The Ministry of Education of Lithuania requires students who received their high school diplomas from different country than Lithuania to have academic qualification recognition.
Academic qualification recognition gives an access to higher education for the purposes of further study in Lithuania.
Starting from January 2018, LCC International University was given a legal permission to proceed academic recognition of foreign qualifications for students who apply to study at LCC.
The Admissions Office is responsible for direct communication with a person seeking recognition of the foreign qualification, the publication of qualification recognition procedures, the formulation and presentation of decisions made, the data processing and systematization, reporting to SKVC.
Applicants seeking admissions to undergraduate or graduate programs at LCC have to submit the following documents:
If an applicant seeks Admissions to a degree program and has an earned qualification required for the program, one has to submit the application for admissions and qualification recognition at the same time. Admissions decision will be made once the applicant’s foreign qualification is evaluated.
If an applicant seeks Admissions to a degree program and yet does not have an earned qualification required for the program, one is given Conditional Acceptance if all Admissions requirements are met. The conditionally admitted student is required to submit the documents for foreign qualification recognition by August 1st. In case the foreign qualification is not recognized, the admissions decision may be revoked.
Note: Admissions Office will not process the application of foreign qualification unless all of its sections are duly filled in and supplemented with a full documentation package.
All the enclosed documents (including your passport) must be originals or copies certified as true by a competent body, such as a notary public, a court official, or the issuing institution. Scanned copies, uncertified copies, or copies attested by non-competent institutions will not be accepted. We reserve the right to request for the originals of your credentials for verification purposes at any time during the processing of your application. The submitted originals can be picked up in our office, returned in a registered letter or you may arrange for a courier service pick up.
All documents issued in languages other than English or Lithuanian should be supplemented with an official translation. A translation is considered to be official when it is bound to a certified true copy of the document in the original language and is attested by the translator’s signature. Documents issued in English or Lithuanian do not require a translation.
Our office recommends legalizing or certifying with an “Apostille” the originals of your educational credentials except documents issued in the countries from EU, EEB, US, Georgia, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine or Moldova.
If all of the required documents are submitted to Admission Office, our decision is issued within 14 calendar days. An applicant is notified about our decision by e-mail within 5 working days counting from the day a decision was issued.
All recognition decisions issued by LCC Admissions Office can be appealed. An appeal should be filled within 14 days from the receipt of our decision. Appeal should be submitted to the Centre for Quality Assessment in Higher Education. Click a link for futher information http://www.skvc.lt/default/en/60/apply/criteria.
