International Relations Office

Many jobs now involve an international aspect. To better prepare the students for the new global marketplace we are building in an international dimension into courses through a series of links with other higher education institutions and business enterprises across Europe.

Vilniaus kooperacijos kolegija has a big and increasing number of partnerships, supporting students exchange and staff visits, as well as aid, technical assistance, curriculum development and research activities.

Every year more and more students and teachers go abroad to study or train. Also VKK has an increasing number of incoming students (during a year foreign students make 5% of all students’ number) and lecturers/staff members from partner institutions. According to the number of the students send to studies abroad under Erasmus programme in VKK is advanced among other Lithuanian higher schools. Networking and cooperation are essential in our internationalization.
In VKK there are carried out international students’ exchange and internships. They provide with the best opportunities in order to get to know other cultures, improve language skills and provide with some advantages for future employment perspectives.

Internationalization is treated as integral part of the Vilniaus kooperacijos kolegija broader mission and it is clearly stated in the strategic development plan. Therefore in the context of national and international projects we are bettering intercultural/cross-cultural competences of our academic society and prepare new study programmes in foreign languages.
VKK concentrates all human and material recourses on adaptation of European dimension to teaching and learning activity. It’s impels the involvement of students and staff to international activities.
