During the first week of March Vilniaus kolegija organised annual International Week (IW). This year IW hosted around 40 lecturers from partner higher education institutions and business companies from 20 countries, including EU countries, Albania, Georgia, India, Island, Israel, Kosovo, Serbia and Ukraine. Lectures were organised in all 7 faculties of Vilniaus kolegija. The main goal of the international week is to give possibilities for all the students, who for any reasons do not have possibilities to participate in exchange programmes, benefit from international lecturers’ classes and workshops (“Internationalisation at home”). In addition, several seminars for staff were organised.
During the opening of the IW keynote speeches were delivered by Maria D’Ambrosio and Loredana Perissinotto (Italy) and Shok Han Liu (Iceland). The key event of the social programme of the IW was International Evening, where ethnographic regions of Lithuania were presented by Vilniaus kolegija’s folk dance group “Voruta”. This was followed by presentations of countries, which Vilniaus kolegija’s international students come from.
