SMK priority is to make students feel good. Considering that our students come from practically all of the continents in the world, it is a priority to insure a comfortable and safe environment and support system. The minute a new student inquires about the studies at SMK, he or she will be provided with a personal admissions counsellor, who will timely provide all necessary assistance in applying, arriving and living in Lithuania and SMK. All students have academic counsellors, who help to solve their academic issues that might arise.
It is our aim and continuous commitment to facilitate excellent education experience for our International students. It is International Relations Office Team as well as Mentors’ Team that provide to SMK International students timely support in all matters (e.g. accommodation, academic advising, internship placement search etc.). Our friendly Mentors’ Team is formed from active Lithuanian students, who act a role of “Local Friends” to foreign students, dedicating their free time to everyday life issues of International students and helping them to go through the possible cultural shocks smoothly.
