Students who are arriving from highly affected countries are required to self-isolate after their arrival.

If the students of a particular country, planning their Erasmus+ autumn semester studies at Kaunas University of Applied Sciences are unable to arrive in Lithuania until the 30th of September, the mobility is cancelled.

Incoming students who are planning to live in the dormitory of Kaunas University of Applied Sciences are provided with a place to live from the day of their arrival. Students are given the keys on the day of their arrival.
Students who must self-isolate will have to stay in our dormitory and follow all the self-isolation rules. Students who must self-isolate will be provided with rooms with individual entrance, sanitary equipment and kitchen. Students who arrive on the same day might be self-isolated in the same room.
If student is not willing to self-isolate in our dormitory, this period might be spent in a hotel which provides such services (e. g. Metropolis, Europa Royale). Our institution cannot assure hotels providing self-isolation services will have sufficient places for all the people willing to stay there.
Tap water is safe to drink in Lithuania.
During the self-isolation period, students will be provided with one meal per day free of charge. Please inform you mentor if you have special meal requirements.
Where to order groceries?
The Introduction Week will be organized online from the 31st of August to the 5th of September, 2020. Students will receive the programme via email.
If several students study the same subject and at least one of those students must self-isolate, the classes of that subject are held online during the period of self-isolation.
Students must keep the distance of at least 1 m among each other and the teacher.
Students must wear facial masks or respirators in face-to-face classes. If the distance is 2 m and more among people, masks are not mandatory but recommended.
Classes and other venues are regularly ventilated and disinfected.
Disinfectant for hands can be found at the entrances of Kaunas University of Applied Sciences.
International Relations Services, International Coordinators and Study Departments consult students only remotely. If necessary, students who don‘t need to self-isolate can be consulted face-to-face, however, they must wear facial masks or respirators.
Mentors communicate remotely with students in self-isolation. Other communication methods can be chosen with students who are not self-isolating. ESN KK organizes free time activities in the usual way.
These procedures might change at any time due to changes in the country. Incoming students must follow any possible changes.
