Study programme selection criteria

Study programmes promoted on are selected based on a set of criteria defined by the Latvian Ministry of Education and Science. The criteria include:

  • the study programme is delivered in its entirety in an EU language,
  • the study programme has been accredited for the maximum allowed period of 6 years,
  • full time international students must already be studying in the programme.

All of the higher education institutions delivering the programmes promoted on have signed a Good Practice Agreement with the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Latvia. With this Agreement the higher education institutions have undertaken to observe good practice in attracting international students and ensuring the delivery of a high-quality study process. Each higher education institution promises to observe good faith and ethical principles, providing only true information in marketing activities and advertising campaigns for international students.
