About Doctoral School

The Doctoral School is an institution within University of Latvia launched to support young scholars during their research training.

The School carries out activities related to the international dimension of the doctoral degree and enhances the degree’s competitiveness in the job market, which would in turn enhance the graduates’ personal and professional career.  Research training at the School is associated with the process of deepening and widening students’ knowledge of the European integration. Special attention is given to the integration among the Baltic States within the EU, as well as regional cooperation and development around the Baltic Sea.  Participation in the School’s activities helps to improve skills in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research.

The School cooperates with different research facilities in the University of Latvia, other educational and research establishments in the country, as well as with partners from both EU and non-EU member states.  This network of cooperation provides a solid platform for advanced studies that offers added value both within and outside of a student’s research.  Doctoral and master students from different subject areas and study programmes, such as economics, law, political sciences, management, culture, geography, European studies and Baltic Sea Region studies are welcomed to join the School and to participate in its events and activities.

The Doctoral School organizes guest lectures, seminars, regular discussions, conferences and Jean Monnet doctoral colloquia as a part of the European Commission Jean Monnet Life Learning Programme. The School also arranges information sessions, promotional events and interaction with industry, keeping abreast of the pulse of external stakeholders.
