International Cooperation

ERASMUS POLICY STATEMENT

Riga Medical College of the University of Latvia is continuously contributing towards the key values of EHEA and developing those professional and personal skills that are vital for Health Care professionals in a European multicultural society; we promote long-term and sustainable partnerships and thematic networks with HEIs and labour market players across Europe and partner countries. We aim to continuously improve the international profile and recognition through active involvement in mobility projects and international activities. Under the Erasmus+ the University College currently has 45 Erasmus partners in 21 countries, offering exchange to students and staff in 4 professional higher education study programs – Nursing, Physician Assistant, Massage and Hydrotherapy, and Optometry Assistant. The partnerships are reviewed and evaluated, with the aim to strengthen each relationship. During the period 2014-2020, the university college has balanced the amount of incoming and outgoing health care students, developed its learning, working and social environment, created perspective partnerships with local clinics and social centres to develop the placements for incoming students, and built the capacity in international projects. The objective of participation in Erasmus+ programme is to continue the improvement of quality and relevance of Health Care education, high-skill professionalism, research activities, and increase competence and motivation of teachers. The participation in Erasmus+ projects is building awareness about different health care systems and equipping students and teachers with the skills that are necessary to meet all the future challenges of providing care in a transcultural society. The international experience is fostering positive changes – improvement of study and training process, development and motivation for applied research and pedagogical methods, and strengthening the quality assurance mechanisms.
