Application procedures

The minimum qualification required to enrol in a doctoral-level programme is a Master's or equivalent.

Applications are usually submitted in July / August depending on the HEI.

The enrolment procedure is as follows:

  • Applicant registration (submission of necessary documents)
  • Contest for study places (including entrance exam)
  • Announcement of contest results
  • Signature of study agreement
  • Registration as a student

Potential candidates should contact HEIs about the application procedure.

The level of proficiency required in the local language depends on the institution and the programme. State HEIs implement study programmes in Latvian but programmes in foreign languages and special programmes for students from abroad exist. It is therefore possible to pursue doctoral studies in English.
