Come to RTU

RTU is the largest science-based university in the Baltic States established in 1862. 

We are in the heart of Riga, the capital city of Latvia. Latvia borders the Baltic Sea along with Germany, Sweden and other countries.


RTU has over 150 years of history as a centre of scientific excellence and has Nobel Prize winners, Presidents and Prime Ministers as former professors and students.


We provide an extensive range of engineering, business study and architecture related courses. Local and visiting professors deliver study programmes to local and overseas students in English. 


Latvia has long been recognised as a country of high educational standards. RTU Bachelor, Master and Doctoral degrees are recognised across the globe. RTU has been awarded European University Quality Mark and EU Diploma Supplement Label.


Latvian education is accessible to international students due to its affordable tuition fees and moderate living costs. The tuition fees and other expenses for those who study in Latvia are low compared to most other European countries.


Latvia is a country noted for its safety and religious/cultural tolerance. Open arms welcome all RTU students, be they from across the world or from a neighbouring country. Support is provided throughout the whole enrolment and study period.
