Higher Education in Lithuania

The Lithuanian system of higher education has undergone profound changes since the early 1990s and the beginning of its democratisation process. The situation is very fluid and rapidly changing. In 1991 and 2000 two Laws on Higher Education were adopted, which reshaped the system according to principles of university autonomy and academic freedom. In line with and even anticipating the standards formulated in the Bologna Process, the 3-tier system of higher education (Bachelor-Master-Doctorate) was introduced. Starting from 1999 - relatively late compared to other Baltic countries - private instutitions started to be established. A national system of evaluation of higher education institutions in being implemented.

The institutions that operate in the Lithuanian higher education system are the Ministry of Science and Education, the Lithuanian Rector's Conference (Lietuvos rektoriu konferencija) and the Science Council of Lithuania.

As of June 2008, in Lithuania there are 21 institutions of higher education: 15 public universities (5 of which are academies) and 6 private institutions. Besides that, there are 16 public and 11 private colleges.
