ACCEPTANCE DATES FOR SUMMER MONTHS ARE DIFFERENT! If you are applying for July and August, please choose the practice days as follows:

JULY: 
from July 1st to July 28th

Disciplines Remarks
The availability of the departments depends on the city. If you prefer a department to the city make sure to choose this option when filling the AF.
Placement in the desired field is not always possible, therefore you must choose 4 different departments. Otherwise, it would mean that you agree to any department if your departments of choice are not possible. Priority is given to students that have already finished the discipline they are applying for.

Social program in Vilnius and Kaunas is a bit different, but CP teams of both cities will do their best for you to have the most amazing experience ever.

Evenings are usually spent hanging out in local cafes and bars, singing karaoke, having movie nights and getting to know Lithuanian culture. There is plenty of sightseeing, visiting museums and galleries. During weekends we provide National Social Program: Upon Arrival Training - National Food and Drinks Party, Seaside trip and a trip to North East Lithuania - our lake region.
