Every spring, the future physmatists – the friendly nickname given to those studying at the Faculty of Physics, Mathematics and Optometry – are invited to take part in the event called "In Student's Shoes"! It is an opportunity to spend a day with a student of the faculty who is currently studying in the study programme of interest. During the event "In Student's Shoes" students get to know the study life and teaching staff, participate in lectures, seminars and learn all about extracurricular activities at the University of Latvia, Faculty of Physics, Mathematics and Optometry.

The event can take place in person or remotely, depending on the organisation of the study process at the faculty during the given time.

All those interested are invited to participate in the event, but especially the secondary school students who plan to begin studying physics, mathematics or optometry at the University of Latvia.
