Here are some of the reasons to study in the Universities in Latvia.

Every city in the Baltic region has an old part of the town and a new part of the town. Since there is a significant Soviet Union influence on these countries, most of these countries have retained their rustic and vintage feel, mostly owing to disinterest towards the western idea of modernization and also because of lack of funds. This is partly the reason for the low costs of living as well as the low student tuition fees in the universities in Latvia. Since one has to enter through Latvia for other Baltic countries, this acts as a fulcrum as a springboard where students can enrich their experience by traveling during their stay and study in Latvia.

Study and Work in Latvia

It is a good opportunity to get work experience in the international market. There are no restrictions for students from other countries to do a part-time job while they are on a student permit in Latvia. However, time work rights during the course are prohibited to the International Students but they can work for at least 20 hours per week.
