I am happy to have chosen KTU. In an European country, I am studying away from my family, my own country, without feeling that I am alien. I am very glad with the teacher and student associations, they understand and help us. And I am happy that KTU allows us to pay the same amount of tuition fee as Lithuanians. It is both cost-effective and a good education for me.
