The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Russian.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
The documents must be legalised (Apostille)by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country where the documents were issued. This requirement does not apply for the documents issued in the EU and Belarus, Ukraine.
You must take verified copies of the entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
The accepted student must bring all notary verified documents which were submitted during the application as well as their originals upon arrival or send before:
International Studies Office
You will also need Police Clearance Certificate (non-criminal record) from all countries you have lived before arriving to Lithuania for more than 6 months. We recommend to take Police Clearance Certificate not earlier than 1 month before departure.
If your previous studies have been fully in English and it is marked on your degree certificate or transcript, or noted in a confirmation from the school which confirms that your studies have been fully in English language, additional English test may not be required (the latter is not applied to those who graduated in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, etc.)
If an applicant does not have any official test, online examination may be organised by KTU.
Aging population poses difficult challenges to the health care system, and Biomedical Engineering is helpful in finding solutions for those challenges. During studies the students deepen their theoretical knowledge and develop their research skills for development and improvement of the equipment for medical diagnostics, therapy and health monitoring. The graduates work in the industry of medical devices, research centres, state regulatory institutions.
Top reasons to study at KTU:
1. KTU Biomedical Engineering Institute is internationally famous for creating and application of advanced decisions for health care using electronics, telecommunications and IT growing fields.
2. The programme content is designed to incorporate medical and practical research work in laboratories, and majority of modules are specifically focused on the process of effectively applying technology in medicine.
3. The programme is taught together with Lithuanian University of Health Sciences to ensure comprehensive knowledge of biomedical sciences.

“Successful work at our company requires interdisciplinary knowledge and skills: technical and technologies of medical devices, as well as human physiology and communication. The ability to study independently is very important. Medical devices change and evolve very rapidly, which requires a constant interest and improvement in professional area.” – UAB “Graina”, Director, Arūnas Padvariškis.
“Biomedical Engineering study programme provided theoretical knowledge and practical skills for a successful beginning of work at the advanced company providing and operating complex medical equipment for biochemical laboratories, ultrasonic and X-ray systems.” – UAB “Graina”, Engineer, Vytautas Vizbara, graduate of 2014.
