Information regarding the organisation of studies for exchange students in spring 2021

We appreciate your choice to choose Kaunas University of Applied Sciences for their exchange studies and / or traineeship in spring semester 2021!

As long as you are willing to come to Kaunas during the spring semester, we do not have any restrictions. You are most welcome, and we shall do our best to host you.

Considering the COVID-19 situation the hybrid way of teaching /learning by combining courses in classrooms / labs with arranging studies remotely is the most probable scenario for organizing the study process at Kaunas University of Applied Sciences in spring semester.  However, you should be ready to turn to a virtual way of learning in case of emergency. 

Traineeships are organized following all personal safety regulations and depend on available places at the hosting organisations. 

The Introduction Week will be organized before the start of the spring semester, however, it will depend on the general conditions. More information about it will be announced on our website and sent to you individually.  

It is recommended not to hurry with buying your tickets very much in advance before your trip as the situation might be changing fast. We carefully follow the situation and update information on the website. Also, the Lithuanian governmental information can be found on the website: https://koronastop.lrv.lt/en/
