STUDIES ABROAD

Any student of the CBA who has completed at least one semester of studies can apply for participation in the Erasmus+ program. Students have the opportunity to choose exchange studies at one of the partner universities, depending on the study program.

Applying for the study exchange program takes place twice a year, respectively, in the spring semester for studies in the fall semester, and in the fall semester for studies in the spring semester. Students can apply for mobility at any of the foreign universities participating in the Erasmus+ program which have signed partnership agreement with the CBA.

Students can take part in the Erasmus+ program study mobility several times, not exceeding 12 months in total. The minimum duration of study mobility within the Erasmus+ program is three months.

The study period abroad is recognized academically.

Applying to Study Abroad

In order to evaluate the student’s participation in Erasmus+ study exchange, the student must meet certain criteria (see “Criteria for mobility” section).

To apply for participation in the Erasmus+, you must fill in the application form which must be printed, signed and then submitted to the International Relations Coordinator of the CBA.

In addition, the student must submit a letter of motivation, describing why he/she should be chosen. The letter should be sent to ieva.antone@bvk.lv.

For mobility to be accepted, the information in all documents must match. Special attention should be paid to the fact that study mobility dates must be the same everywhere, and that the number of credit points in the Learning Agreement is consistent with the Transcript of records.

The Erasmus+ period will only be recognized academically if all the documents mentioned above are submitted to the International Relations Coordinator of the CBA and the information contained therein will coincide.
