Overview

Having grown out of Riga Medical Institute, Riga Stradins University offers medicine and health care studies and dynamic social science studies steeped in historic traditions, but incorporating the latest world trends. RSU`s teaching staff are professionals in their areas of expertise and are opinion leaders in society. Our diplomas open the way to interesting professions in both Latvia and in the wider world. Former students of the University`s medicine and healthcare programmes treat patients in Latvia`s largest hospitals and outpatient clinics. The study system at RSU is based not only on memorising, but also on the development of analytical and critical thinking. The social sciences study programmes use the module system, where a maximum of three subjects are studied at one time and tests are taken at the conclusion of studies in each respective subject.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to train highly qualified experts in the fields of healthcare and social sciences, so that they can serve the society of Latvia, the European Union, as well as the world. So that the knowledge, skills and attitude they have acquired during their studies would comply with EU standards and humane traditions, and it would form a firm basis for lifelong learning. Our mission is to develop scientific activities according to the RSU profile by establishing a basis for acquiring a status of a life science university.
