Before leaving, a Financial Agreement between an outgoing student and KCFEE must be signed at the International Office. The Agreement foresees scholarship payment terms, size, study period, academic requirements, feedback etc.
Signing the Financial Agreement, it is required to know:
If you still haven‘t got a credit card (eLitoCard issued along with a Lithuanian Student Identity Card is invalid abroad), we suggest to apply to any bank in Lithuania.
It is advisable to have several cards in different banks (in case you loose your card while staying abroad), as well as to have in Lithuania a legally commissioned person to administer your financial matters in unforeseen cases. The Agreement is signed in two copies – one copy remains at the International Officed, another is handed in to the outgoing student.
An outgoing student upon leaving must have:
1. A confirmed and signed Learning Agreement (see Documents).
2. Leaving for an EU country, one must obtain health insurance card from a territorial patient fund.
Medical insurance abroad (form E111) is compulsory to all outgoing students. Territorial patient funds provide a free form E111, which ensures that in EU countries you will get free health care. A more detailed information on E111 insurance conditions is available on the website of State Territorial Patient Fund: http://www.vlk.lt/
In case You are not satisfied with the services provided by E111 insurance form, you may get additional insurance by any private insurance company. In January 2004, EU ERASMUS program coordinator in Lithuania EESF signed an agreement with ADB “Reso Europa”, which applies lower rates to ERASMUS students and professors, however, everyone is free to choose any other insurance company.
Always read carefully appendices of any insurance policy or ask at the insurance company what should be done in the case of illness or accident.
In case of unexpected events:
Always have the addresses of youth hostels in the destination town or town where you have to change means of transport (e.g. train to bus), so that you have where to stay overnight.
It is a good idea to have the address and phone numbers of the nearest Lithuanian Embassy during the whole period of stay.
