The evaluation and recognition of foreign school-leaving certificates and higher education qualifications is carried out by the Lithuanian Centre for Quality Assessment in Higher Education (“SKVC”) or appointed higher education institution.

KVK has a right to evaluate and recognize applicants’ foreign qualifications therefore assessment of foreign qualifications will be carried by KVK as part of study application evaluation.

Please note that applicants are required to pay first year tuition fee in advance before the beginning of studies and will need to send transfer receipt to the International Relations Department.
