Victoria: To be an ambassador for your country is a great possibility to represent LSMU. It is really great to work with possible students, which would like to come to LSMU, to answer their questions, help them during their application process and preparing them for the entrance exam. The best part of it is that you are able to support them in such an important decision for their life and make their arriving in Lithuania as nice as possible. During Open days there is a possibility to represent your university and show future students the faculties of LSMU, showing them why it is worth to study at LSMU and why it is a great decision to study at this university.

Nick:  My name is Nick, and I’m a LSMU ambassador for 2 years. Being an ambassador means that we willingly take the responsibility to become the faces and voices of our university for future medical professions students. 

We engage in the activities to promote and lead the future students from the first moment they think about starting studies in the university up to the first steps in Kaunas. 

Seminars, conventions, open days and tours are only a part of the duties of ambassadors where you get to see our university through the young eyes of the future students and their parents, as well as practice your speaking and presenting skills. We lead events, talk and show the future students around the facilities. We mentor the future students till they meet their classmates and the first-year mentors.

With this great privilege comes great responsibility to be the face of LSMU.
