A warm welcome to all the international students joining Kaunas University of Technology this autumn! How exciting to be on the road to the adventure called student life. To make your first days at the university memorable and to help you start your studies smoothly, KTU prepared a Welcome Week programme, beginning on Tuesday, August 24.

“It is interesting how students from different backgrounds are mingling and experiencing different cultures – from food to dancing”, says Malak Bakkour from Lebanon, who has graduated with a master’s in Mechatronics this year.

She is right – live meetings with your peers who are in the same starting position are the best for making lasting friendships. KTU Welcome Week 2021 will provide plenty of opportunities for mingling and getting to know each other and the university better.

From live concerts and orienteering games on campus to Kaunas, Vilnius and Trakai tours, from student organisations fair to campfire evening – there is an event for every taste in the week-long programme.

This week, we recommend not to miss the registration of new students on Thursday and Friday, August 26 and 27. Next week’s Monday and Tuesday are also very important. On Monday, during the fair, you will be introduced to the numerous student organisations functioning at KTU (you may get an idea of what to expect here). On Tuesday, a new academic year opening festival will take place.

Once again, welcome on board. Hope you will enjoy your time at KTU.
