Well, what could I say about my internship at LTVK in Klaipeda… Actually, I would not have words to describe how I have felt these months. It is true that before coming I was afraid to leave my family and friends… In short, to leave my comfort zone and develop as a person. Living away from home was an exciting experience, but at the same time it created insecurity for me to know how I would be here, in a different country where I did not know anyone and had to start from scratch. But for me, expectations have exceeded reality. People are very sociable and I have felt welcomed from day one. Therefore, from the day I arrived, I decided to make the most of this experience. Thanks to each of the people I have met, talks, events, workshops … and especially to my mentor, Samanta, for making me feel at home. Thank you for making each moment something unique, for brightening my days and making me so happy. This opportunity has made me learn a lot about myself and about others. Now I keep these memories deep in my heart. A part of me stays here.
Hi, I am an Erasmus student in Lithuania Business University of Applied Sciences. And my Erasmus experience was very good and I really enjoyed to be here. The teachers were very helpful and really tried to teach us. I think you should come here definitely. 🙂
This is my second Erasmus but I can say the best Erasmus I felt like myself in my home and I felt so comfortable I met great people great teachers and friends. I loved Lithuania Business University of Applied Sciences, staff and also the dormitory with amazing view to the sea!
My Erasmus experience at the Klaipeda Business University of Applied Science was great! The lectures Marketing, Image of organization, International Business and Basic of Communication were quite interesting and all lecturer had a broad knowledge. For Basic of Communication we had an Expert from the UK. There is also enough time to travel through Lithuania and the rest of the Baltic. An advantage of the small port city Klaipeda is the beach and the Curonian Spit. A big thanks goes to our mentor Samanta Štraupaitė, she did everything to make my Erasmus time memorable!
Klaipeda, Lithuania … Firstly the thing that surprised me the most was the beach, just because I was not at all expecting that kind of beach here, the sunset is the best, even it will be cold there I wanna go anyway. The city of Klaipeda is really beautiful, because of the architecture and it is really clean.
It is a little difficult to understand some people like the oldest, because they do not speak English, but at the same time it is a challenge for all of us, because we need to talk with each other, so we need to get another way to explain and learn other languages too.
I am enjoying this experience too, because I can pursue my dream of traveling to a lot of countries, mainly Poland and Czech Republic, Latvia, and improve my English and myself too.
The Erasmus program in Klaipeda is exciting and good organized. When we all arrived in Lithuania our mentors helped us to find our dorm easily and they welcomed us very friendly.
All mentors keep us busy with different kind of activities. In addition, there are a couple of organized trips or events during weekends. Our dormitory is well located. Our University is in walking distance of the old town, so we also have a lot of shops around to buy food or whatever you need. The best thing is, we can reach the beach by bus within 10 minutes or by ferry (maybe 30 minutes by walking to the ferry). Furthermore, we have a park near our dormitory where we can climb in the trees. Or others like to have a run in this park which is beautiful and when you go a bit further you will find an unexpected huge and nice forest. Of course, Klaipeda has more opportunities for staying busy.
All in all, I had a lot of things to do during our studies.
I enjoyed and learned too many different things while having internship. All employees were very kind and sincere to me, i felt like have a second family here.University location is at the Old Town which is heart of the city. I had amazing times on Old Town and had amazing memories . Definetely will visit this city again!
LTVK is a great university with nice staff. Also Klaipėda is a nice city to be in. I’m glad I completed my trainership there. Everybody was so kind, friendly and helpful. Now I have good friends, memories and experience.
One of the most beautiful schools I would recommend for Erasmus Program. Teachers and staff are very friendly and sincere. All Erasmus+ students will be very advanced in education.
Erasmus was magic travel which made our dreams came true, Erasmus program gave us a chance to come to Europe, meet international students from all over the world.
Lithuania Business University of Applied Sciences şehrin merkezinde ver çok rahat çünkü şehirdeki bir çok yere yakın. Hemen hemen hergün okuldan sonra Old Town’da kısa yürüyüşler yapıp , herhangi bir kafeye girip lezzetli bir kahve eşliğinde stret atabiliyoruz.
We learned a lot of new things during the lectures and I am sure that it would be helpful for us in our business career. If you are planning to study in Klaipėda, I can truly say that you won’t regret studying here.
When I applied to Erasmus Staff Mobility for Teaching in 2020, I received invitations from 2 Universities and I preferred Lithuania Business University of Applied Sciences. The reason I chose it was that Samanta responded quickly to all my questions and offered solutions. Due to the pandemic, I was able to attend the staff week in May 2022. I had a very good week with over 30 academics from 10 countries. First of all, I would like to thank all the Lithuania Business University of Applied Sciences family, especially Samanta, who made this organization very nice. I will never forget this week full of training, excursions, lunch and dinner meetings for the rest of my life.
p.s. “I love Klaipeda.”
The staff week held in Klaipeda was my first experience. I have been to many many partner visits, conferences or small partner gatherings before but the staff week was the first one I have attended. I should specify that this organization of LBUAS, their management team and international office coordinators and staff has raised the bar of that kind, and I will be looking forward to see similar successful organizations like that.
I would like to express our satisfaction for everyone at LBUAS to make this week memorable, full of network and collaboration opportunities. It was fully and well integrated with academic, social and cultural aspects. Finally, I would like to specify that there is a warrior in every institution, who stand front, acts as a choirmaster of a perfect team, that was Samanta Štraupaitė. Many thanks for all the efforts she made to make this week well organized. And many thanks to the Management Team of LBUAS who hosted this week perfectly.
It was a pleasure for me to be with you as a colleague in Erasmus staff week. It was an unforgettable week for me. I have collected many beautiful memories. I also provided a lot of useful information for my academic life. Everything was awesome.
With all my heart thank you for everything. And also thanks to Lithuania Business University of Applied Science for hospitality.
After more than two years of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, the Erasmus+ staff mobility in Klaipeda was the perfect occasion for me to reconnect with colleagues from all around the world. Lithuania Business University of Applied Sciences provided me with a priceless opportunity to participate in a learning and teaching approach exchange. I can say that I gained new perspectives and a sense of belonging to a global community as a result of my mobility experience. Developing international abilities and widening the scope of teaching strategies and methodologies are only just a few of the advantages I’ve gained. I’d like to express my gratitude to Lithuania Business University of Applied Sciences and the International Relations and Projects department for organizing such a fascinating social and intellectual experience, and even more presented me with the chance to discover Klaipeda and Lithuania itself. This staff mobility is a desirable outcome for any professor, teacher, lecturer, Erasmus+ coordinator, or administrative staff who wants to be a part of a program that connects people and communities, shares principles and ideas with people from all over Europe and beyond.
From my side, well… no words will express the kindness and grateful to all of you. Without exceptions, you will be welcome to our university any time. Special to Samanta… ONE CLAP for the organization, TWO CLAP’s for the amazing work and we CONTINUE TO CLAP for the amazing week and happiest moments that you give to us all!!!!!!
I join my colleagues in thanking you for the amazing Staff Week! The event was flawless organized and managed to perfectly balance academic discussion and networking activities. Hope to see you and all my new colleagues soon!
Thank you very much for working so hard to organise such a fantastic event. I really enjoyed it and had a lot of interactions with participants from a wide range of countries and backgrounds. These would not be possible if without Samanta’s wonderful work and efforts. I know many think the same.
Dear colleagues! First of all many thanks to Samanta for well organized week! It was a pleasure to establish a new academic ties!
I have attended Erasmus Staff Week between 02-06 May 2022 at the Lithuania Business University of Applied Sciences. In this way, I had the opportunity to meet the beautiful people of this beautiful country. The city of Klaipeda and the University were amazing and everyone hosted us very nicely. We had a very well organized program in a modern and professional educational institution and met colleagues from different countries. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Lithuania Business University of Applied Sciences and recommend this institution to all international professors and students.

Dear participants I would like to thank Samanta (and the Lithuania Business University of Applied Sciences) for a hosting this well organised and very interesting and really unique ERASMUS week. All the best for you all, and greetings from Madeira, António Almeida.
I chose to study at the Lithuania Business University of Applied Sciences, in Klaipeda for two Erasmus exchange programs because I wanted an excellent education and they provide one of the best quality and flexible education in Europe, during my first semester abroad in 2021, we had an expert from the United States and all our professors were incredibly professional. Klaipeda city was an obvious choice because it is so beautiful and architecturally unique—not to mention that the city has a sea! In Lithuania, people do not engage in small talk and are comfortable with silence. It is one of the countries where I feel at home because nobody judges me there.
