EHU Graduation Ceremony

On June 28, 2024, EHU Graduation Ceremony was held at the University’s backyard. 

This year’s alumni include 108 bachelor’s graduates from programs such as European Heritage, Visual Design, Media and Communication, and World Politics and Economics, and 59 master’s graduates from programs including Gender Studies, Visual Plastic Art, Public Policy, Cultural Heritage Development, International Law, and European Union Law.

The bachelor’s and master’s diplomas were awarded personally by the Acting Rector of the University, Dr. Vilius Šadauskas. The ceremony was attended by heads of diplomatic missions, distinguished guests, and friends of EHU. It opened with the traditional singing of the international student anthem, Gaudeamus, and featured the university’s choir performing three musical compositions a capella during the musical breaks.

This year, the university has summed up the voting results for the honorary award for the twelfth time. The award was given to Aliaksei Siadura, a graduate of the bachelor’s program in Media and Visual Design (2009) and the master’s program in Visual and Cultural Studies (2011).

As a photographer, he has worked on the creation of TV projects and documentary films in Lithuania and Belarus and has launched popular political YouTube channels. EHU students know him as the organizer and long-term coordinator of the EHU media hub (since 2010), as well as a teacher of the basics of cinematography and editing (since 2011). For more than ten years, Aliaksei has been teaching and guiding students interested in media production.
