hall open daysFirst of all we would like to thank you for considering Rīga Stradiņš University as your prospective university!

Choosing a university for your studies is not easy as so many factors must be taken into account: which is the best or the friendliest one, will you like the city and the people? That is why we kindly invite you to visit us during one of our Open Days and see the University and the city with your own eyes.

You are welcome to participate in the Open Days on any of the following Fridays:

  • 27 October 2017 at 10:00
  • 24 November 2017 at 10:00

Please apply for an Open Day at least three days in advance.

A typical Open Day includes:

The visit at the University normally takes 2 to 3 hours. Afterwards you are welcome to enjoy Riga's Old Town and other tourist attractions – we will provide you with some suggestions and a map of the city centre.

Please note that the Open Days are designed primarily for prospective applicants. We will be happy to see all accepted students during Orientation Week!

We suggest using the services of BalticTaxi, as their drivers speak English, accept credit cards, and the cars are equipped with free Wi-Fi.
