The annual International Week (IW) is a part of the LSU “Internationalisation at home” policy to bring an international dimension to our undergraduate and graduate students. During the IW, incoming teachers will be assigned to give lectures and/or lead seminars and practical sessions for students from different LSU study programmes based on their offered teaching topics.

The IW participants will also have an opportunity to meet colleagues from other academic institutions to share good practice, learn and get inspired by each other, and build new partnership networks for future collaboration.

Along the teaching programme, the IW will offer a variety of social activities, including:
– guided Kaunas city tour,
– tasting traditional Lithuanian cuisine,
