There is one British Council test centre in Latvias capital Riga. According to our database, there are 6 universities in Latvia that accept the IELTS test. The average IELTS score requirement for organisations accepting IELTS in Latvia is 5.8.

For a country of just over two million inhabitants, Latvia has a wealth of both public and private higher education opportunities – 59 universities and colleges. Programmes taught in foreign languages (mainly English and Russian with a few German and Scandinavian language programmes) cover a wide range of fields, from architecture to social sciences. In particular, medical studies and qualifications in the aviation industry are the most popular study options in the country. Find the best information about what it’s like to study in Riga, including degree course offers, career opportunities, student life, living costs, and more.

Although the official state language is Latvian, international students can easily get around with a command of Russian and English, as a large part of the population of Riga is Russian speaking, and English is used in the bigger cities. In public universities, the language of instruction is usually Latvian, but also include courses in English for foreign students.

There are almost 200 international study programmes (Bachelors, Masters and PhDs) and courses taught entirely in English for those who want to study abroad in Latvia. You can usually find Russian-taught courses in private universities. There are no unified language requirements aimed at foreign students in Latvia. An advantage of studying abroad in Latvia is that most higher education institutions do not strictly define the need for internationally recognized language tests (although some schools ask for IELTS or TOEFL). Language skills are usually checked during the interview process of prospective student. It is possible that the higher education establishment organises its own formal testing for language skills.

To study in English at one of the universities in Latvia, you may need a proof of English proficiency. There are several standardised English tests that you can take to proof your English level, such as the PTE (Pearson Test of English), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System), offered by British Council and IDP. IELTS is the most popular of these tests, with British Council offering more than 500 test locations and being accepted by more than 9,000 organisations world-wide.

10 most popular study destinations for students in Latvia

  • I took the IELTS test, which was challenging, but I really enjoyed preparing for it, as my level of English had significantly improved.

  • I chose IELTS and I wouldn’t say it was a hard exam to take and pass, but it was definitely an interesting and advantageous experience, as I was able to improve my knowledge of the academic language that later on helped me in my studies, as it still does!

  • I have chosen IELTS, because it is cheaper and reflects more what you can deal with than how you can circle the grammar closed questions. I liked that test, because you can handle the topics of the two essays there as you wish.

  • More than 800 British Council test locations
  • Accepted by more than 9,000 institutions
  • More than 2.5 million tests taken last year
