Vytautas Magnus University

Ranked #77 among the EECA universities and #801-1000 among universities in the world (QS World University Rankings) and following in the tradition of its 92-year-old progenitor University of Lithuania, Vytautas Magnus University is the only higher education institution in the country and one of the few in the region where a wide liberal arts education is imparted.

That means the students can change and organize their schedule freely, minor in one field and major in another, travel abroad on international exchange and get ready for those trips by taking some of the available 30 foreign language courses which never interfere with the specialty subjects.
