For a country of just over two million inhabitants, Latvia has a wealth of both public and private higher education opportunities – 59 universities and colleges. Programmes taught in English language cover a wide pool of courses from engineering, business, social science & hospitality.
We offer the opportunity to study in Latvia for Indian students who can opt for two types of higher education programs – academic and professional (for example translators, bank staff, business lawyers, pilots etc.). University-type higher education institutions offer both academic and professional education, while the “non-university type” institutions provide only professional education.
As foreign education consultants, we recommend higher education in Latvia since it follows the Bologna system and is divided into three levels: bachelor’s studies, master’s studies, and doctoral studies. A Bachelor degree is received after three or four years of study, while a master’s degree is obtained on successful completion of a second phase of academic higher education, lasting one or two years.
Only graduates holding a master’s degree or equivalent higher education diploma may take up doctoral studies. These last three to four years, involving advanced studies, examinations and the preparation and defense of a doctoral thesis. Thus, Latvia offers several educational opportunities to study in Europe for Indian students.
