After obtaining Bachelor’s degree the graduates have an opportunity to work at organizations performing software development, delivery, and maintenance. They also are entitled to continue their studies as Master students in Information Technology or Computer Science in some of the higher education institutions of Latvia or the European Union.
Assessment of students’ knowledge is a continuous process, which lasts during the whole semester and it is done on the basis of independent assignments and tests, as well as passing credit tests and examinations twice a year. During the semester each course envisages several independent assignments – practical and laboratory works, tests and reports. At the end of each course, students pass a written or oral examination or a credit test. In some courses, during which both lectures and laboratory works are planned, students take both a credit test and an examination. Assessment is made by a ten-point scale or with the help of a credit test.

Brian Scott, Bachelor of Computer Sciences student (Sri Lanka)
Once I completed my professional diploma I was looking to follow my future studies in northern European countryside. After considering many countries and courses, Liepaja University (LiepU) was the best pick for me.
Liepaja is a calm and a beautiful city blessed with many natural resources. Long white sandy coastline, beautiful lakes and rivers flow through the city making it an elegant environment, where to have a peaceful student life. Along with study sessions I get opportunities to enjoy its music, dances and other culture programmes.
I found that life in Liepaja is much simple and affordable compared to other major cities in Latvia and Baltic region. Also the staff of LiepU has been very friendly and supportive from the day I started my application process, which helped me to reach my educational plans quicker and to hassle free.
Since LiepU is a state university students here get all facilities and recognition of European education system, which is accreditated in EU and my home country Sri Lanka as well.
