In the fourth event of a summer-long European campaign, a team from De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) is heading to the Lithuanian capital Vilnius, as part of the university’s response to the EU referendum result.
DMU’s #LoveInternational campaign began in June celebrating EU staff and students, and highlighting the university, and the UK, as a welcoming and diverse place in which to live, work and study.
The GREAT Britain campaign, the Government’s most ambitious international marketing campaign ever, is supporting DMU’s activity across the continent this summer, and has already featured the university in its July monthly highlights.
The university’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Andy Collop, leading the team to Vilnius, said: “DMU is a truly global university. Our European engagement provides us with the chance to showcase the friendly and vibrant learning experience which our students enjoy at DMU, in Leicester, one of Europe’s most diverse cities.
“I am delighted to be representing the university in Vilnius, at the fourth event in the series so far.
“I look forward to being able to answer people's questions, and to continue to reinforce the fact that the UK is still very much open to students from all over the world.”

While in Vilnius, potential Lithuanian students, as well as local delegates, will be able to find out more about DMU, and participate in valuable talks about the university’s post-Brexit response, including the new LoveEU Bundle for EU students.
With 80 Lithuanian students currently enrolled at DMU, Lithuania is one of the top five largest markets for the university in Europe.
Jim Green, DMU’s Regional Manager for Europe, said: “These events signal the continuing importance DMU places on its work together with European partners, towards the same common goal of providing the best international education."
A roundtable discussion, including senior delegates from the Lithuanian Government and higher education, will also be held after the main events tomorrow, centring on European education.
A final event will be held in Berlin at the end of August.
