The higher education institutions fall into two types: universities and colleges (non-university higher education institutions). Studies are organized in three cycles: bachelor studies (in universities) or professional bachelor studies (in colleges), post-graduate studies and doctoral studies.
It’s important to note that if you have received your secondary or higher education abroad, you’ll need to receive academic recognition of your foreign qualifications before you can enroll. This recognition will be given if the relevant academic institutions consider that your qualifications generally meet the requirements of comparable qualifications in Lithuania.

Education is compulsory in Lithuania for children from 7 to 16 years of age.
To fully integrate into the local community and avoid any miscommunication, learning Lithuanian is recommended.
