U-Multirank is an independent ranking prepared with seed funding from the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme. U-Multirank is a multidimensional, user-driven approach to international ranking of higher education institutions. It compares the performances of higher education institutions in the five dimensions of university activity: teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer, international orientation and regional engagement.
RTA ranks among 25 best universities worldwide in terms of the mobility of students and has met the following criteria in the development of the region: the number of graduates with bachelor`s degree working in the region, the number of graduates with master`s degree working in the region, student internships in the region.
RTA has been the participant of the ERASMUS+ programme for several years, thus, providing students with internships and studies outside Latvia. Deputy Rector for Cooperation and Development, Assoc. Professor Gunārs Strods notes that students of RTA have great opportunities to study at European higher education institutions and gain valuable experience at the world`s leading companies.
At the academy, ERASMUS+ programme is implemented by International Office ensuring international cooperation and establishing contacts abroad with aim to maintain and further develop study and research standards. With aim to attract international students for studies at RTA, International Student Department has been established at RTA since 2013.
Within student mobility, RTA students regularly study abroad in Bulgaria, Lithuania, Poland, Denmark, etc., while academic staff of RTA use the exchange programme to widen knowledge and gain experience.
