Thus, we decided to meet Ina Katamadze, Master degree student in European and International Business Law joint degree programme with University of Savoie Mont Blanc, France, and ask how does she like it.
Can you tell, why did you choose to study in Vilnius and Mykolas Romeris University?
Ina: After my bachelor studies in Georgia, I was searching for master programs in European universities. I found Mykolas Romeris University at one of the most popular web site. There were presented variety of universities from different countries, but finally I have chosen Lithuania and MRU. Before making this decision I checked and read every possible information about university, its history, achieves, programme, subjects, professors. After that, I was assured that MRU is the most acceptable and the best option for me.
What do you like most about Lithuania?
Ina: I had never been in Lithuania before, so I am also still learning about its history and culture. Here I want to mention friendship between two nations, during Soviet Union times, when there were liberation movements in both countries.
After 5 months living here, I can say that Vilnius is already my city! It is a wonderful city for people, who love nature, variegated culture, artlessness, and quiet lifestyle. Narrow, curved streets, the most valuable historic and cultural sites are concentrated here. In the old town buildings of many different architectural styles are blended. Numerous churches, museums, theatres, green areas, natural reserves, and lakes as well as the combination of old town and modern districts create impressive surrounding. And I feel here really free and secured at any time of day or even night, I haven’t seen or heard about any crime.
Can you share your impression about your study programme, teachers and learning facilities?
Ina: I really enjoy my master’s programme in European and International Business Law, it consists of very interesting subjects. I like the way of studying here, lecturers are great professionals in their field and friendly at the same time. Very often we have guest professors from different countries or local successful lawyers, who lecture in practical way or manage some debates about specific issues.
I enjoy library and its atmosphere, you can study there whenever you want, even at midnight.
My chosen study programme is joint with University of Savoie Mont Blanc, and I am looking forward to spend my third semester living and studying in France! After graduation, I’m going to receive both university’s diplomas.
Ina likes MRU’s library, which works 24 hours
What would you like to tell the other Georgians, who would like to come for studies in Lithuania?
Ina: I would say: “It’s your turn now! You have to try, nothing is impossible! Now you got very interesting and important period of life. Here is time when you have to think about and create your future! Use every chance, develop your academic and interpersonal skills! None of the success would be satisfactory without the realization of real feelings, such as power of freedom, power of independent and power of knowledge!”
