Reducing study programme fragmentation and promoting study internationalisation at Rīga Stradiņš University

Project Details


EU Structural Funds ESF. RSU has drafted a plan for the development and consolidation of study programmes in cooperation with industry experts, and by involving academic staff, general staff and student representatives. The Study Programme Development and Consolidation Assessment Board of the Ministry of Education and Science has coordinated the development of six new study programmes at RSU.
The development of these new study programmes contributes to the broadening of the internationally competitive education offered at RSU by strengthening the fields of study that have the greatest potential for growth.
All newly created study programmes will be implemented by strategically cooperating with Latvian and international institutions of higher education, thus reducing the fragmentation of the study programmes, promoting international cooperation and sharing resources. It is intended for the doctoral study programmes to share resources among several study programmes implemented by RSU in this way creating research-based doctoral study programmes.
