Ambassador together with the Rector of KSU Prof. Dr. Arūnas Augustinaitis, Chancellor Darius Verbyla, Prof. Dr. Jolanta Zabarskaitė and International Relations Coordinator Dr. Javed Imran discussed the situation of the foreigners who come to study in Lithuania and the problems they face, were looking for solutions that can facilitate the arrival and establishment of foreign students in Lithuania.
KSU Rector Prof. Dr. Arūnas Augustinaitis states: “At present, the University is going through a qualitatively new stage of internationalization. One of the most important areas for international cooperation is India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal – the main countries of the Indostan region. Kazimieras Simonavičius University seeks not only to attract more foreign students, but also to implement talent attraction and international research projects.
It is very important to discuss and find the solutions to the problems faced by foreign citizens wishing to study in Lithuania. Students from India, Sri Lanka and other countries are already studying at Kazimieras Simonavičius University, so we know how difficult is the processes of getting the visa and other travel documents. It is great that we were able to discuss these issues and the possible solutions together with the Lithuanian Ambassador to India. We also discussed opportunities for cooperation with South Asian universities, especially in the scientific and cultural fields.”
