LSMU Ambassador Programme

  • About Programme

    The goal of the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences (LSMU) Ambassador Programme is to involve international students into a voluntary activity aiming at promotion of the LSMU in foreign countries.

     LSMU Ambassador’s functions are as follows:

    • Consult those who are interested in studies at the LSMU and share his/her experience of studies at LSMU and life in Lithuania.
    • Together with the University representatives participate in the University “Open Days” organised by the LSMU International Relations and Study Center (TRSC). The participation is coordinated with the student's learning process, taking into account the classes and assessments timetables.
    • Participate in the LSMU Ambassadors’ meetings every two months. The meetings are organised and conducted by the LSMU TRSC employee who is responsible for the LSMU Ambassador Programme.  During the first meeting, the LSMU TRSC activities related with international students’ studies and the activities of the Ambassadors as well as their implementation order are to be presented to the newly selected Ambassadors. During the first meeting the Ambassadors’ expectations are also considered and personal Ambassadors’ cards are delivered for the Ambassadors. During the later meetings the Ambassadors are to be provided with the relevant information and the activities performed by the Ambassadors and the results of the activities are discussed.

     Benefits for the Ambassador:

    • Development of leadership, organizational, communication, and interpersonal skills.

    Coming to study to Kaunas was an opportunity and a challenge in one. Looking back after living here for more than three years makes me smile. Of course there were some obstacles to overcome but they are outweighed easily by the many international friends who have become my family. Abstract medical concepts have become clear thanks to the problem based learning approach applied at the University and the country has changed from "somewhere in eastern Europe" to a place worth living in.

    Kaunas and the LSMU has been my home for the past 3 years. I can confidently say that my time here has been more than memorable in fact it has been life changing. The University and the city like many other things in life are at balance. The cold winter is made better by the memories of that gone golden autumn, the long (sometimes never ending) lectures are made bearable by the smell of that lasagne from the canteen you will go to later, or quiet early bus journeys to classes that are made more entertaining by the amazing bunch of people you meet in Kaunas.

    I believe that the LSMU has made me a more confident and independent individual. It has opened the doors that I had never thought could be accessed. Most importantly, I'm in love with what I'm studying right now. There is a lot of practical experience as well as many placement opportunities especially for me, a Sri Lankan. Because graduating with a European degree allows me to work not only in my country but also in Europe. Finally, the most important thing for me about the University is the chance to grow as a person as well as develop academically.

    Studying medicine at the LSMU gives you not only an opportunity to become a doctor but also to live in a new environment, see a different culture, learn a new language, and interact with people from all over the world. Besides you can travel around Europe during your holidays. Make your own 6-year-long adventure!

    Being an international medical student at the LSMU is very challenging, interesting and sometimes even stressful. However, it is highly rewarding especially knowing what you’re working to. If you study hard and want to learn, you can fulfil your dream of becoming a good doctor. Studying in Lithuania has given me many opportunities to meet new people with different ideas, values and views to life from various parts of the world.

    University gives an opportunity to study and helps with studies in different ways. What I like most is that we have studies in cycles, which allows me to focus on one subject in a period. I have also lots of practical work with patients and different cases which give me lots of experience. All this makes me feel confident about my future as a dentist.

    I have always known that I want to become a veterinarian but to move abroad was a big decision for me. Today I am so happy I decided to move across the Baltic Sea to fulfil my dreams and I am still discovering advantages of studying abroad. The biggest advantages of the LSMU are that we can study in smaller groups and always have a chance to consult the professors. Besides, Kaunas is an absolutely charming city with lots of fantastic food and a great nightlife. I can highly recommend you to apply for your future education at the LSMU.

    LSMU is inspiring not only because of its teaching system but also due to the opportunities it provides. With a wide access to resources, hands-on training and sports, it has shaped my life to find balance between the studies and social life.

    I enjoy studying here at the LSMU. There is a very good learning atmosphere here and it’s a great place to be and make friends. We always find a way to communicate and have fun. Learning here is not only hard work but also fun.

    Studying at the LSMU is a great experience. The University provides tools necessary to develop skills and obtain knowledge in various areas in life. Students have their own voice in the educational process and professors are nice and friendly. Being an international student gives me the possibility to meet people from all around the world, learn about their culture, traditions and way of life.

    What I enjoy about studying Odontology at the LSMU is an opportunity and privilege to talk to professors at any time. All you have to do is knock their door, walk into the office and they always welcome you and answer your questions.

    For almost 4 years now, the LSMU as an institution has treated me with respect, integrity and provided me with good quality problem based learning education. For some it might be a daunting task to move away from the family and friends but, as a student, I can surely say that you will be surrounded by amazing people and in no time you will become a part of the LSMU family.

    I love studying medicine and I am very grateful to the LSMU for giving me an opportunity to do that. It has been a great ride so far. I enjoy interacting with the dedicated staff and a truly special group of students. I also love sushi and there are about 10 different sushi restaurants in Kaunas. I am very happy to be able to talk to prospective applicants and provide any information I can!

    At the LSMU you must strive to thrive. With a good deal of management you can excel at your studies and also engage in abundant activities, which keep you busy all year. Don’t believe me?! Come try yourself!

    Diversity is a key to education. So it made sense to provoke myself into a new dimension. LSMU has taught me about the beauty of a new cultural scene as well as provided me with the substantial education for my future pharmacy career.  I could never imagine living without the experiences I had in Kaunas, LSMU is definitely not one of my regrets.

    While studying at the LSMU I have had best of times and worst of times but the best of times has outweighed the worst of times so far. I have met some wonderful people, talented professors and made some amazing friends. Our study structure is reasonably good so one can find the right balance between social and academic life.

    Studying medicine is a long journey. It is a life changing experience. Studying at the  LSMU does not only help you to fully experience life of a medical student, but it also gives you an opportunity to discover yourself and reach your goals in the best way you can. As a third-year LSMU student, I can honestly say that so far it has truly been an amazing journey and I am glad to be a student of this University.

    The first positive impression was the hospitality and kindness of our new teachers. I didn’t realised that I could meet students from all European countries and discover something new about their life and culture for myself. In the University clinics, I further engaged in scientific activities, which allowed me to participate in many European and world conferences, getting acquainted with the leading physicians from different fields of medicine. Moreover, over the last six years, the University and Kauno Klinikos have made a significant progress regarding educational and technical matters.
