The Faculty of Medicine is an active participant in international projects and programmes. You are therefore invited to participate in various exchange programmes. The ERASMUS+ programme is the most popular among students of our faculty. More information can be found here.
Students of the faculty have the opportunity to go to universities that are members of the ARQUS and Coimbra Group university networks. Exchanges with these universities are financed by the funds of the ERASMUS+ programme and take place in accordance with the rules, requirements and deadlines of the ERASMUS+ programme. More information can be found here.
Vilnius University has signed international bilateral agreements with universities in Australia, India, Canada, South Korea, and other countries, and also annually invites students to go to the USA and other countries through the ISEP programme, so you have excellent opportunities to study outside the European Union as well. You can find more information about the possibilities to study abroad through bilateral agreements here; more about the ISEP programme can be found here.
