26References from exchange studentautumn09, Faculty of Economics and managementMy name is Inna and currently I am an exchange student in Riga. I am very glad I have had an opportunity to study in the University of Latvia during this year due to many reasons. It is common, that when you are about to go abroad to a country you have never been before, you may feel worried about million of things that await you there. At the Faculty of Economics, you will find a wide array of subjects offered in English, classes are practical and dynamic and the teachers are always there to help us. One thing is clear: the members of ESN Riga team will do their best to make your stay here safe, comfortable and extremely profitable. Perhaps, it is because of friendly atmosphere and caring people... or maybe because of our student life that is so intensive and full of amazing events specially organized for us but I know one thing for sure: thanks to the University of Latvia these beautiful memories will last a lifetime.Experience it yourself, come to the University of Latvia and get truly great life experience!Inna StolcereSpain, University of ValenciaTourism Degree
