Careful! All students at the University of Vilnius can participate in the Erasmus programme, but the university`s policy is not to select students for studies abroad during the last semester of the year-end. The main reason for this is the tight deadline for the completion of Erasmus studies before you defend this thesis. In most cases, it is not possible to obtain transcripts of recordings from the host university until the end of the semester at the University of Vilnius.
