how much do i need for shared apartment,meal,transport and most important minimum part time wages as a student and maximum jobs hrs a can student do while study
I wrote a lot in the past about the "part-time jobs" for foreign students, you can read this thread above, it contains lots of infos and also follow the additional links like this
. So the primary points: you should know the Latvian language (or you will get mostly no job or non-well-paid job if you don't know Latvian language enough) and you may rely only on kind of "dirty" jobs like in bars/restaurants/markets, if you are about part job. Note that there is more than 15% of all potential workers unemployed in Latvia, and overall, all jobs come with low-paid wages, not like in Europe (that's why a lot of youth migrates from Latvia to Europe).
: if you are about Riga, count on not less than EUR 300/month
for a very small flat located somewhere 30-40 mins of driving from the city center; in the city center, fees are much higher. Still, you could rent a room for smaller fees, but for a foreign person it will be hard-to-find. Outside of Riga, rent fees become lower, as longer is distance from the capital, as lower fees.
Meal: depends on your tastes. Modest meals
could cost you about 100-150 EUR/month
if you cook on your own and buy ingredients in cheap shops. If you decide to eat in the Riga center, count on EUR 10 at least for the good dinner, or EUR 3-5 at least for "student meals" like Chinese food or McDonalds.
Transport: the public transport
in Riga now costs EUR 1,15
per ticket to one direction, if you buy the ticket NOT in the transport itself (in kiosks like Narvesen). If you buy in the transport, it will cost you EUR 2
in one direction. Tickets in suburban electric trains depend on your location, you could check prices at pv.lv
. You could also rent taxies via Apple or Android apps like Alviksa or Taxify, but I doubt this could be truly for students (despite if you don't drive alone, the bulk price for all passengers sometimes could be lower than if you'd use the public transport).
