I chose the Neuroscience Bachelor program at LSMU because of the high praise I heard from some of my closest friends and relatives in Lithuania. I went there and was not disappointed with everything from the professional practices to the competent professors and assistants. The first years at the university turned out to be the most special for me. I was super impressed with the genetic research in the faculty and decided to continue researching the brain structure and developmental illness.View more
The Neuroscience department allowed me to work directly with some very knowledgeable people. I had a lot of feedback throughout education and training and guidance that led me to the PhD I am currently working on. This experience was positive for me, despite the few difficulties we all had to face with distance learning in the past years. Nevertheless, I am satisfied and always try to recommend my department for its strengths.View more

I studied medicine at LSMU for two years and the experience has been devastating.
The treatment of students is lousy and dehumanizing. In my case, my mother passed away while I was in second year and the university was not even able to offer their condolences, they only asked me for the death certificate.
Whenever I asked for help because I had to go to the hospital to see my mother, they told me that attending classes is compulsory and that if I wanted to, I could take a year off. That was the only solution they offered me. No psychologist, no chance to miss class, NOTHING.
They have a system made where you must pass all the subjects of each year or you can not go to the next. I know people who have had to repeat a WHOLE year taking only one subject for having failed.
Any problem that you may have as a student will not have the support of the university.
Most of the teachers do not speak English very well, they translate their old power points with google translator and have not been able to adapt to the pandemic.
Some teachings such as learning to make bandages are out of date, the subjects are not very well structured and the Lithuanian subject is a bigger headache than medicine.
Kaunas hospitals are very old and internships there are useless since you don’t know the language and the doctors and teachers don’t care about international students.
As a positive point, I can only highlight the laboratories that are very complete and the practical part of subjects such as biochemistry, where experiments are always carried out.
I hope this review helped.View more
In this university there is a lot of practice, being trained not only in the textbook, but also as a real patient, it is known that practice is often not enough for a compulsory subject, but there are excellent opportunities for it to be integrated into the work of the dominant section. The pace of learning is quite good, and information is a bit hefty, so it’s often difficult to engage in additional activities.View more
I’ve just joined this university. I’m quite happy and satisfied by the studies’ quality and all the knowledge which is given to me. Great atmosphere, new laboratories, friendly staff. I recommend this institution, the best choice in Lithuania for health science studies.View more
This has been the worst university experience for me so far. The teachers and administration are solely interested in money brought in by foreign students. Doctors and academics are extremely rude and unhelpful. The university takes in way more students than they can manage each year with hopes of failing between 5-10% of them. If anyone who is from the UK and interested, my advice would be to go elsewhere; as the course is not taught in English 70% of the time, therefore you will be required to sit an English language test. Also, trying to get GMC approved after you graduate will prove extremely difficult too as you will have to sit a dozen of tests. If you are deciding between this and another, do yourself a favour please pick the latter!View more
I’ve just joined this medical university. I’m quite happy and satisfied by the studies’ quality and all the knowledge which is given to me. Not to mention the fact that university is really welcome for foreign students (this year number increased 70%). Great atmosphere, new laboratories, friendly staff and professors, many leisure time activities which involve students to spend their time efficiently. I honestly recommend this science institution, the best choice in Lithuania for becoming doctors.View more
