Lithuania is one of the countries traditionally taken as an example of high erudition. On the one hand it is proved by a high percent of population with higher education (4th place in European region). On the other hand it can be proud for the most ancient university in Europe, which is important for Indians who want to get fundamental university education.
Nowadays young Indians are dreaming of getting education in Lithuania, especially in such specializations as medicine, design and international relations. Technical specializations are also very popular among Indian students and they are offered by many English-language programs created specifically for Indians. They include information sciences and nanotechnologies, laser sciences and biotechnologies, as well as other modern sciences.
