Practicing finance management in Luxembourg

Internship in Lithuanian Embassy – great start for a diplomatic career

“Participation in any exchange programme helps to develop personality, to look at yourself as if from aside. This alone should be a great encouragement for travelling”, says Ugnė Terentjevaitė, who has graduated from European studies at KTU this June.

Ugnė did her internship in Lithuanian Embassy in Romania.

„Of course, I was scared. I had to go alone into a country where I didn’t know anyone and to live there for three months! It was a great challenge for me, who is used to travel, to participate in projects together with many friends and acquaintances. However, soon I got to know people in the new place and realised that Bucharest is an incredible city. Also, everyone speaks English here so I didn’t have any problems to communicate”, says Ugnė.

The young graduate says that participation in Erasmus+ internship has provided an invaluable experience – she has gained many competencies needed for working in diplomatic missions, improved her English skills, o change of environment has strengthened not only her professional competencies, but also her personality.
