Double Diplomas programme

The Double Diploma programme is the initiative allowing students to obtain 2 diplomas of 2 different universities (VMU and its partner university) during single study cycle.

VMU, via strategic alliances with certain Lithuanian and international academic partners, offers to outstanding students the possibility to follow a double diploma-programme. It gives them the opportunity to follow part of their program at a partner university and benefit from a complementary education certified by a double diploma degree, recognized in both their country of origin and host country.

The Double Diploma programme offers students the possibility:

  • to spend the first year at their home university, acquiring core knowledge and skills, and
  • to specialize in their field of interest while attending the second year at one of the foreign host institutions.

Credits and examinations completed at the partner university will be recognized by VMU (and vice versa). Provided that both institutions' academic requirements have been met, students of the Double Degree programs on Applied Biotechnology will receive Master of Science degree from both their home and the partner institutions.
