"First if all, I was attracted by the description of this study programme. The ability to study variety of subjects, which would provide me with useful experience, was also tempting. The acquired knowledge is already useful in my daily life and personal development. I am very satisfied with my studies; the experience and skills are priceless. Besides, all difficulties are "atoned" by benevolent lecturers, cosy academic environment and good academic performance – by the scholarship. I am sure about the success of this programme and good future prospects for us, the first students of this programme." – Julija Stanaitytė, Third-year student
