Programme overview

Being overwhelmed by many security issues in public policy, it is more important than ever to understand this dynamic process, to be able to assess emerging risks, threats, and their management mechanisms. A successful experience in organising political study programmes has allowed the formation of an open and competent team of lecturers and scientists, whose arranged programme provides students with the necessary analytical tools and prepares the experts for the 21st century challenges.

Studies without boundaries – 90 % of study modules are organised online.

In the face of the pandemic we have gotten a chance to prove that we are ready to share our knowledge virtually without sacrificing quality or professionalism. This programme is where we apply our best practices and solutions so you could learn in a way that works for you.

Funding opportunities

All international students automatically become candidates to receive the Scholarship for International Students, which is assigned for first-year Bachelor or Master students with strong academic records and motivation.

The residents of European Union countries and the global citizens of Lithuanian origin can apply for state-funded study places. This means that all the applicants, who fall into one of the aforementioned categories, will participate in the general admission’s competition for state-funded study places and get the chance to study free of charge, depending on their admission score.

Campus life

The main KTU Campus is within walking distance from the city centre. In the campus, university sports halls and courts, dormitories, shops and recreational areas are all nearby. KTU boasts the active student community, with 6 art societies and over 20 students’ organisations. Our students can choose from 100 weekly sports classes, and join one of 20 sports teams. All of this is free of charge.

Over 40 thousand students study in Kaunas, and of these, around 10% are international students. Lush parks, lively squares, cosy cafes and buzzing cultural life make Kaunas attractive not only as a travel destination but also as a place to live. In 2022, Kaunas will become a European Capital of Culture.
