“Thinking and living differently”

"Studying abroad in Lithuania during Summer session gave me the opportunity not only to broaden my college experience, but also to broaden my knowledge of other cultures around the world. It enabled me to learn, think and live differently, both in and out of the classroom. The memories and adventures that I had in the month I was there are greater than any souvenir I could have ever brought back home with me."

Staying in Klaipėda

We are based in Lithuania's third largest city, located on the coast of the Baltic Sea. Klaipėda is a cultural and business hub that transforms into a resort for the summer season.

You will have no difficulties finding your way around town and enjoying local culture. Over 80% of youth and a fair percentage of the older generation speak English. 

Lithuania is a member of the EU and Schengen agreements, which means you can explore neighboring countries and Central Europe without borders.
