (advanced vocational education and training diploma), certifying completion of post-secondary, but not higher education, continued to be issued for graduates who have entered the schools prior to the reform,. The last students of the advanced vocational programmes graduated in the academic year 2006-2007.

Degree-granting studies

In Lithuania, the following degrees can be awarded:

  • 1st cycle: profesinisbakalauras (Professional Bachelor) or bakalauras (Bachelor);
  • 2nd cycle: magistras (Master);
  • 3rd cycle: mokslodaktaras (Doctor of Sciences) or menodaktaras (Doctor of Arts).
1st cycle

Applicants to such cycle of studies are required to have brandosatestatas or an equivalent qualification. Profesinisbakalauras (Professional Bachelor) degree is awarded after completion of college level study programmes which are more oriented towards preparation for professional activity and applied research. Professional Bachelor’s degree programmes require completion of 180-210 credits. After completion of the studies Profesiniobakalauro diplomas (Professional Bachelor’s Diploma) is awarded.

Up to 2007 graduates of college programmes were issued an Aukštojomokslo diplomas (Diploma of Higher Education) indicating the title of the awarded qualification, for example vadybininkas (manager), kineziterapeutas (physiotherapist), auklėtojas (educator), etc. Since 2007, colleges have obtained the right to award profesinisbakalauras (Professional Bachelor) degree. Following national legislation, both qualifications are considered equal.

Bakalauras (Bachelor) degree study programmes are oriented to expand one’s general education and provide knowledge in certain field of science or art and offer the background necessary for further study or professional activity. The programmes require completion of 210-240 credits. Compared to college studies, university curriculum is more academically oriented. After completion of the studies Bakalauro diplomas (Bachelor’s Diploma) is awarded.
Up to 2009, following national legislation, after completion of such type of programmes, only a title of a qualification, for example mokytojas (teacher), etc., but not a Bachelor’s degree could also have been awarded. In such cases, Aukštojomokslo diplomas (a Diploma of Higher Education) was issued to the graduates.

2nd cycle

Applicants to such cycle of studies are required to have a Bachelor’s degree or an equivalent qualification. Magistras (Master) degree study programmes are designed to prepare for independent research activity or any other activity the performance of which requires scientific knowledge and analytical competence. The programmes require completion of 90-120 credits. After completion of the studies Magistro diplomas (Master’s diploma) is awarded. To be admitted to second cycle studies, a person must have obtained a Bachelor’s or Professional Bachelor’s degree or a comparable qualification, and meet requirements set by the accepting higher education institution.

Up to 2009, specialiosiosprofesinėsstudjios (specialised professional studies), another type of 2nd level studies was a part of higher education system. After completion of such studies, a professional qualification could have been obtained without the right to enter university 3rd cycle studies (doctoral studies). Specialised professional studies were intended for better preparation for activities which require special practical ability. In order to complete these studies 40 – 80 credits were required to acquire. Applicants to such studies had to have a Bachelor’s degree or an equivalent qualification. After completion of the studies Aukštojomokslo diplomas (Diploma of Higher Education) was awarded.

Currently, the specialized professional studies can be transferred as a part of Master’s degree studies. The qualifications obtained after completion of specialised professional studies in the field of pedagogical studies are comparable to non-degree granting studies.

The Master’s degree may also be awarded after completion of integrated long-cycle (vientisosios) university studies, which combine the 1st and 2nd cycle of university studies. Traditionally, these studies are offered in several fields of medicine, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, law, and religious studies. Applicants to the integrated long-cycle studies are required to have a brandosatestatas or equivalent qualification. Workload of the programmes is 300-360 credits. After completion of the studies Magistro diplomas (Master’s diploma) is awarded.

In previous years, following national legislation, after completion of integrated long-cycle studies only a title of qualification, for example teisininkas (lawyer), gydytojas (physician), veterinarijosgydytojas (veterinary surgeon), vaistininkas (pharmacist), but not a Master’s degree could also have been awarded. In such cases, Aukštojomokslo diplomas (Diploma of Higher Education) was issued to the graduates.

3rd cycle

Applicants to mokslodaktaras (Doctor of Science) degree or menodaktaras (Doctor of Arts) degree studies are required to have a Master’s degree or a comparable qualification. The purpose of doctoral studies of science is to prepare scientists who would be able to independently conduct research and experimental (social, cultural) development work, and to solve scientific problems. The purpose of doctoral studies of art is to prepare artists researchers who would be able to create, interpret and develop research based on art practice. Duration of doctoral studies is usually of 4-6 years. After completion of the studies Daktaro diplomas (Doctoral Diploma) is awarded.

In 2000-2009, following national legislation three types of the 3rd cycle studies were as follows:

  • doktorantūra (doctoral studies), studies leading to a research degree, lasting a maximum of 4 years;
  • rezidentūra (residency) studies of Medicine, Odontology, and Veterinary Medicine to prepare specialists for practical activities and leading to a professional qualification (3-6 years nominal duration). Residency studies are committed for the practical training of medical doctors, veterinary surgeons and dentists. Since 2009 residency belongs to a non-degree granting studies (please, see the paragraph on non-degree granting studies below);
  • menoaspirantūra (art studies) designed for the preparation of teachers in higher education institutions in the field of arts and for specialization of artists. Such studies led to a menolicenciatas degree (80 credits required, please see the paragraph on credits below). Following national legislation, last students of such programmes graduated in 2012.
Non-degree granting study programmes

Holders of higher education qualifications are eligible to such programmes. The programmes can be provided by colleges and universities and do not lead to a degree. The aim of programmes is to prepare students for independent professional practice or to upgrade professional qualification. To this type of programmes belongs:

  • programmes in pedagogical studies (pedagoginėsstudijos).

The system of national credits was legally embedded in 2000. One credit corresponded to 40 relative hours (or to one week) of student’s work (in classes, laboratories, independent work etc.) or to approximately 1.5 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits. The average workload of full-time studies was 40 credits per study year.
