Postgraduate diploma (or higher)
1. Master’s and Bachelor’s diplomas or a higher education degree equivalents to them, and diplomas’ supplements.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Lithuanian.
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.
You must take verified copies of the entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
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 certificate is not required.
At least 2 reference(s) must be provided.
Two separate up-to-date references signed by academic referees or researchers from the relevant field of science (one reference must be by the scientific supervisor of the chosen research topic).
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
1. Copy of ID card or passport with indicated personal data.
