The center would focus on deepening students’ Lithuanian language skills and would also conduct research and implement projects related to the Baltic studies, Vytautas Magnus University said in a press release.

The Center of Baltic Studies in Ukraine was established on the basis of a memorandum of cooperation signed by Vytautas Magnus University and Taras Shevchenko University.

“Our university will continue to support the activities of the Center of Baltic Studies, we help and will continue to help with the development of the programs of studies and reference materials, will provide full assistance to scientists and researchers, and share relevant information related to the Baltic countries, culture or companies,” the press release quoted Juozas Augutis, rector of Vytautas Magnus University, as saying.

Taras Shevchenko University has been offering the Lithuanian language studies since 2019. In 2020, it launched a bachelor’s studies program covering the Polish language and literature, as well as the English and Lithuanian languages.

Approximately 30 students are studying the Lithuanian language at the Kiev-based university at present.
