Truly international

Under its roof, LCC International University hosts much of the world. Citizens of more than 50 countries of the world work and study here.

Safe and healthy community

LCC International University is extremely happy to be one of the only in Europe to boast of such an exceptionally diverse community. In the context of the global COVID-19 pandemic, this also poses a number of challenges. The most important thing is to provide a safe and healthy community.

Response to pandemic

After analyzing the current pandemic situation and preparing for any possible recurrence of COVID-19, we will organize the study model differently this year too. We also must require compliance with certain restrictions on non-resident community members.

Students from 50 countries

Different study model

University actions

Covid Preparedness Team

A Covid Preparedness Team (CPV) has been formed at the university that regularly addresses issues related to this extraordinary situation, and has developed a Fall 2020 reopening plan for the ever-changing COVID-19 situation in the country and/or within the university itself. A number of volunteers along with university staff take care of our students’ nutrition and well-being.

Monitoring of information

We monitor the information of the Ministry of Health, the National Center for Public Health, along with the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport and other sources on a daily basis and apply their recommendations on organizing mass events and for the educational process at LCC International University.

Prepared for changes

President of the LCC International University, Dr. Marlene Wall emphasizes that “sociability and community play a vital role in LCC,” but given the current situation, which changes daily, university leadership is prepared for changes in the organization of events and the educational process to ensure the safety and health of community members.

Hybrid model of study

This year students are offered a hybrid model of study, and are able to choose their study model to fit their current situation. Students can study in classrooms with classmates or stay in their home countries and study remotely. During the summer, all classrooms were prepared for safe teaching of students at the university and technologically fitted for the opportunity to broadcast lectures live.

Student housing

In order to provide students with the most favorable and safe living conditions in the residence hall, LCC International University has reduced the number of students living in each room of the university residence halls. However, this change made it necessary to rent additional premises off-site to ensure that students could rest assured of their spot of residence for the semester.

Self-isolation

You need to self-isolate for 10 days and bring a negative COVID test done 72 hrs prior to entry to Lithuania. The test document must be in one of the EU official languages. Antibody tests are not accepted. Expired tests are not accepted.  Self-isolation can only happen on campus.

You do not need to self-isolate if you have had a COVID infection in the last 180 days or were fully vaccinated with an EU-approved vaccine. You need to have an official medical document from the doctor that would confirm the DATE of your infection and that it was diagnosed with a PCR test (not an antibody test). The document must be or officially be translated into one of the EU languages and presented at the border.

During the period of self-isolation, volunteers and university staff will take care of students nutrition and well-being. Students can order food plans from the university cafeteria, as well as order food delivery from other city cafes and even have groceries delivered with help from LCC staff.

Numerous activities will be organized for students who need to self-isolate. Students will be encouraged to use the virtual library and read e-books or choose a physical book that a volunteer will bring and leave at the door of their room.

The university chaplain will take care of the student’s mental and spiritual state, and the university psychologist will  invite them for personal consultations remotely as well. 

For new students

The LCC Admissions Office continues to work with new potential students and their families remotely and actively works to assist in the admissions process. If you have any questions, please contact study@lcc.lt or by phone +370 (46) 310 460 during workdays from 9 am to 5 pm.

The process and deadlines for admission to LCC International University are unchanged. We are currently accepting applications from those wishing to study in Fall 2021.

LCC International University allocates approximately a half a million euros each year for various support initiatives and scholarships to its students. In the face of the COVID-19 crisis, LCC not only did not reduce this fund, but instead was able to significantly increase it. 

DeFehr and Michaelsen centers

The Michealsen Center is closed to students, employees and others for now. The cafeteria serves takeaway food only.

The DeFehr building is open to students and staff/faculty only. No groups, gatherings, or meetings are permitted. The work process is organized remotely.

Evening English Language Institute

We plan to conduct evening English Language courses for students and adults on our premises. However, with the changing situation of COVID-19 in the country, we are also prepared for the possibility to continue organizing courses remotely if necessary.  

STUDY ABROAD / ERASMUS+ / INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE

DO YOU PLAN TO OPERATE AND ALLOW STUDY ABROAD, ERASMUS+ AND INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMS IN FALL 2021? CAN I COME AS A STUDY ABROAD OR INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE STUDENT?

Our plan and hope is to be able to offer our programs as scheduled and run them safely and responsibly as we continue to monitor the evolving situation across the globe. With that in mind, we do take our students’ health and safety seriously and will need to be flexible and responsive to unpredictable conditions in the face of this global pandemic.

1 confirmed but contained COVID-19 cases.

Definitions

Confirmed cases

These cases are the number of people who have tested positive and are in isolation either on campus or off-campus.

Self-isolation

Self-isolation is required for students who come to campus from affected countries. They are required to come and present the results of a negative test and quarantine for 14 days.

Self-isolation also happens for those who test positive in order to separate them from people who are not sick. Such isolation happens with one person per room.

Self- isolation also would be required to separate and restrict the movement of those who may have been exposed to see if they become sick.

Exposed

Please note that only those who fit one (or more) of the following statements during in-person learning are considered to be “exposed” and need to self-isolate: 

  • People that have been living in the same rooms with confirmed COVID-19 case in the last 14 days.
  • People that had direct physical contact with a COVID-19 case (e.g. shaking hands, hugging, kissing) in the last 14 days.
  • People that have had unprotected direct contact (no mask on either party) with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (e.g. being coughed on, touching used paper tissues with a bare hand) in the last 14 days.
  • People having had contact, within 2-meters, with a COVID-19 case with at least one party not wearing a mask and/or for more than 15 minutes in the last 14 days.
  • People who have been in a closed environment (e.g. classroom, meeting room, etc.) with a COVID-19 case for 15 minutes or more and at a distance of less than 2 meters in the last 14 days.
Contained case

When a positive COVID-19 case is isolated and all those who had direct exposure are also isolated.

Uncontained case

When a positive COVID-19 case is made known to LCC officials and there is incomplete information of all interactions in the last 14 days with that positive case. 

  • Potentially Uncontained Case: the designation given to the positive COVID-19 case while contact tracing is happening within 24-hours of being notified as an institution. 
  • Officially Uncontained Case: the designation given to the positive COVID-19 case if, after 24-hours, the contacts are unable to be traced and isolated. An officially uncontained case will raise the campus alert level to ‘Alert Level Red.’
