To get access to higher education in Lithuania, foreign qualifications need to be recognised by the Centre for Quality Assessment in Higher Education (SKVC). The recognition process is free of charge and takes at least one calendar month.

You will need to send SKVC a completed application form, secondary school certificates and transcripts, their translations, proof of ID and proof of purpose, which is a letter you can request from us by emailing international@edu.ktk.lt

More information about the recognition procedure, exemptions and country-specific requirements can be found on the SKVC website

Please take note that qualification recognition is not an automatic process. It is the responsibility of the applicant to request recognition by SKVC.

Entry requirements are the same for all degrees.

For your application to be considered, an entry score of 7/10 is required. The entry score is calculated by averaging out your final-year grades, or results in the final examinations (whichever is provided in the transcript of records; if both, whichever grade is higher) in the following subjects: Mathematics, English, Physics/Chemistry/IT. If your transcript includes letter grades or grades in a non-decimal grading system, their equivalents in the Lithuanian decimal system will be established during the recognition and admission process and used for the calculation. 

If English is not your first language, you need to provide evidence of your ability to understand and express yourself in English for academic purposes. We require the following scores from international English examinations.

Academic IELTS  4.0 overall
Pearson Test of English (Academic) 38
