“Pursuing academic excellence together”

“LCC provides a true liberal arts education that equips its graduates to work and study anywhere in the world. My BA gave me a broad foundation in a variety of disciplines, allowing me to experiment and explore my interests. I originally planned to become an interpreter, but ended up falling in love with the teaching profession, inspired by my LCC professors, and was thrilled to come back and complete my MA in TESOL. It was an honor to join a small but distinguished cohort of students and professors pursuing academic excellence.”

According to Lithuanian law, amounts paid for studies (when higher education and/or qualification is obtained upon graduation, as well as doctoral studies and art post-graduate studies) by residents of Lithuania can be deducted from the taxable income and thus decrease the income tax for residents. If a person whose studies are being paid for is under 26 years of age and tuition cannot be deducted from his/her taxable income, the tuition can be deducted from the taxable income of one of his/her parents/foster parents. If a loan is taken to pay for studies, the amounts that can be deducted are the amounts repaid. The tuition is to be deducted in the annual income declaration.

The highest net benefit of this deduction is income tax savings amounting to 15% of tuition. For more information on Income tax benefit visit www.vmi.lt.
