Come, study medicine in Latvia!
The Faculty of Medicine offers professional education, and the opportunity to study medicine under the guidance of knowledgeable professors from universities from Latvia and abroad. As a student of the “Medicine” programme, you will acquire up-to-date knowledge and skills, which are competitive in Europe and the rest of the world.
We also offer full-time studies in other programmes and disciplines. If you wish to study dentistry in Latvia, Rīga Stradiņš University would be a great option. Here are the top 5 reasons:
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 highly 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 6,000 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
Our graduates are employed in prestigious institutions and organisations all over Europe and the degree obtained at RSU successfully allows them to compete in the marketplace of any European country. Our graduates can continue their studies in residency in the fields of oral maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, prosthodontics, periodontics, endodontics, orthotics and paediatric dentistry.
5. RĪGA, THE CITY OF INSPIRATION
Moreover, Rīga 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 Rīga 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.
