COVID-19 Precautionary Measures & Updates

COVID-19 Precautionary Measures & Updates

The health and safety of students and staff is our highest priority, therefore in the season of 2020/2021 SSE Riga is focused on making a safe learning experience while ensuring continuity of teaching. 

SSE Riga started the study year in August by offering a blend of on-campus and online learning, however, from mid-October SSE Riga has switched to fully online operations in compliance with the requirements determined in the Cabinet Regulations No. 360.

These regulations determine that the completion of higher education study programmes shall be held remotely, except for the completion of the practical part, which cannot be performed remotely.

SSE Riga premises will be closed for students during the emergency period. Also, the premises of the SSE Riga library will be closed (but services ongoing) during this time.
