Mykolas Romeris University student from Rwanda: “Lithuania has a strong education system”

My name is Peace Esperance Mukanoheli. I come from Rwanda. I was studying Public Relations Management in the Faculty of Human and Social studies at Mykolas Romeris University, Vilnius, Lithuania in 2022-2024. 

Peace Esperance Mukanoheli (MRU student)

Before joining Mykolas Romeris University, I was working at the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village, which is a non-profit organization focused on providing vulnerable and orphaned youth in Rwanda the necessary healing, education and love. 

I decided to choose studies in Lithuania after discussion with a friend. He introduced me to several schools including the MRU in Lithuania. I did some research about the country, found that Lithuania has a strong education system with reputable universities and academic programs. Many institutions here offer courses in English which makes it accessible to international students who may not be fluent in Lithuanian language. The cost of living and tuition fees are affordable compared to some other Western European countries. Lithuanian people are welcoming, food is nice, nature is beautiful and the public transportation is reliable.

I would definitely recommend to study at MRU because studies is affordable and the cost of living is low compared to the other universities of Western European Union, the process of admission is easy and the university help in visa process where you get all the required documents on time and International students office is eager to support at any time to smooth the process before and after joining the University. 

MRU offers their programs in English which is helpful to the international students to pursue their studies. It provides the internship in different countries which help students build valuable contacts and enhance their career prospects without segregation based on gender, race or religion. 

The MRU has well equipped classrooms, library and technology which contribute to a conducive learning environment, all learning facilities/material are on Moodle (the system used by the student and University), the studies are conducted online or in person and the school gives the opportunity to the students to work during the day because the lectures are given during evening and the professors are so helpful and supportive.
