Students for schools

”SMMS has helped me to connect with current school students, put myself in their shoes, and pass on the knowledge I’ve already gathered, facilitating their future paths as students.” – Tomas

Location: Vilnius

Main aim

To introduce Vilnius University to Lithuanian schoolchildren, to help them decide on their study choices, and to facilitate their integration into the university

Target group

Bachelor students and school students

Short description of activities

A three-day camp where students arrive, live,and study as VU students. All participants attend a common part and are introduced to the university, then disperse to the desired faculties, and listen to lectures by lecturers and activities prepared by student mentors.

ECSTRA canvasing event helped the initiative to grow. Students now not only wait for incoming school students but also go to the schools themselves and introduce them to higher education and Vilnius University.
