Ranked in QS World University Rankings 2018 as a leader in the country by its internationality, VMU is the only public higher education institution in Lithuania and one of the few in the region where a comprehensive liberal arts education is imparted.

As a reflection of global academic trends, more and more lectures (separate courses and even whole study programmes) are taught in English by professors from abroad.
VMU works with many universities and scientists around the globe, implementing projects, student and employee exchanges, and improving our study and research system. It is an international and multilingual institution that continuously develops global networks and intercultural dialogues, participates in international scientific, academic, and social projects, encourages lecturer and student mobility, and promotes dialogue and tolerance.
