This summer Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas is hosting the Baltic Summer University (BSU): a variety of courses to boost professional skills, learn some Lithuanian and other languages, experience different cultures and meet new people. Registration is still open to all courses except in natural sciences and the Summer Internship Programme.
Baltic Summer University at VMU, which opens in July, will offer a variety of summer courses depending on the students’ interests and needs: up-and-coming musicians will be taught by award winning masters and will perform at the closing ceremony of BSU; those willing to understand why the Baltics are the best summer destination and learn about their culture, art, society, politics and economy should choose the Summer School for Baltic Studies. This year, BSU will have guest lecturers from Latvia and Estonia. Next year it will expand its activities to other Baltic countries and move around them for a more immersive experience.
“Vytautas Magnus University has almost 20 years of experience working in the field of Baltic Studies, sharing its experience in world-renowned networks and collaboration projects, as well as attracting people to learn about Lithuanian language and culture at the University’s oldest summer school. Being confident about our excellence in the field of Baltic Studies, we have come up with the idea to convene professionals from other disciplines to Baltic Summer University and its specialized predecessor, Summer School of Natural Sciences”, the VMU Vice-Rector for International Relations Prof. Ineta Dabašinskienė explained.
For those who find themselves fascinated by the fact that the Lithuanian language is one of the oldest in the world and want to learn it as well as to find out more about Lithuanian culture, the obvious choice is the already well-known Lithuanian Language and Culture Summer Course. Taking this course also provides the option to learn or improve skills in English or German. There is no better way to do this than to immerse in a multicultural environment and become inspired by the need to communicate with unfamiliar, fascinating people you are going to meet here. People who want to improve their entrepreneurial skills are welcome to join our Social Media Marketing Summer Course. Finally, if you are thinking about your career opportunities and work-related experience, Summer Internship Programme is tailored just for you.
