We would like to thank you for considering Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) as your prospective university!

Choosing a university abroad for your studies is not easy as so many factors must be taken into account: which is the best university? Which is the friendliest one? Will you like the city and the people? Join our Open Days to find out what RSU has to offer and what student life in Riga is like!

RSU Open Days are a unique opportunity for you to:

  • Learn about the study programmes we offer in English;
  • Get to know the benefits of studying in Europe and in Latvia;
  • Get to know the academic admissions requirements;
  • Virtually meet several of our students;

* The decision about organising Open Days on-site will be made in 2022 and will depend on the epidemiological situation in Latvia and the world.

All times are indicated in the EET or Eastern European Time Zone that is used in Latvia. Depending on the season and because of the Daylight Saving Time principle, the EET time zone is equivalent to UTC/GMT +2 or UTC/GMT +3. Please check the local time in Latvia when planning your attendance in one or several of the events so that you do not miss the start of the event by an hour or several hours!
