The Director’s Word


Šiauliai state college may be compared to a river.

The College, that started its activity after the reorganization of higher technical and medical schools with several decades of history, continues its second decade of activity unaltered and changed at the same time.

We are constantly expanding the range of options for students seeking college education: we offer over 20 study programmes in the biomedical, social and technological science fields.

We know that students value us for paying great attention to practical skills – all that is discussed in classrooms is tested and consolidated during abundant practices.

We are happy to say that teachers who have the skills to train students the best way possible work here: scientists as well as researchers and practitioners of their field who continuously improve their qualifications.

Teachers from foreign higher schools with which we cooperate, willingly visit us and share their knowledge with students.

Possibilities of exchange programme "Erasmus+” are exploited: students go to Turkey, Portugal, Malta and other countries to study and carry out the practice, academic staff not only teaches, but gains experience abroad as well.

We encourage students during 3 or 4 years to take advantage of every opportunity to learn, experience, grow, excel and not only to study but also to experience the student life, i.e. to enjoy the freedom of choice granted by being young and change the way they find the best for them.

We take care of all our community members, because we believe that in order to achieve the same goals we have to act in unison.

We are recognized not only in Šiauliai region, but also throughout Lithuania.

The increasing number of students from abroad shows that the College is recognized abroad as well.

While enjoying our achievements we do not forget to change ourselves as well, because changes incite the progress.

Taking into account the needs of the market, the advice of the social partners, we improve study programmes and, therefore, we are very proud to say that the employers value the graduates of Šiauliai State College.

Going back to the resemblance of Šiauliai State College to a river we hope to remain as powerful force as the river water stream, able to provide a freedom of choice to a young person eager to learn, to realize one’s own abilities to change and change the world.
