CAREFUL! All students at Vilnius University can participate in the Erasmus+ programme, but the university`s policy is not to select students to study abroad in the last semester of the last year. The main reason is the tight schedule to complete the Erasmus+ study before defending your thesis. In most cases, there is no way to get a transcript from the host university before the end of the semester at Vilnius University. To find out if you can apply as a bilateral student at Vilnius University, you should contact the international office of your home institution. You must apply through your home university. Local procedures and deadlines vary from one institution to another.

This is a list of important things that you should know why a DSP card can be useful to you: it is necessary to have access to the services of the university library; it is the best proof of your identity as a student at the university itself (especially during exams); It gives you different discounts in theaters, cinemas and many other services and purchases; It offers discounts for public transport in the largest cities of Lithuania and travel between cities and municipalities by bus or train. The LSIC price for a semester or two is 6.00 EUR. Get your LSIC: you can register on the LSIC system online under www.lsp.lt/en as soon as you receive your admission notice from Vilnius University, although you can only order your LSIC after the university has registered your data in the system. This normally happens in the second week of August, so don`t worry beforehand. The entire procedure for obtaining your LSIC is listed on the website of the Vilnius University Student Representation vusa.lt/lt/vu-student-identity-card. . . .
