This blog is created by students, for students. What better way to learn about life in UL than from the students who have lived and studied here! Nervous or stressed about moving so far from home? Not sure what Clubs or Societies to join? Don’t know what to pack? Our International Ambassadors are here to help you by writing blogs that answer these questions! They too know how exciting, yet overwhelming, it can be to study abroad, but that’s why they are dedicated to making this an easy transition for you! Here are our current International Student Ambassadors:
Meet Our Student Ambassadors!
Nijo Cyriac, India
Nijo Cyriac from India, In pursuit of Master of Science in Project Management.
I love photography, adventure sports, extra creative activities and most importantly to socialize.

Ieva Girnyte – Sweden
Ieva is one of our literary obsessed Student Ambassadors. You will either find her with a book in hand or a pen so that she can write her own. This is a little about Ieva:
I’m extremely passionate about writing, reading, art, photography and languages. I am currently studying to become a teacher in English and History and can speak three languages fluently: English, Swedish and Lithuanian.
One of my biggest dreams is to be able to travel the world and experience different cultures and their cuisines – as I believe the biggest cultural experience can be found in food.
I am extremely friendly, open-minded and very easy to talk to and always eager to try something new. I love to curl up and drown myself in a good book, and if not – I tend to write one. However, there is nothing wrong with giving yourself some eye-candy with a good movie or series.
One of the biggest opportunities you can ever get is having the ability to mold yourself to be whoever it is that you want to be. Do not let anything or anyone get in the way of being whoever it is you want to be and once you set your goals and motivate yourself to reach them – you will thrive.
