Lithuania is the southernmost of the three Baltic states – and the largest and most populous of them. Lithuania was the first occupied Soviet republic to break free from the Soviet Union and restore its sovereignty via the declaration of independence on 11 March 1990.
The Lithuanian landscape is predominantly flat, with a few low hills in the western uplands and eastern highlands. The highest point is Aukštasis at 294 metres. Lithuania has 758 rivers, more than 2 800 lakes and 99 km of the Baltic Sea coastline, which are mostly devoted to recreation and nature preservation. Forests cover just over 30% of the country.
Some 84% of the population are ethnic Lithuanians. The two largest minorities are Poles, who account for just over 6% of the population, and Russians, who make up just over 5%. The Lithuanian language belongs to the family of Indo-European languages.
The capital, Vilnius, is a picturesque city on the banks of the rivers Neris and Vilnia, and the architecture within the old part of the city is some of Eastern Europe’s finest. Vilnius university, founded in 1579, is a renaissance style complex with countless inner courtyards, forming a city within the city.
The Lithuanian president is elected directly for a five-year term and is active principally in foreign and security policy. The unicameralLithuanian Parliament, the Seimas , has 141 members.
Lithuania’s most famous culinary export is perhaps cold beet soup. Potatoes also make a regular appearance on menus, popular dishes being potato pancakes and Cepelinai – potato dumplings stuffed with meat, curd cheese or mushrooms.
Professional qualifications acquired in Lithuania are recognized abroad. Besides, our country has signed agreements on academic exchanges with 16 countries around the world. Each year over 1,000 students and teachers leave for studies or internships abroad.
Public schools of higher education use Lithuanian as a language of instruction, but other languages are also possible if a curriculum is linked to another language or if classes are held by foreign teachers, or if studies are carried out under study programs for foreigners or in case of academic exchanges.
Lithuania benefits from its position in Northern Europe as a trading hub. Since its adhesion to the Europe, the market place is growing up quickly and offer great opportunities in the Capital, Vilnius. Technology and engineering are some of the most fruitful career choices in the country.
Lithuania has many historic sites and is full of culture. If you want further information on accommodation visit http://www.metroroommates.com/state_rentals/lithuania_rentals.asp. Alternatively view the accommodation provided by the university you choose to study.

MOOCs are providing opportunities to, and issuing challenges for, the higher education system left, right, and center. This infographic from the Parthenon Group identifies four strategic considerations higher education leaders must address when it comes to MOOCs.
- Credit for MOOCs will fit into established processes already embedded in post-secondary institutions
- All MOOCs are not the same – different plans work for different students and institutions
- Introductory courses tend to generate surpluses, exactly where MOOCs may be most prominent
- For highly differentiated institutions and programs, MOOCs are a “marketing nirvana”
