Study medicine or dentistry in Latvia!
Challenging and rigorous study programmes, as well as liberal tuition fees, are a good reason to consider studying in Latvia, and most notably at RSU. In recent years our medical and dental programmes have become very popular among international students, and we typically receive three applications per place – so the competition is high, but once you are accepted, you become part of the RSU family – this ensures that even as an undergaduate student you will be able to study Medicine or Dentistry under the supervision of renowned professors, and in our clinical training institutions you will acquire up-to-date knowledge and skills, which are competitive in Europe and the rest of the world.
There are currently five faculties at RSU which offer various study programmes in medicine and healthcare: Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Dentistry (includes pre-clinical learning), Faculty of Pharmacy, Faculty of Rehabilitation, and Faculty of Public Health and Social Welfare.
Here are the Top 5 reasons, why you should study at RSU:
1. UNFORGETTABLE STUDY PROCESS
The entire clinical study process in dentistry is carried out on modern dentistry technologies, with the most up-to-date dental filling materials and interactive technologies. Additionally, the teaching staff tries to apply innovative teaching methods throughout the entire study process. As an international student at RSU, you can also participate in the Erasmus exchange programmes, which allow you to spend one semester in another European university, and who knows, maybe in your hometown.
2. INDIVIDUAL APPROACH
We guarantee studies in small groups of 10 people, and lectures and practical classes taught in a collegial way by recognised professionals and specialists in their field, as all members of the academic staff have practiced and received qualifications in many European universities and clinics.
3. EXCELLENT TEACHING AND RESEARCH
More than 7,000 students at RSU study in departments that are accredited and recognised nationally and internationally for the quality of their teaching and research. However, we encourage not only the academic staff, but also students to participate in scientific work and projects. RSU is ranked among the best universities in the Baltic States.
4. YOUR FUTURE CAREER
RSU diplomas are recognised in the EU/EEA, and our graduates are employed in prestigeous institutions and organisations all over Europe and the degree obtained at RSU successfully allows them to compete in any country. Our graduates are encouraged to continue their studies in residency in the fields of medicine, as well as dentistry, e.g., oral maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, prosthodontics, periodontics, endodontics, orthotics and paediatric dentistry.
5. RIGA, THE CITY OF INSPIRATION
Riga will inspire you, too. Founded in 1201, it is a city with an interesting history and old traditions, but it is also a city with an abundant and modern cultural life. You will be able to spend your spare time in the European cultural environment that Riga offers: attend concerts (modern and classical alike), the opera, dance and sports clubs, play golf and tennis, go swimming or hiking. In short – enjoy a vibrant modern city life.
