What others are
saying about us

The Faculty of Social Sciences provides interesting seminars with small groups and high quality.
MARCEL SCHULZ, exchange student, University of Greifswald in Germany
I enjoyed the MISOCO programme a lot – mainly because I had a chance to see different teaching and studying approaches and I could get information about wider range of resources... Staying in Riga was very interesting and I consider myself lucky that I went there ..it offers different point of view than you can get in Western Europe.
LENKA PAVELKOVA (CZ), Erasmus Mundus MISOCO student
I wanted to learn a language, which is smaller – to know a language that is out of the ordinary makes a person interesting at the job market. Everybody speaks English, but who speaks Latvian?
MARCEL SCHULZ Exchange student, University of Greifswald in Germany
Riga is a beautiful city, and I never got tired off walking and biking around everywhere! I could have chosen to spend a semester in Germany, Ireland or Latvia, and I'm grateful that I chose Latvia for the culture, people, and my academic experience.
BERIT ENGSTROM (USA), Erasmus Mundus MISOCO student
I found professors at the UL to be welcoming and supportive in both schoolwork and adjusting to living in a different culture. Some of the perspectives on migration discussed by my fellow students were very different than my own and I was forced to engage in challenging discussions and reflect on my own beliefs and understandings.
BERIT ENGSTROM (USA), Erasmus Mundus MISOCO student
The Baltic culture is fascinating to me: Riga, with his different styles; from Art Noveau, over soviet to modern style offers the city a lot of historical moments and different faces. Also I wanted to discover the whole region: The nature offers great pictures for the human eye.
