Riga Technical University has more than 20 years of experience in organizing summer/winter schools and all sorts of short-term courses
From 2000 the RTU has organized various summer/winter schools for students and participants from all over the world. The academic personnel of the Faculties together with their colleagues from industries and partner universities share their unique theoretical knowledge and practical experience with participants, motivating them to reach ambitious goals and advance their career. More than 1500 participants have already used this opportunity.
Summer/winter schools are an excellent, additional educational opportunity for those students who want to spend their free time outside degree studies meaningfully – acquiring new knowledge, practical skills and experience. Summer/winter schools provide not only intensive face-to-face classes, but also extracurricular activities that are created to contribute not only supplement knowledge, but also to increase socialization and cultural awareness.
Global higher education institutions’ experience gained in many years organizing short-term courses convenes with Riga Technical University’s confidence that summer/winter schools have a positive effect on students and promote useful skills development. We are convinced that they develop self-confidence and independent learning skills, as summer/winter schools tend to increase the true potential of participants and reduce doubts about their abilities. Participation in this type of educational school allows you to enjoy the experience provided by an intensive and joint action study environment, which envisages studies in small groups in close cooperation, interaction with the teacher, which allows you to ask questions and promotes students’ creativity.
