Orientation Week | RSU Skip to main content

Orientation Week is organised a week before the beginning of the academic year, when arriving international students are welcomed at the University. It is designed to help you as a new student to meet your new classmates, settle in to university life and get to know your new surroundings. 

What happens during Orientation Week?

The Orientation Week includes important and serious activities, such as signing the study agreement as well as general fun stuff, like getting to know new people throughout the week and participating in the welcoming party at the end of the week.

During the Orientation Week you will:

  • Meet other international students and staff of the International Office.

  • Receive a Welcoming Package, which includes items (like information about e-ticket, which gives you 70 % discount on all public transport in Riga) and other important information, to commence your studies at RSU.

  • Receive the timetable of your study programme.

  • Have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the University campus.

  • Register for studies and sign the Study Agreement (students are enrolled at RSU with Rector’s Order after signing Study Agreement and fulfilling all obligations stated in it).

  • Be able to participate in other social and cultural activities organised by the International Department and the Student Council.

No lectures or seminars are held during this week; however commencing international students are expected to be available to attend RSU during this week.
