We know that these first days will be filled with mixed emotions of both joy and nerves. This is absolutely normal – so many new things to learn and new friends to make! SSE Rigans have a strong sense of belonging to the school – a sense of belonging that has remained constant over the years among all alike: current students, former students, faculty members, and staff. Class of 2025: it is up to us how we develop relationships; so we wish you to keep an open mind and be curious to discover more as you grow and say “yes” to challenges. The SSE Riga staff and alumni community will assist you without a doubt because that's just how things work around here.

In total, 155 Bachelor students from 7 countries have started their three-year journey at SSE Riga. 13 students from Ukraine are among them. We will also have students representing Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Lithuania, Russia and of course Latvia!

SSE Riga full-time students are joined by 35 exchange students. Studying and sharing knowledge with students from other countries prepares all of us for efficient collaboration in a global society. With the addition of exchange students from Austria (1), Estonia (1), France (4), Germany (13), Italy (4), the Netherlands (2), Portugal (3), Russia (2), Spain (3), Sweden (1), Ukraine (1), our community has grown even more international.

Happy new academic year!
