International relations
 

The process of integrating international and intercultural dimension into teaching and learning at the LMTA has developed into dynamic process of internationalization. This process of change is supported by students and teachers mobility, international projects, intensive courses, joint curriculum development, joint artistic and research activities. Academic mobility is the prioritized activity. Every year about 40 teachers go abroad for teaching visits, and about 10-15  for training. More than 70 guest teachers, artists and professors give lectures, seminars, workshops and masterclasses for LMTA students.
