Higher education system comprises both academic higher education and professional higher education. Bakalaurs (Bachelor’s) and maģistrs (Master’s) degrees are awarded both in academic and professional higher education programmes.
The objectives of the academic higher education (HE) are to prepare graduates for an independent research work, as well as to provide theoretical background for professional activities.
Academic programmes leading to a bakalaurs (Bachelor’s) degree comprise 120–160 credit points (henceforth – CP)1 (160–240 ECTS). The duration of full-time studies is 6–8 semesters (3–4 years).
Academic programmes leading to maģistrs (Master’s) degree comprise 40–80 CP (60–120 ECTS). The duration of full-time studies is 2–4 semesters (1–2 years).
Total duration of full-time Bachelor’s and Master’s studies is at least 5 years.
Academic education programmes are implemented according to the state standard of the academic education.
The objectives of the professional HE are to provide in-depth knowledge in a particular field, preparing graduates for design or improvement of systems, products and technologies, as well as to prepare them for creative, research and teaching activities in this field.
Professional HE programmes leading to a professional bakalaurs (Bachelor’s) degree are designed to ensure a professional competence, they comprise at least 160 CP (240 ECTS) including practical placement of ≥ 26 CP (39 ECTS). The duration of full-time studies is at least 8 semesters (4 years).
Professional HE programmes leading to a professional maģistrs (Master’s) degree comprise no less than 40 CP (60 ECTS) including practical placements of ≥ 6 CP (9 ECTS). The duration of full-time studies is at least 2 semesters (1 year).
Total duration of full-time Bachelor’s and Master’s studies is at least 5 years.
Graduates of both types of bakalaurs (Bachelor’s) degree have access to Master’s studies, graduates of the maģistrs (Master’s) degree – to doctoral studies.
Degrees obtained in medicine, dentistry and pharmacy professional studies (5 and 6 years of studies) are referenced to the maģistrs (Master’s) degree and the graduates can continue their studies in doctoral level programmes.
In the professional HE there are other types of programmes apart from Bachelor’s and Master’s study programmes.
- First level professional HE(college) study programmes that lead to the 4th level professional qualification (LQF level 5). Programmes comprise 80–120 CP (120–180 ECTS), and these programmes are mainly targeted at labour market, yet the graduates can continue their studies in second level professional HE programmes.
- Second level professional HEstudy programmes that lead to the 5th level professional qualification (LQF level 6–7). These programmes can comprise either at least 40 CP (60 ECTS) for holders of bakalaurs (Bachelor’s) degree or at least 160 CP (240 ECTS) for secondary school leavers. In both cases programmes should include a practical placement and graduation examinations. If study programme comprises 160 CP (240 ECTS) and the compulsory part of a bakalaurs (Bachelor’s) programme, graduates obtain access to Master’s studies.
