Exchanges of students and teachers
Starting from 2006 a remarkable increase in student numbers spending a semester or full year abroad in Europe, USA or Asia has been observed. The University of Latvia becomes even more attractive as a place for studies and research – the number of incoming exchange students, who choose our Alma Mater as their host university is increasing every year.
The most active exchange takes place in the Erasmus+ programme – the UL has signed more than 800 cooperation agreements with over 400 universities in 33 European countries. The number of available courses held in English increases every year. Successful experience of academic staff exchange ensures international scope, ideas and innovations in the study environment. We are glad that the faculties are active in involving visiting professors in the study process.
