Dear Colleague,

I hope all is well with you in these unpredictable times. I am writing to provide you with an update concerning the COVID-19 situation in Lithuania and in our institution as well.

Lithuania is still in a state of lock-down to prevent and slow down the spread of the coronavirus. Due to this, access to the University will – most likely – not be permitted until after Easter. We are however continuing all activities online so as to maintain our academic calendar to the greatest extent possible.

The university staff and students are currently working from home and we at the International Office are proceeding with nominating students and informing students about their mobility options for the fall semester. Even though the situation is uncertain we still hope things will be back to normal by August, and that we will be able to send and receive students as usual.

Sincerely,

Inga Kibirkštienė

Erasmus Coordinator
