 The Department of Biology offers several options for English speaking students within the Erasmus exchange program:

1. Exclusively in English. The following table identifies these courses as a medical studies courses (the last five courses in the table). These courses are held by the teaching staff of the Department of Biology for medical students, and to these courses may also join the biology students.

2. Exclusively in English if the majority of enrolled students agree to English only. The following tables identifies these lectures with an asterisk “*”. (This concept was introduced because studies of biology at the University of Latvia are generally in Latvian. However, lecturer may hold lectures in English, if majority of the students agree to this.)

3. Lectures in Latvian, with seminars and/or laboratory work held in English. Foreign students study the theory part of the course on their own. Consultations with the lecturer are setup on an individual basis. Intermediate tests and the final exam are to be held in English on an individual basis.

4. Exclusively in Latvian. For foreign students study is possible as individual studies. Consultations with the lecturer are setup on an individual basis. Intermediate tests and the final exam are to be held in English on an individual basis.

 

An asterisk “*” indicates the courses, that are held in English, if majority of Latvian students agree to this.

A plus “+” indicates the part of the course on which lecturer works with exchange student in English, if lectures are held in Latvian.
