Important Information for the Upcoming Semester

Dear students, we are happy to meet you soon at the SMK University of Applied Science campus! Therefore, we would like to give you a bit of information regarding the beginning of the semester.

TRP Processes and Semester Commencement

We are aware that many of our international students are in the final stages of the Temporary Residence Permit (TRP) process. The semester will commence on the 5th of February. Here's how the plan unfolds:

  • Temporary Online Access: For those awaiting the TRP, we invite you to join your lectures online until your TRP is granted. We understand the importance of keeping up with your studies, and this measure ensures you don't miss out on valuable learning opportunities.
  • Transition to Campus: Once your TRP is issued, you must come to Vilnius and start your studies physically on campus.

Start of the semester

The studies will start on the 5th of February.

All the necessary information regarding the schedules will be given during Orientation Week.

Orientation Week and Beyond

We want you to feel at home in Lithuania. As part of our commitment to your well-rounded university experience, we have planned an Orientation Week and various engaging events throughout February. These events will help you connect with fellow students, explore the city, and immerse yourself in the vibrant culture of Vilnius.

Stay tuned for further updates on the schedules and events. We are here to support you at every step of your academic journey, ensuring that your time at SMK is not just about education, but about making lasting memories and friendships.
