Dear first-year students and community members of Kaunas faculty,

K.Driaunys-642x410.jpgWelcome to the opening of the new academic year! I would like to share my thoughts with the first-year students, which is why we have gathered here. I am sure you are familiar with the idea that learning is for life. Learning for life enables you to gain experience, learn more about yourself and the world, and share the acquired knowledge with others.
The idea that you can contribute to a better world is probably appealing and motivating for everyone. However, valuable knowledge is not acquired in one day; it is necessary to make an effort. But anything is possible if you know what you are aiming for.
 
You are like travellers now: you know the final destination, you have a map and a backpack, which is knowledge that you have already acquired. However, you may still be unsure what else you may have to learn, or which path to take; how your daily routine will change, and whom you will meet along the way.
 
It’s good to know that you will not travel alone on this learning journey, although some challenges will need to be overcome by everyone individually. Either way, everyone will gain experience and follow a unique path. Kaunas faculty community will be there to support you: we will provide knowledge, encourage you, observe how your best qualities are revealed and new skills are formed, how you reach your destination.
 
Wishing you success on this journey, I would like to quote the state figure and writer Benjamin Disraeli who said that "The secret of success is constancy to purpose". I wish you to be persistent with your goals so that we can enjoy the results together later.
 
Once again, congratulations on becoming part of the best university in the country, and welcome to the community of Kaunas faculty!
 
 
Dean of Kaunas Faculty Associate Professor Doctor Kęstutis Driaunys

 Record-High VU Position: University Makes it to the Top 400 World Universities

IVU_QS_400_Naujienoms_EN_1920x1280.jpgn the latest QS World University Rankings 2022, Vilnius University (VU) took a record high position and for the first time, ranked 400th in this ranking.
This is also the highest rating ever achieved by Lithuanian universities in the global ranking of QS universities; therefore, this position is significant not only for the history of higher education at VU but also for the whole of Lithuanian higher education.
“Being among the 400 best universities in the world is a significant achievement for all Lithuanian higher education, testifying to the fact that our country has all the prerequisites for the highest level of international science and studies.
I am certain that we are strong enough to establish ourselves among the best universities in the world and to adhere to the highest standards as they are understood in the international scientific community. However, this requires constant constructive dialogue with the public authorities so that the funding of science and studies allows for the planning of a long-term perspective.
We prove that we can achieve and exceed the set goals, the state must prove that it considers education a priority,” VU Rector Prof. Rimvydas Petrauskas said.
VU has been ranked in the global QS rankings among more than one and a half thousand other higher education institutions for almost a decade, and this time has risen by more than 200 positions in total. First evaluated in 2014, VU ranked 601-650. Currently, being in the 400th position, VU represents Lithuania by shaping high scientific standards, which increasingly contribute to attracting international researchers and becomes a serious competitor to prestigious European universities.
“We are proud of the academic community of Vilnius University. Its efforts strengthen not only the global image of the university but also the image of the city. This time, by being among the top 400, VU has once again proved that it has the energy to grow and create breakthrough ideas,” Vilnius Mayor Remigijus Šimašius said. This year, VU ranked especially high - 135 position - in terms of teaching quality. According to the criterion of academic reputation, rising by 27 positions compared to last year, this year VU ranks 400th, and 434th in terms of employee evaluation.
When compiling QS world university rankings, higher education institutions are evaluated according to a total of six criteria: Academic Reputation, rating of the best institutions in terms of research, Employer Reputation, rating of the best professional training institutions, Citations per Faculty, the ratio of the number of students and lecturers in the departments (Faculty Student), the share of foreign lecturers (International Faculty) and the number of foreign students (International Students). 

Number of cyber attacks increased by 1.5 times during the lockdown in 2020


According to the Association of Lithuanian Banks, phishers caused damage of more than EUR 4.5 million to the Lithuanian population during the past year. This was done by using fraudulent e-mails and messages to tempt people to invest in financial schemes. Meanwhile, a report issued by Risk Based Security revealed that there were over 37 billion records compromised in 2020, representing a 141% increase compared to the number in 2019.

According to Dr Renata Danielienė, lecturer and IT expert at the Kaunas Faculty of Vilnius University and the Cyberthon 2021 competition, the number of cyber attacks is growing every year. This year, their number was further increased by the quarantine, when most companies moved their activities into the virtual space and employees began working from home, meaning that less-protected personal computers were used for professional activities.
