Vilnius Business College is Growing up by Number of International Students! 

We would like to announce that we have a new position in VVK – international students managers, which will helps for our abroad students to get involved faster!

Bahdan Zhuikou will interact with Russian-speaking students, and the integration of English-speaking students will be handled by Dr. Keisha LaRaine Ingram.

“The role of the international students manager for international students helps me to empathize more with the student, to think about what help he may need. It seems to me that there is a need to build communication with each other and give students all the help they need. When they start studying in our college, they enter a new stage of life: a new country, a new routine, a life without parents. I want to help students achieve important goals, ” – commented on Mr Bahdan Zhuikou on his new position.

“I want to encourage international students to get involved in studies and college, new things, because studying definitely gives a new perspective on people’s language, country, culture, way of life, and most importantly – learning in an international environment. I hope that our students will find inspiration here, make new friends and make connections “, dr. Keisha LaRaine Ingram.

So what kind of help will get students from abroad?

  • Provide targeted advice about the pandemic, in particular, those issues that relate  to the arrival rules to Lithuania, accommodation, health and well-being.
  • Consistently present information, events and news concerning studies in a clear and accessible manner through a dedicated Facebook group, Instagram, webinars or Zoom meetings.
  • Webinars that support and assist students through the pre-arrival preparations stage and other digital media content that positively preserved their mental health and wellbeing before real-time (contact) or online studies start.
  • Organise final year graduate training placement programmes with VVK business and social partners for final year graduating international students.
