Exchange programs


Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is the biggest student association in Europe. ESN works for the creation of a more mobile and flexible education environment by supporting and developing the student exchange from different levels.

Faculty of Social Sciences participates in various international activities. A wider exchange of students and lecturers takes place within framework of the European Commission initiative Erasmus+ for Higher Education. Students use the opportunity to study in one of the partnership higher learning establishments as well as acquire practical skills in one of foreign companies or perform a research as part of their doctoral studies. We have more than 100 partnership higher learning establishments. The number of incoming students during an academic year is from 45 to 65. The outgoing student number is from 35 to 50.

Within framework of co-operation agreements of various duration students from Russia, Taiwan, China, Georgia and Japan also arrive to the faculty, while students from Faculty of Social Sciences go to Russia and South Africa.

saying about us

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?

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 offers different point of view than you can get in Western Europe.
