Reviews by exchange students

2017/2018 spring semester

"I didn't have any problems with communication, teachers, staff speak English really good. In most of cases they were open minded, willing to help and to offer their knowledge and experience. Atmosphere was really cosy and I felt like a part of academy's society."

Kinga Bartniak, Wrocław Academy of Art and Design

"First of all, the city is marvelous! I really enjoyed the city. My study at the VAA was really interesting! My mentor was perfect, he really helped me a lot and I was sure I can always call him if I need to. Also the professors were really nice and I had a great time. Besides that it was a super interesting way to study, I worked and learned a lot and it was intense."

Lea, Hochschule Düsseldorf

"The difference between French art school and Lithuanian arts school is just huge, we don't have the same way of working at all, it's a very nice experience to know that way of work."

Gil Zinck, École Nationale Supérieure d'Art et de Design de Nancy

"It was an experience that helped me become more mature and see the project with a different eye, develop them in a new way. I learned new ways to see things, and now I can put together the two ways I now know to create something new."

Maria Teresa Vigorelli, Politecnico di Milano


2017/2018 autumn semester

,,Well, I am in painting department. The whole year I felt easy, welcomed and relaxed. Dormitory is near the main building, food and coffee in canteen is good and cheap. Lessons made for erasmus students are of all kinds, so beside my main subject- painting, I could try graphics and felt art. All the teachers were nice and helpful as well as mentors. I also have to mention how wonderful is the city through the day and especially through the night. There is also this great possibility to travel around, Nida was charming!"

Nikola Šušovicová, Academy of Fine Arts and Design Bratislava

,,It was a very nice and inspiring experience that have brought new ideas for my next studies/works (even though I was a bit lost in chaos at the beginning). Also there are very kind and open-minded people and I'm happy I have met them."

Michaela Tkadleček, Academy of Fine Arts Munich

,,I learned a lot here. Academy has good equipment and great mentors."

Natalia Leocho, University of Art in Poznań

,,The structure is pretty good to get works done and there are a lot of possibilities thanks to the laboratories, which have good tools and stuff."
