To have an international baccalaureate from a Latvian educational institute amounts to much. Although the student can get admission with or without IELTS, there are some institutes that mandate it to have English language testing done beforehand to check the proficiency. The average test scores for IELTS are 6 overall.
There are numerous grounds for choosing Latvia as a study abroad destination. One such is the 20 hour time period given to the students in order to work while studying and the 6 months stay back option provided to the students who have successfully completed their studies to search for jobs.
Studying in Latvia holds other benefits, such as low tuition fees, reasonable cost of living, scholarships offered to deserving students, a wide job market for overseas students, and a variety of courses to choose from.
