Tetiana Pashko, Master degree student from Ukraine, studying at Mykolas Romeris University’s (MRU) joint master programme European and International Business Law agreed to answer some questions about her studies in Lithuania:

Why did you choose to study in Lithuania?

So, I decided to take this chance and make a challenge. Additionally, higher education institutions of Lithuania are actively involved as part of several international programs and agreements with Ukrainian universities, the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Lithuania offer several scholarship opportunities to foreign students.

Gulnara Taghiyeva, Master degree student from Azerbaijan, chose joint master study programme European and International Business Law at Mykolas Romeris University. She agreed to share her experience about studies in Lithuania:

What influenced your decision to come to study in Lithuania the most?

Gulnara: I was working in the sphere of contracts and faced a lot of issues related to taxes, business law and understood that I have gaps. Therefore, I decided to continue education and take masters. My main aim was to find a programme in international commercial or business law. After search in different study portals I found International and European Business Law program in MRU. Initially coming to Lithuania was not my goal, as I wanted to study in Germany, but found the program which exactly reflected my idea on perfect international business law program in Lithuania. Also double degree proposed by this programme was a great plus and strengthened my intention to study here. I also was honored with State scholarship and was touched that Lithuanian government found me as prospective student. So after taking some thoughts I decided that studying in Lithuania will be the best option for me. Continue reading

Maybe it is the reason why a famous French philosopher, writer, political theorist, educator of 18th century J. J. Rousseau drew inspiration in the region of Savoy (including our town Chambery). Here, between the clouds and breathtaking nature, it seems that you can breathe in more truth about the surrounding reality. Continue reading
