The University of Jelgava was founded in 1775 as the Academia Petrina; it has existed in its current form for almost 80 years. Thanks to its Faculties of Veterinary Medicine, Forestry, Business, Agriculture and Engineering, it is the only institution for veterinary medicine in Latvia, with around 7,000 students and 300 professors and researchers.

Modern laboratories and medical facilities make the University of Jelgava a centre for innovation and research, and the modern library is connected to an excellent information centre. For the last 80 years, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine—made up of various departments, animal clinics (e.g., those for small pets, horses and farm animals), research centres, research laboratories and an institute for pathology—has specialised in diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Furthermore, the faculty works closely with various pharmaceutical companies as well as the food industry.

Studying in Jelgava pfeil_top

Jelgava is a university characterized by the German-Baltic culture and is located approximately only 40 km from Latvia’s capital, Riga, and is one of the most beautiful cities in the country, which is a member state of both the EU and NATO. The old castle of the Dukes of Courland, built in 1266 on an island on the river, was replaced by a palace in 1772, and it is within the halls of this palace that the university of Jelgava has its headquarters today. In Jelgava, you can easily communicate in English, as many Latvians speak English well.

The cost of living is much cheaper than in other European countries, and there are several good residences for international students with low rental costs. The leisure opportunities are also very wide-ranging; you can sail on the Baltic sea, go for a jog through the city, and explore the golf courses, riding clubs or university sporting clubs. Culturally, the city displays its musical side through many festivals, including jazz, classical, or modern dance. Students are also welcome to bring their pets to Jelgava!
