In 2012, there were 57 students from India enrolled in Lithuanian colleges which increased to 224 in 2013.

According to statistics gathered by the Study in Lithuania department, in 2014 the only country which surpassed India in the number of students in Lithuania was Belarus (1617 students).


In 2015, the QS World University Rankings published a list of the best universities in emerging Europe and central Asia. Four Lithuanian universities made it to the top 100.

Ilona Kazlauskaite, head of higher education programs unit in Lithuania told the TOI, “Indian students are sincere, diligent and very hard working. Their presence in our universities is raising the bar of excellence. Lithuania is known worldwide for its expertise in laser technology, agricultural and medical sciences, engineering and courses in art. Indians are now among the top 5 countries as far as the origin of our international students is concerned.”

Kazlauskaite said that Indians are coming to the country to study because “the quality of education is among the top in Europe while living costs and tuition fees are tremendously cheap compared to UK”.
