Professors of Mariupol State University visited Vytautas Magnus University (Kaunas, Lithuania), where they trained within the frameworks of the " Reconsideration of Regional Studies: Baltic-Black Sea Connection" Erasmus+ project.

Professor Victoria Lysak, the Dean of the Faculty of History, Sergey Pakhomenko, Associate Professor of the International Relations and Foreign Policy Department, academic coordinator of the Erasmus + project from Mariupol State University and Tetyana Marena, Associate Professor of Economics and International Economic Relations Department visited the largest and most prestigious university of the Republic of Lithuania.

They learned how to improve the quality of curricula and the technological component of education, how to build a dialogue and keep students’ attention during the classes, where teachers and students can look for inspiration. In addition, the scientists worked with the databases and electronic resources of the library of Vytautas Magnus University.


Ukrainian professors got acquainted with the educational system of Lithuania during their visit to the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.

“In Lithuania, applicants do not pass entrance exams or analogues of the External independent evaluation, but they enter by the competition of certificates. The number of places on budget and contract forms of education is pretty much the same. Students of the budget form receive a scholarship of around 70 euros. Social scholarships are also paid for the students from low-income families. Students go to lecture at their wish, but it is necessary to attend practical and laboratory classes as well as seminars. If a student fails a test or an exam during 2 attempts, the third attempt to resit an exam is paid and costs 20 EUR,”

– Sergey Pakhomenko said.

The program for the stay of the delegation of Ukrainian scientists in Lithuania also included an introductory visit to the Sejm, a meeting with the Speaker Victor Tasketice and Vice-Speaker Jonas Leitys. The guests were shown in what conditions the Lithuanian parliamentarians work, they were told that the Sejm is open for excursions, and students' Olympiads on history and politics of Lithuania are conducted in the old room.
