Hardships of Lithuania's higher education


Some students do not pay a cent for studies in public higher education institutions, while others have to pay full price.
“If you have money, you just pay up and serve the time. Who cares if you are not qualified and don't have the brain for it.”
High variation in the amount charged for tuition, irrespective of how much future earning potential any particular course may give.


“The quality of education does not only depend on tutors, teaching infrastruIf bright students find themselves in the same room with the less able ones, the quality goes down".
The Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) calls such a situation, where one student pays for studies and another does not, discriminatory. The paying student has to work in order to pay his or her fees, consequently missing some classes and being disadvantaged during examination.
Civilized countries only charge full tuition fee to foreign students, not their own (all EU students are treated as home students).
