Education information

For those who are aware of the influence of the surrounding atmosphere on the formation of a young person's personality, it will certainly seem tempting to study in Riga with a rich past and unique Art Nouveau architecture. The oldest schools and universities in Riga here have more than a century of history. Study and rest in Riga are remembered for many years.

Students assure that it is easier to enter Latvian higher education institutions than European ones - in addition, the prices for studying in Riga are quite acceptable, and the diploma has European accreditation.

By law, a foreign national arriving on a study visa can officially work 20 hours a week.

The language barrier exists not only in the field of part-time work. Today's applicants need to know that after the recent educational reform, study programs in schools and universities in Latvia are carried out only in Latvian and English.
