SCHOOL 2022 - Skola fair gathers many future students

Skola fair gathers many future students


The Skola 2022 international education fair, Latvia’s biggest education event of the year, ended a success on 13 March in Ķīpsala. It took place at the same time as Latvian Book Fair 2022 and PetExpo 2022. Over its three days, the fair in Ķīpsala attracted 22,915 interested guests.

Though because of the pandemic, this year’s Skola was smaller than usual, with 42 participants from Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, its content was very diverse and well-prepared with an extensive schedule of events. We are happy to have received nothing but positive feedback from our guests, and some young people said that it was a great pleasure to meet in person, as long-term restrictions made career choices more limited.

For three days, 11 to 13 March, visitors were actively interested in what universities, colleges, vocational schools and other education institutions had to offer, as well as opportunities to study abroad. They often had questions for instructors and students, asking about study programmes, tuition-free opportunities, exchange studies and internships, as well as extracurricular activities. They also tried tests for various professions, met with career counsellors, attended exciting events on the Datorium tech stage, and took part in master classes by uzvediba.lv.

A seminar for teachers and parents took place both in-person and online, talking about how to discuss war and other very serious topics with children. Participants of the exhibition presented their current offers on the Open Stage, and the presentations were also streamed online.
