What others are
saying about us

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.
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
The Faculty of Social Sciences provides interesting seminars with small groups and high quality.
MARCEL SCHULZ, exchange student, University of Greifswald in Germany
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.
