ERASMUS exchange studies at RGSL
Riga Graduate School of Law (RGSL) welcomes undergraduate (Bachelor) and graduate (Masters) students from Partner Universities to spend one or two semesters at RGSL. Incoming students have to be nominated by their home university.
Official nominations of incoming students for the 1st semester of academic year 2023/2024 should be submitted by Erasmus coordinators of RGSL partner universities ONLY starting 1 April 2023 until 10 May 2023 via special online form (sending university will receive it in advance). ONLINE applications of nominated students must be submitted 15 April - 15 May 2023 (The application LINK will be available here)
Guidelines will be uploaded by 1 April for Autumn 2023 incoming students. Previous Fact Sheet 2022/23
IMPORTANT CHANGE in 2023/24: in course subjects taught on Masters level (4th and 5th year of law studies) incoming students can obtain only up to 12 ECTS per semester. If more ECTS necessary, students must add introductory Masters foundation courses in legal research (3 ECTS) or legal English (3 ECTS) or combine with Bachelor level subjects - check approval with your home university academic coordinators.
On Bachelor level 27 ECTS of courses per semester is a full workload at RGSL. If incoming students need to take additional subjects to reach 30 ECTS, this will go beyond full study load and might result in class time overlaps.
Courses are taught in English (except Latvian law). Examples of possible bachelor level course combinations, in order to avoid schedule overlaps, are given in the Guidelines for incoming students. Supervised Thesis writing and Research Papers are not available to exchange students.
New yearly plans with 2023/24 study subjects will be available from 1st of June. Previous study modules (subjects listed by 6 week study periods):
Bachelor LAW and BUSINESS updated subjects 2022/2023
Bachelor LAW and DIPLOMACY updated subjects 2022/2023
MASTERS level subjects SPRING 2023
