1 Daugavpils University, Daugavpils, Latvia
2 ISMA University, Latvia
3 Rıga Stradiņš University, Latvia
The authors felt it necessary to update the discussion, which is associated with higher education, as one of the forms, which operates under free market conditions, and the relationship that is established between the higher education institutions and the students. Higher Education Institutions is a “service provider”, but the student recipient of the service – “consumer”. Both the Latvian and international higher education area is very different and there are conflicting views on the issue. Consequently, the authors wanted to analyze the current situation in Latvia, look at the legal framework relating to the above problem and to provide their views.
