International Study Transfer

Please note that there is usually no ready-made procedure for such study transfer since the Faculty of Medicine of Vilnius University offers a limited number of new study placements per year in each degree programme. Please contact the International Relations and Programmes office and inquire whether such a study transfer arrangement is possible.
