Support to Current SMK Students from Ukraine

SMK Vilnius currently has 12 students from Ukraine. We consider it is our duty to support these students, make them feel safe, and enable them to continue their studies to alleviate their financial and emotional difficulties.

Under the present circumstances, current SMK students from Ukraine have been granted a tuition waiver for the spring semester. Taking into account the needs expressed by the students,  SMK is actively involved in assisting the students in job search bringing together not only the SMK community but also cooperating with our business partners. Our aim is to help our students continue their studies at the SMK, therefore, we are addressing all companies able and willing to offer a part-time job to the Ukrainians studying at SMK.

The SMK community expresses its concern over the recent developments in Ukraine and crimes being committed against humanity.  We convey our solidarity with Ukrainian people by action, support, volunteering, and communication directed to helping Ukrainian people and spreading a message that unity, cooperation, and peace are vital values in today’s world. We brought the SMK community together in Vilnius, Kaunas, and Klaipėda to take part in our initiative “Let’s tie this war up!” We are also contributing to other public initiatives and strongly support Ukrainian people.

SMK provides assistance to its students who experience emotional difficulties related to the developments in Ukraine by offering them free psychological counselling. Please contact Jovita Žibūdaitė, e-mail: jovita.zibudaite@dest.smk.lt or other contacts listed here
